Some nice coverage & history UK GQ for October:
Great stuff on that original Range Rover, just to correct something he wrote:
Its design signatures included a "floating roof" on top of black-painted pillars, and a castellated clam-shell bonnet; these remain in place today.
That full “floating roof” didn’t actually show up until, 1982, it wasn’t even until 1974 that they blacked out the d-pillar. And even in the picture they show in the article, that roof ain’t floating. So while it is a quintessential Range Rover design cue, they didn’t actually add it to the vehicle until it was almost a teenager.
You can see them here in time progression:
