Land Rover: 60 Years of Adventure by Nick Dimbleby
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The 60th anniversary of Land Rover occurs in 2008. The original Series 1 Land Rover was unveiled in 1948 and the utilitarian Defender models are still instantly recognisable as relatives of the original. The Land Rover range has also expanded over the years to elevate the Solihull marque to a premium brand in the automotive market place, the latest Range Rover models providing palatial luxury while still providing unbeatable off-road performance. This beautifully produced book tells the full story of all Land Rover models through a wealth of stunning colour images, many previously unpublished.
