Below is an insight to the history of the legend.


Land Rover: the end of a legend

The world's longest-serving vehicle is to roll off the production line for the last time after a continuous run of 67 years. Production of the iconic and globally recognised Land Rover Defender has ceased in December 2015, No vehicle has enjoyed a life as long or as full as the Land Rover.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip used one on tour in 1957. This Series I was custom built for Winston Churchill's 80th birthday

So two years from now you will no longer be able to buy yourself a brand new Land Rover, a proper Land Rover, latterly known as the Defender. The last time there were no Land Rovers, George VI was in the Palace, Attlee in Downing Street, Independent India was just a year old and Harry Truman was about to approve the Marshall Plan.

The Land Rover was created in the shadow of World War II. Inspired by the American Jeeps that had flooded Europe during the war, it was made from aluminium, which was abundant thanks to the British public answering the Ministry of Information’s call to hand over their pots and pans. The Series I, launched in April 1948, came in various shades of military green.

But designer Maurice Wilkes never intended it to be driven exclusively by men in uniform. And so it proved to be. In 65 years it has become as synonymous with farming, adventure, life-guarding, life-saving, rescuing, exploring and endeavour as it has with combat. As British icons go, it’s up there with Paul McCartney, who predates it. No vehicle has enjoyed a life as long or as full as the Land Rover.

The Citroën 2CV born out of a similar imperative in the same year ceased production in 1990. The Volkswagen Beetle predated them both, but didn’t really hit its stride until 1945 and ended its production – on an entirely different continent from where it started – in 2003. Land Rovers have always been built in the same Solihull factory.

There will be another car and it will wear the Defender name, a name it was obliged to take in 1990 only when the proliferation of models it inspired (Range Rover, Discovery…) rendered the name Land Rover something of a communications minefield. Call it a "Landy", however, and folks still know what you mean.

Landys have a habit of going on forever. It’s said that 75 per cent of the two million built so far are still on the road. So chances are there will still be Land Rovers in 2070 when the rest of us are driving hovercars or Teslas. Its real legacy is Land Rover the company, now flagship for a resurgent UK manufacturing sector and selling over 300,000 cars a year. Though you will find precisely nothing in common between a Defender and Range Rover, there would never have been the latter without the former and its overwhelming sense that your car can be something just that little bit more magical than merely a form of a transport.
