The specially commissioned animation depicts how the modern generation retains many of the design traits that date back to the 1970 Classic. The vehicle that is offered on sale today has evolved into the world’s most elegant and sophisticated SUV.
More than 1.7 million units have been sold to date across the globe.
Just like the original model, features including its ‘floating’ roof, distinctive clamshell bonnet, continuous belt line and practical split tailgate all have made their way to the latest offering from Land Rover.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, said: “Range Rover has, over time, achieved iconic design status through a progressive evolution of its unique DNA, culminating in a vehicle of peerless distinction. From its sense of evolution and sophisticated sensibilities inherent in its interior design to its understated yet powerful exterior proportions, Range Rover stands alone. There’s simply nothing else like it.”
The legendary SUV’s capabilities and elegance make it a favourite of royalty, business leaders, politicians and celebrities all over the world. The Range Rover is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, and exported to more than 170 global markets.
