The Land Rover is certainly the best known off road vehicle which has been around for at least 50 years. Conceived in the late 1940s for both military and civil use, this vehicle has remained virtually unchanged in appearance while materials employed in its construction and technology have evolved over time. Thanks to its robust construction and reliability the Land Rover is considered to be the best 4 x 4 ever designed. It is currently available in numerous configurations with short and long chassis with a variety of options and is used by many armies worldwide. Scores of civilian users also fruitfully employ it in the tranquil countrysides of Europe and Africa.
