Land Rover (1948)

Land Rover’s a luxury car maker now, but it all started with two brothers drawing this boxy shape on a Welsh beach. It became the ultimate go-anywhere car, used and abused by farmers and armies for over 60 years. Along with the first Jeep, it also heralded a global love affair with 4x4s, pick-ups and SUVs and the 20 million buying them each year are buying a little piece of Land Rover.Chas Hallett, Autocar
