Range Rover - 40 Years of the 4x4 Icon

The Range Rover started out as a more comfortable Land Rover with better road manners than its stable-mate, but customer demand soon turned it into something else altogther. Over the years, the brand has become an icon, synonymous with luxury and prestige, and yet never losing the essentially practical side of its nature.

This book looks at all three generations of Range Rover, and also at its companion model, the hugely successful Range Rover Sport. The whole Range Rover story is explored.

Contents include: The development stories - The production models - The Range Rovers that we never saw - Building Range Rovers through the years - Special conversions - Custom and high-performance derivatives.

Range Rover

When the Range Rover was launched in 1970 it immediately drew attention. Its elegant but practical design mixed with exceptional off-road handling, as well as comfort on metalled roads, seemed to introduce a whole new way of driving.
The Louvre museum in Paris exhibited it as a model of industrial design. Fifty years later, the Range Rover continues to be in demand.

In this comprehensive book, Rover expert James Taylor covers all of the Range Rover models from the 1970s 'classic' to the fifth generation Range Rover of today. The book covers the remarkable engineering achievements of Land Rover in developing a vehicle just as at home on rugged hillsides as it was on the streets of Chelsea. He follows the developments that made the Range Rover ever more in demand as a luxury status symbol.

This book will appeal to all Range Rover enthusiasts, offering concise but comprehensive coverage of one of the most admired British cars.

The Range Rover Story

It's easy to forget that the original Range Rover, launched in 1970, created the luxury sport-utility vehicle market from scratch. A marvel of British ingenuity developed on a shoestring budget, it was the first four-wheel drive car that was as happy on tarmac as it was on rocky terrain. It truly blazed a trail for a worldwide motoring trend.

The Range Rover Story is a timely and concise reminder of all that Range Rover has achieved since a tight-knit group of engineers first turned their thoughts to something ground-breaking.

Making the Range Rover Legend: The 1971-72 British Trans-Americas Expedition

At the bidding of a London-based committee, a team from the British Army undertook the challenge of driving the Pan-American Highway in its entirety from Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego. This would include finding a route for the projected road through Darién in Panama by crossing the notorious Darién Gap.
The Gap was approximately 200 miles long in Panama and northern Colombia and was the missing link in the intercontinental highway's entire length. It would take almost 100 days of concerted effort for the British Trans-America Expedition to drive, winch and float two Range Rovers through this trackless jungle terrain.

The British Trans-America Expedition of 1971/72 wasn't the first to cross the Darién Gap with vehicles as it followed in the wake of expeditions in 1960 and 1961 that variously used a Land Rover, a Jeep pick-up and Chevrolet Corvair cars.
However, its Range Rovers were the first vehicles to cover the whole distance from Alaska to the southern tip of Argentina, a journey that has become legendary and did much to forge the legend of the Range Rover SUV, which was unveiled just a year before the expedition took place.

This book looks at the history of the Darién region and the expeditions of 1960 and 1961 that set the scene for the epic 100 days of Darién a decade later. It contains reminiscences and anecdotes from eight members of the expedition - six soldiers and two Rover Company engineers - as well as previously unpublished photographs, decorative maps and commemorative postal covers.

Rover V8 - The Story of the Engine

Tells the fascinating story of the engine that created a legend in its own lifetime. Starting life as a General Motors design in 1961, but withdrawn three years later in favour of cheaper technology, it reached Rover by chance in the mid-1960s.
Few other British companies then had V8 engines in production, and Rover immediately gained a special status when the V8 entered UK production during 1967.

This was an extraordinarily compact design and also extraordinarily light, thanks to its all-aluminium alloy construction. It was not a temperamental high-performance engine, but had a well-proven and simple architecture that made it both reliable and easy to work on.

Small wonder, then, that the Rover V8 was bought by sports car makers who needed a light, compact and powerful engine. Small wonder that Rover kept it in production for so long, developing multiple different sizes and versions.

Small wonder that the engine is still revered by Rover and Land Rover enthusiasts today, or that its popularity as an aftermarket conversion has ensured that it remains in small-volume production, half a century after entering production in the UK.

Features:
- Origins of the engine at General Motors
- Purchase and adaptation of the engine by Rover
- Every production version covered
- Power and torque comparison figures
- Development of the engine by Rover, 1967-2004
- Carburettor and fuel injection types
- Celebrates 50 years of the Rover V8
- An up-to-date history of Rover V8 engine production.
