Land Rover is well known for its four-wheel-drive vehicles now owned by India's Tata Motors since 2008. Land Rover is regarded as a British icon, and was granted a Royal Warrant by King George VI in 1951.
The design for the original Land Rover vehicle was started in 1947 by Maurice Wilks, chief designer at the Rover Company, on his farm in Newborough, Anglesey, working in conjunction with his brother Spencer who was the Managing Director of Rover. The prototype was built on Jeep chassis, which may have influenced the design of the original and axles with its steering wheel located in the centre, hence its Centre Steer nickname.
The early choice of colour was dictated by military surplus supplies of aircraft cockpit paint, which early vehicles only came in various shades of light green; all models until recently feature sturdy box section ladder-frame chassis.
Originally used by the Rover Company for its Land Rover Series launched in 1948, Land Rover was developed into a brand encompassing a range of four-wheel-drive models, including the Defender, Discovery, Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Land Rovers are currently assembled in the company's Halewood and Solihull plants, with research and development taking place at the Gaydon and Whitley engineering centres. Land Rover sold 194,000 vehicles worldwide in 2009.
