Range Rover P38

A long awaited all-new Range Rover design was introduced to the world in late 1994. The designers had a tough challenge with the Classic Range Rover being a most difficult act to follow. Since the Range Rover had moved well up-market from its original marketing concept, there was an effort to position the new vehicle as more attractive to the prospective Jaguar, BMW or Mercedes buyer in terms of pavement performance, while retaining class-leading off-road abilities. Most reviews in the automotive press agree they succeeded to a considerable degree, combining conservative design with several innovative engineering achievements.

I once owned a 1995 Range Rover. Looking back, I’m not entirely sure why this happened, but I suspect it may have something to do with a well-known car enthusiast theory about British cars: “they can’t all be that bad.”

The 101 Forward Control or Land Rover 101FC was a vehicle produced by Land Rover for the British Army. It was never made available to the public. The vehicle was primarily produced to meet the Army’s requirement for a gun tractor, and was designed to tow a field gun (the L118 Light Gun) with a ton of ammunition and other equipment in the rear load space, giving it the alternative name of the Land Rover One Tonne. The vehicle was designed to be easily transported by air; the positioning of the 3.5 litre Rover V8 engine beneath and to the rear of the cab eliminates the bonnet at the front, making the vehicle more or less cuboid thus reducing unused space in transport aircraft. Of concern was the payload was rather limited and stability concerns, particularly when crossing an incline.
