GEAR | 1970 Range Rover



Photos via Net Car Show.

1970 was Range Rover's deb year. Throughout the year the car was exhibited at the Louvre, as an “outstanding piece of modern sculpture”. According to John Sweeny at Automobiles Deluxe, the directors of the Louvre intimated that the design was such that either to add or to take anything away from it would be to its detriment. With praise like that, it's not surprising that the first generation Range Rover was in production for some 26 years. The same design which was current in 1970 managed to remain relevant until 1996 when the body type finally changed, a true rarity in the car world.

Personally, I still think the Range Rover Classic looks relevant and magnificent.

I was JUST searching last week for this similar older model RR. I really love this one. I've never seen this blue–amazing. I've always coveted the hunter green color. Great find:)

i keep (wishfully) hoping they will do a sort of retrospective release of this design soon...... so elegantly functional.

Love the design. But Tomboy Style don't buy one of these since the mileage is a drag and also it's tough to park.

This was one of their best designs. And the color is to die for.

Nothing says adventure to me like catching a glimpse of a classic RR. It just exudes rugged trailblazing!

I've wanted one since owning a red plastic version for my Sindy/Barbie dolls. Although I've tried and can't park the things!!!

Yes, the Range Rover Classic is revolutionary. The style is so outstanding that it managed to stay in production for decades. This is genius because people find it significant even years after its first release, which is not a usual happening. Car evolution is non-stop due to ever-changing and improving demands and technologies. But the Range Rover Classic was able to cope as it is, no remodel done.
