The Range Rover is a full-size four-wheel drive sports utility vehicle (SUV) made by Land Rover and serves as its flagship model.

The Rover Company is experimenting with a larger model than the Land Rover Series in 1951 when the Rover P4-based two-wheel-drive “Road Rover” project was developed by Gordon Bashford. It was postponed in 1958, and the idea lay dormant until 1966 when engineers SPEN King and Bashford set to work on a new model.
In 1967, the first Range Rover prototype built with the classic Range Rover shape discernible, but with a different grille and headlights configuration, the design of the Range Rover in 1969. Twenty-six velar engineering development vehicles were built between 1969 and finalized in 1970 and left the number plates YVB151H to YVB177H.
Although he did not stand. 3, the vehicle YVB 153H believed the first production line to have been as a vehicle that color was an urgent need for marketing. The name velar is derived from the Italian “velar” means veil or cover. Range Rover development engineer Geof Miller used the name as a decoy for the registration of pre-production Range Rovers. The velar company is registered in London and produced 40 pre-production vehicles built between 1967 and 1970. Most of these velar pre-production vehicles accounted for and survive in custody.
The Range Rover is sent in 1970. launched in the early 1970s, the Musée du Louvre in Paris exhibited a Range Rover as an “exemplary work of industrial design”. In 1972 the British Trans America Expedition is the first vehicle-based expedition to the Americas crossed from north to south, including through the roadless DARIEN Gap. The specially adapted Range Rovers used for this expedition is now on display in the British motor industry Heritage Trust collection at Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Between 1974 and 1987, Land Rover vehicles sold only in the United States through the gray market. The Land Rover company began selling the Range Rover officially in the US on 16 March 1987. From then until 1993, the US marketing was all in the name of Range Rover because it was the only model in the US market. In 1993, with the arrival of the Defender 110 and the imminent arrival of the Land Rover Discovery, sales in the US business under the name “Land Rover North America.” In 2005, Land Rover launched a different model to the Range Rover brand – the Range Rover Sport, which is based on the Land Rover Discovery platform, but the new Range Rover Sport, the latest Range Rover platform.

A Range Rover was used to win 1979 first and 1981 Paris-Dakar Rally, completing a race distance in each case of about 10,000 km. Range Rover also participated in the East African Safari throughout the 1980s. On 26 November 2004, Land Rover released the first photos of the Range Rover Sport, a new model it plans to show to the public for the first time at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The Range Rover Sport is a development production car from the Range Stormer concept vehicle the company showcased at the 2004 North American International Auto Show.
Although known as the Range Rover Sport “L319”, it was not just a new specification in the Range Rover line-up, but rather a custom Discovery “L320”, or T5 platform Discovery / LR3 with Range Rover exterior styling and Range Rover interior seating and dash forms, a shortened wheelbase, smaller luggage capacity and a single, rather than split tailgate that back was just for styling improvements. As model prices close to the upper Discovery models, the sport is the biggest seller of all Land Rover products. This model has been released for sale at the end of 2005 as a model in 2006.
Range Rover Sport
In 2013, a redesigned version released for sale as a 2014 model year “L494”.
