If you've ever owned a Land Rover or Range Rover – and we've owned both – you know that more than a mere means of transportation it's the heady combination of luxury and adventure that sets the marque's superlative SUV's apart from the crowd. And while some will never venture off road in their extremely capable vehicles, others will cross the globe and literally go where no man has driven before.
For a vicarious thrill in that department or just as a means of plotting your own excellent excursion pick up a copy of Land Rover Experience Tour, being published in February by German luxury publisher teNeues and now available for pre-order on Amazon.
For 70 years, the Land Rover brand has stood for "crossing borders, expanding horizons, and discovering unchartered terrain," as the book notes, doing so with both British capability and signature panache. And for 12 years running the marque has hosted the Land Rover Experience Tour, wherein six winning participants, selected from thousands of applicants, tackle a challenging and breathtaking route showcasing both the vehicles' prowess and the world's equally inspiring landscapes.
The book features the 2017 version of the epic event, which took place in Peru, as well as past excursions, with incredible photographs and evocative text to make you feel like you are riding shotgun. The routes covered include Jordan, Malaysia, Bolivia, Iceland, Australia, Namibia, Scotland, Guatemala, Argentina, and the legendary Silk Route, while vehicles ranging from the new Discovery to the Evoque and of course the iconic Defender strut their stuff.
Prepare to be inspired to the point where reading the book may even prompt a visit to your local Land Rover dealership. But that's definitely a good thing....
