REFINED OVER 50 YEARS
The first 4x4 designed to be as good on the road as it was off it, Range Rover continues to set the gold standard to this day.
Equally at home on Place du Casino, Monaco, as it is in the Sahara Desert, we celebrate the pioneering achievements of our ultimate luxury SUV.
THE EVOLUTION OF AN ICON
HALF A MILLION
HALF A MILLION
BORN TO EXPLORE
Range Rover has conquered continents.
DARIEN GAP CROSSING (1972)
In 1972 Range Rover became the first vehicle to complete an 18,000-mile Trans-America expedition – staged by the British Army – which included the perilous crossing of the Darien Gap in South America.
CROSSING THE SAHARA DESERT (1974)
Range Rover’s Darien Gap success was followed in 1974 by the completion of an epic 7,500-mile trek across the Sahara Desert in just 100 days.
LONDON–SYDNEY MARATHON (1977)
A modified Range Rover wins the 4x4 class in the London-Sydney Marathon, a gruelling 18,750-mile event and the longest ever speed-based car rally.
(1979 & 1981)
Range Rover proudly claimed victory in the first ever Paris-Dakar Rally in 1979, shortly followed by another win in 1981. By 1985, the diesel-powered Range Rover ‘Bullet’ breaks 27 speed records in a single year.
DID YOU KNOW?
Four things you never knew about our pioneering SUV.
THE MOVIE STAR
Range Rover has featured in over 1,400 films and TV shows, including five James Bond films: Octopussy (1983), The Living Daylights (1987), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).
In the 1970s, specially-built six wheel Range Rovers were used as fire trucks. Some of them are still in use today.

Soon after its launch in 1970, Range Rover was the first vehicle to be displayed at the Louvre in Paris as an ‘Exemplary work of Industrial Design’.

Global stars to have owned Range Rover include Her Majesty the Queen, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, basketball legend Michael Jordan and Hollywood royalty Tom Cruise.
