When it comes to the dirty, rough-and-tumble of off-road motoring, few manufacturers can match the legendary Land Rover. As unequivocally British as cucumber sandwiches and tea, Land Rover has become known as the premier producer of vehicles for off the beaten track, with prestige and luxury too. This marque has managed to somehow avoid the agricultural image that plagues most 4x4 vehicles.
From New to Used Land Rovers
Despite the familiar prestige and status, Land Rover came from humble beginnings. The original Series 1 Land Rover was a plain, purpose-built vehicle, without any of the niceties you would find in today’s models. It did, however, feature the characteristic off-road prowess inherent in every Landy. Daring expeditions also helped to cement Landy's formidable reputation, and attest to its capabilities. One notable venture was the Trans-Americas Expedition in 1971 and 1972. A fleet of Range Rovers were used to traverse 18 000 grueling miles through South and North America. Locally, SA’s own Kinglsey Holgate, used a Land Rover on a 64 327 kilometre journey through Africa.
