    land rover also claims that 75% of their vehicles are still on the road...gimmee a break. every other vehicle would be a land rover if that were true. maybe they mean the 75% of parts that have fallen off are still on the road

    I agree to you the true Land Rover are the classic ones. The classics are built for off road

    sorry but the claim that the first vehicle seen by 1/3 of the worlds population is totally false...jeep in WWII was the first. 600,000 jeeps were produced and 300,000 were abandoned throughout the world after the war. by the time land rovers were used outside of england, jeep had already seen the world in the war, and then the abandoned and surplus jeeps were used by tens of thousands of people all across the world for their own personal use

    Moun Bakko dude, jeep was immediately produced by the hundreds of thousands and has been everywhere. Jeep is has been a hit from day one and the wrangler sold over 240,000 vehicles in the USA last year alone. by the way, how defender's were produced in total and how many were sold last year

    ... when you say, throughout the world, does that include Africa and South America?... it is not just numbers produced... to many people... the first automobile we saw and rode in... that is what is meant by 1/3... like it or not... be it as you say, it was not transportation for people of those places you mention ... so stop being indignant... this not a comparison.

    It's ironic that the highly regarded body design of the original range rover started as merely something to cloak the prototype chassis until Leyland suggested they keep it for production models by just upgrading the front and back
