Sir Jim Ratcliff , the richest man in the UK plans to produce new Land Rovers in the traditional Defender style. Highly complementary about the potential for Britain to produce a car as well as any other nation, he's advertising jobs for four major roles in the new company...
In order to finally bring myself up to date with modern metal and motoring matters, over a leisurely coffee this morning I took the time to read and absorb the contents of an issue of Autocar from December 1982. I am excited to see that Rover is to introduce the Rover Vitesse, a high performance...
Will they sell as many?

It is now on the Lego website and up for vote as to whether it can go into production or not. It needs 10 000 votes to go into consideration for production by Lego.
I'll leave the link here and if...
are they becoming the new BMW / Audi driver ? Arrogant and thoughtless are the qualities I look for and a lot of the drivers of Range Rovers certainly qualify. Maybe I'm just an old grump but they seem to be driven by very young men with fashionable haircuts or equally young women who never...
