2019 Range Rover Evoque

Land Rover’s current purple patch started with the LRX concept penned by Rob Melville, head of McLaren design. Then, as now, Land Rover’s design team is run by Gerry McGovern, the kind of fellow who knows a good thing when he sees it. After what seems like a hundred years on sale, the car that kicked off the renaissance and introduced the world mud-plugging to Victoria Beckham, has been replaced. The Range Rover Evoque second generation is here and it’s…well it’s pretty similar. And that’s not a bad thing. The…

Land Rover Defender Works V8 Is Bonkers

Land Rover Defender Works V8 Announced               Land Rover has gone a bit overboard in its 70th Anniversary year, producing the Defender Works V8.
