N A V I G A T O R THE RANGE ROVER STORY 07 INSIGHT The Range Rover has been a mainstay on our roads ever since the first pre-production vehicles were built in 1967, and there’s now an exhibition at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull manufacturing plant – where Range Rover vehicles have been manufactured since 1970 – that charts the inexorable rise of a uniquely British icon. ‘The Range Rover Story’ exhibition uncovers previously unseen artifacts and materials that track the five decades of the Range Rover from the pioneering car for all reasons to the definitive luxury SUV it is today. From the earliest sketches and a full-sized prototype replica crafted out of clay, to the modern day, cutting-edge Range Rover Velar (the first all-new Range Rover to be revealed since the Evoque in 2010), the exhibition illustrates the evolution of a one-of-a-kind vehicle. Visitors who want something more can also take a threehour manufacturing tour through the Solihull factory where the iconic cars are made. The tour further documents the mix of highly skilled manufacturing workers and state-of-the-art robots that is required to build a 2017 Range Rover, right down to the last nut and bolt. Accompanied by your own expert guide, the tour takes guests around the aluminum-intensive architecture body shop and final assembly sectors, where the latest model in the Range Rover family comes together. The exhibition and manufacturing tour – which has been curated with the help of long-serving staff members at the Solihull plant, some of whom have worked on Range Rover vehicles since the first prototype – documents the extensive, rich heritage of the brand with the cutting-edge technology that makes its manufacture possible and exciting today.
