01 DESIGN TRAVEL TECHNOLOGY INSIGHT NEWS N A V I G A T O R DESIGN MODERN EXPLORERS In December 1971, two Range Rover crews set out on a formidable 18,000-mile journey across the Americas that would become part of Land Rover history. Departing from Anchorage in Alaska and ending their journey at the most southerly point in Argentina, the now iconic British Trans- Americas Expedition was led by British officer, explorer and author Colonel John Nicholas Blashford-Snell, who steered his two first-generation Range Rover vehicles across the continents. Halfway down, they faced the Darién Gap, a large swathe of undeveloped swampland and rainforest connecting the two Americas at the border between Panama and Colombia. Thanks to Blashford-Snell’s legendary grit and the two Range Rover vehicles’ peerless capabilities, the expedition made it across to become the first vehicle-based expedition to traverse both American continents through the Darién Gap. Fast-forward to 2017, and this classic Land Rover moment now lives again, thanks to the 2017 Land Rover Heritage Collection: a premium range of clothing, gifts and accessories inspired by that all-conquering spirit of perseverance. In it you’ll see the inspiration from the original Range Rover vehicles’ navy and gold finish, while technical graphics and route map designs help bring the legend of the British Trans- Americas Expedition back to life.
