In 1947, brothers Maurice and Spencer Wilks set out to make inexpensive, very basic, all-terrain vehicles for working environments. The Wilks brothers were on holiday in Anglesey and Maurice, impatient to explain his car-making idea, designed it then and there, on the beach.
1970: The hard-working, four-wheel-drive, farmer's-friend vehicle came off the dirt-road and onto the tarmac. The all-terrain vehicle became a car: the Range Rover had arrived! It was the first 4x4 to perform equally well on the road and off it. It was the first SUV with electronic traction control and fourth-generation Range Rovers were the first all-aluminium SUVs. In 1981, a Range Rover prototype was featured in Vogue magazine, setting the tone for future style and further sophistication. The new Range Rover was named “In Vogue”. It rapidly gained appeal in well-to-do circles, leading to more lavishness in design and options, which included wood trim and picnic hampers. By 1983, the In Vogue Sports Utility Vehicle, which artfully combined heavy-duty off-road practicality with luxurious comfort, had become a desirable object. Part of the appeal is the exhilaration of nonchalantly driving something posh and costly through the mud!
At the same time, 1982, Land Rover utility models were still going strong. The County series (the One-Ten and Ninety), later re-named Defender, kept the rugged Land Rover style unchanged. The basic design got tweaked during the 1990s but the Defender still retains its tough, no-frills, almost-military look. Increased interest in Land Rover utility vehicles prompted the design of a new car, the Discovery, a family model with extra seating and stepped roof. It was the first utility vehicle designed as an everyday family car.
From tough, practical, utility machine to high-end, status-symbol, luxury vehicle: this was not an evolution that was foreseen! Land Rover's beginnings were purely low-budget practical. Nowadays, a Land Rover confers prestige and makes a statement about the driver: it tells the world the owner is well-to-do and sporty, double impact if the tyres are muddy!
The very first Land Rover technical drawing was a sketch in the sand! Maurice, a Rover engineer, greatly admired the US Army Jeep, but found numerous flaws in it. Inspired by the basic Jeep design, he improvised around it, adjusted it, and fundamentally improved it, thus giving the world the durable, functional, hard-working Land Rover. Although many different engines were subsequently fitted, Land Rover production continued practically unchanged, until the arrival of the Sports Utility Vehicle.
