For luxury and practicality, there is the Land Rover Range Rover. Also known as a Range Rover, it is a British vehicle that has been around since 1970 and has gained attention worldwide. It is a sports utility vehicle (SUV) that offers not only everyday use on the highway but great off-road handling that few SUVs compare with. This car was originally built for wealthy British farmers seeking that cross between a town-and-country kind of vehicle. The Range Rover came to the US in 1987 and continues to be a best-selling automobile. If you plan to purchase a Range Rover from PDX British or another company, be sure you’re aware of all its versions and the colors available.
There are 5 main kinds of 4×4 Range Rovers. First, there’s the Range Rover Classic. This was produced from 1970 to 1996. Up until 1981, this version had only 3 doors, and the 3-door model was replaced in 1985 by 4 doors. However, the 1991 Charles Spencer King pays tribute to the 3-door model. There were just 200 of these babies made. Come 1992, the Range Rover Classic featured ABS and electronic traction control, things that were ahead of their time. Fun fact: The Range Rover Classic is the only automobile you’ll see in the Louvre Art Gallery in Paris, France.
Next on the list is the Range Rover Pegasus, AKA the Mk 2 Range Rover. This was produced from 1994 to 2002. This was the car that replaced the Classic version entirely in 1995. BMW used to own the Pegasus, so BMW engines were used and wealthier consumers were purchasing this automobile.
Next, from 2002 to 2009, there’s the Range Rover, or Mk 3. Ford was the owner during this period so these puppies had Jaguar engines. The Range Rover introduced suspension that was all-round independent. 4×4 automobiles did not have this suspension before.

Pick among Bournville, Buckingham Blue, Galway Green, Rimini Red, Santorini Black, Stornoway Grey, Zermatt Silver, Ipanema Sand, and Nara Bronze.
2005 and on gave birth to the sports version of this vehicle, called the Range Rover Sport. This guy has increased speed and performance thanks to the supercharged option. As for the color, it comes in solid Alaska White. The paint is not metallic so it is softer and not considered scratch-resistant. Yet if you want metallic paints, you’ll get something more durable.
