The Impressive History Behind Land Rover

The Beginning

The concept of the Land Rover was first introduced through hand-drawn sketches in 1947. More specifically, a man named Maurice Wilks drew a picture of a vehicle ripping through a beach in Welch. However, when creating this drawing, Wilks was totally unaware that his work would soon become the inspiration for the Land Rover vehicles we have come to know and love.

There are many other versions of how the Land Rover came to be. One of these theories claims that the Land Rover design was based off of that of the Jeep. These claims have never been confirmed by Jeep or by Land Rover, so there is no way to tell if there is actual truth to that tale. One thing the initial Land Rover model did copy was the coloring of military vehicles at the time, which makes sense, considering the vehicle first became available to the public in 1948. Initially, this vehicle came to under the Rover Company, but found its own way in 1976 and Land Rover as a vehicle manufacturer was officially born.

Trial and Error

Throughout time, Land Rover has launched various vehicles into the automotive world. With each new release they were able to find out what worked best and tweak the next model to fit the needs and wants of consumers, starting with the Series II in 1958. By 1976 the millionth model of the Land Rover had been produced and it was clear that Land Rover had a vehicle that would be able to appeal to consumers for many years to come.

A Design that Withstands Time

As with many vehicle manufacturers, Land Rover has changed the design and available models under its name many times. However, regardless of the kind of vehicle they created, drivers could always count on being able to receive a quality product that clearly showed how intricate and detailed the craftsmanship was. Never skimping on the details is something that Land Rover vehicles take pride in. Being able to provide consumers with a level of luxury and performance that never wavers is easy for Land Rover thanks to the high-quality parts used to create these vehicles. With a lightweight body structure and a tough exterior, Land Rover vehicles are built for a fun and high-performing driving experience.
