Today, the Range Rover is a legend. The original design lasted in production for more than a quarter of a century, a second-generation model joined it in 1994, the third generation was announced at the end of 2001, and a fourth generation arrived in 2012. Enthusiasts and collectors alike recognise the importance of the vehicle, whose key attributes have been widely copied and as a result there is strong interest in the very first Range Rovers. It is those very first Range Rovers which are the subject of this book. Its aim is to record the story of the earliest vehicles before it becomes lost in the mists of legend and distorted by commercial misrepresentation. It looks at three distinct groups of vehicles. These are the Engineering Prototypes (of which there were seven), the Pre-Production Vehicles (of which there were 28, most registered in the YVB-H series), and the Press Launch Vehicles (of which there were 20, all registered in the NXC-H series). The total comes to slightly more than 50 vehicles. With 160 illustrations and 160 pages.
