Land Rover is a luxury car brand that specialises in four-wheel-drive vehicles, owned by British multinational car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover, which has been owned by India's Tata Motors since 2008. The Land Rover is regarded as a British icon, and was granted a Royal Warrant by King George VI in 1951.
In 1967, the first Range Rover prototype was built (number plate SYE 157F), with the classic Range Rover shape discernible, but with a different front grille and headlight configuration. The design of the Range Rover was finalised in 1969.
Tata Motors is now in the luxury car and truck business—finally—with a signed agreement to buy the Ford Motor Company’s Jaguar and Land Rover brands for $2.3 billion.
Alongside the Slovakia announcement, Jaguar said it will invest millions in a revamp of Solihull, where the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models will be built.
He also owns a range of SUVs but is seen mostly in his Range Rover Autobiography. It is the top-of-the-line variant of the Range Rover and costs more than Rs. 2 crore in India. The extended wheelbase version owned by Amitabh Bachchan gives acres of rear seat space, which is utilised quite well by the tall actor.
Who owns the very first Land Rover? Exactly 70 years since JUE 477 – the first ever production Land Rover – rolled off the Solihull production line, INEOS Automotive has been confirmed as the new owner, and there's a sympathetic restoration in the works!
