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 in this most wide-ranging of books about the brand.
