Land Rover Special

Every vehicle is special. Not everybody gets the chance to drive one, so it is of utmost importance that when you get the chance, go for the best! While vehicles cost a little more than what you could be spending in commuting, there are things that you can do to make your vehicle purchases worthwhile. If it is something that you consider to be a need, rather than just merely a want, then go for a car manufacturer with a proven track record-- one who has lived up to its name for a long time, and one that is trusted in the type of vehicle you want to purchase. Take for example if you are thinking about getting a jeep, or SUV? Land Rover Specials are truly one of your best choices.

 

What Makes It So Special?

 

It has a colorful history.

Unlike other famous car manufacturers, Land Rover as a company has only existed since 1978. It used to be a product line of the Rover Company which was in time absorbed into the Rover-Triumph division of the British Leyland Motor Corporation after the takeover of the Leyland Motor Corporation in 1967.

 

The design is patterned after a jeep during the Second World War.

The main implication of this is that the Land Rover is sure to be very compact and it can definitely stand the test of the roads. It is perfect for adventure and for family use as well.

 

Its engines have evolved dramatically through the years.

 

In 1948, the first Land Rover units used the inlet-over-exhaust petrol engines or semi side-valve, in both the four- and six-cylinder variants of which the cubic capacity of the first models was 1,600 cc.

 

In 1957, four-cylinder overhead-valve engines, which ran in both petrol and diesel were first seen on the roads, at the near end of the Series One production.

 

Several years after, the engines installed were 300 TDi turbo-diesel-- which still remains in production today for some overseas markets.

 

In 1997, the Petrol, inlet-over-exhaust Series I engine was carried over for the first few months of Series II production.

 

The Name Land Rover Connotes Royalty In The Car Industry.

Land Rover has been in the industry for decades and it has proven to be one of the most-powered vehicles in the world. It is not only coveted by the very important persons in the world, it has usage in the military as well-- thereby stamping its stake in the industry. It is also known for Power take-off which enables farm machinery and many other items to be run with the vehicle stationary.

 

It Is Highly Competitive.

The Highly modified Land Rovers have competed in the Dakar Rally and has won the Macmillan 4x4 UK Challenge almost every year. On top of this, it is also the vehicle used for the Camel Trophy. With regards to road safety, it is regarded as one of the safest cars on roads measured by chance of death in two-car injury accidents. Land Rover's Defender drivers are said to have a 1% chance of being killed or seriously injured and a 33% chance of sustaining any kind of injury on the road.
