Land Rover Designer Resumés have some interesting items

I was searching on some of the Land Rover Project Code Names and I found a few interesting pages.  It seems the UK based designers are posting their current projects in their online resumés.

Here’s Rob M’s page: http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/rob-mcnally/18/335/79a

Listing the following projects:

The one that really caught my eye is the L538 Door Casings, L538 is the forthcoming Range Rover LRX.  The Freel2.com board did a search on the LRX mule’s number plate and it came back with:

The next page is actually from a site where people can freelance their skills:

This person has done a lot of work for Aston Martin & Bentley – they list the specific items.  The latest project is listed below:

WARWICKSHIRE (Oct 2007 & ongoing)

CAD ENGINEER – EXTERIOR TRIM – CATIA V5
LANDROVER L538 / L486
Initial design and feasibility studies for the following components: door claddings, rear spoiler, rear finisher, front and rear bumper cover, fender vents. Parametric modeling in Catia V5 to create fully modifiable master CAD models. Use of TCE to save and access data and create product structures. Liaison with styling, CAE and suppliers to mature designs.

So there again, we see the L538, but now we get the L486 listed too.  The L486 is still a bit of a mystery – we hear it’s a 7-seater, but beyond that I’m not sure – could be a larger Freelander or a larger Range Rover LRX, not sure where it’s going to fit in – unless they drop the LR4?
