CHATTING ABOUT OLDER Land Rovers with a fellow classic car nut recently, I asked how they were seen by buyers more used to bidding for unpronounceable Italian sports cars. ‘Everyone has at least one Land Rover in them,’ was his reply. And he’s right. It’s no surprise that values of the best (or most recently dragged out of a barn) classic Land Rovers are rocketing. They’re cool. So, you really should have one as a second, or third, or fourth... Land Rover, shouldn’t you? Whether it’s for a trundle to the pub, for using as a tow vehicle for a classic racer or trialler, or just an excuse to spend even more time up to your elbows in garage heaven, it makes a lot of sense to get your hands on…

heavy metal in tin county

Cornwall is a place of contrasts. In the spring sunshine children play innocently, having fun on golden, sandy beaches while above them on the moors long-abandoned tin mines stand guard. These are a reminder that in the dark, industrial past of the 18th and 19th centuries, workers toiled deep underground in tunnels that stretch for mile after mile. All of which means it’s entirely appropriate that this Ninety was created in Cornwall, because beneath its innocent exterior, it too hides a dark, industrial secret – a 6.5-litre General Motors V8 diesel. My long trip to the westernmost tip of England soon starts to seem worthwhile as we drive along the sandy shoreline, skimming the fringe of the Atlantic. I’m sitting comfortably at the wheel of the thundering V8, and everything feels right…

final countdown for defender is on

There’s now less than one month to go before the Defender goes off sale in the UK, so if you want one built to your spec, you’d better get in quick. Although production ends at Solihull in December, LRO understands last orders will be on June 26, so the sequence of build slots can be allocated. Owners in the European Union will then have until the end of August 2016 to register their Defender for the road. Unsurprisingly, demand for the Defender is booming, with Land Rover selling 23 per cent more in April than the same month last year. And, Defender production has been ramped-up by more than 60 per cent to keep on top of demand. Of the three 2015 Limited Editions (above), the initial allocation of Heritage models (on…
