High Speed – July 20, 2009: Range Rover 2010

Although I don’t understand a word they’re saying – this is the longest Range Rover review I’ve ever seen and has some great shots of the 2010

Anyone want to check out the Solihull factory?

Click on that image and you can really get a good look around the factory grounds and see all the little Land Rovers getting ready for delivery.  You can see the Jungle Course & the Land Rover Experience Center, along with its track – neat thing to check out for the enthusiast.

Here’s a shot of the LRX & a real original Series 1, outside the building shown above:HUE and LRX at Solihull

For anyone interested, Land Rover puts out this shot layout every year with the bottom white banner.  I already have the photo in the 2010 album, but didn’t have the one with the blurb – so for anyone collecting, here it is:

Pics to Post – Fire & Ice Defender Limited Editions

Although we’ll never see these here in the US – here are some pics, I forgot to post last month of the new Fire & Ice Defenders.  They are actually only available  in the following markets:



Land Rover Launches Exciting ‘Fire & Ice’ Defender Limited Editions

Gaydon, Warwickshire, 09 June 2009 – Land Rover is introducing two exciting new limited edition models of the iconic Defender 4×4 – the Defender Fire and Defender Ice.

Inspired by the world’s most challenging landscapes – where Defenders have earned their reputation for rugged dependability – the Fire & Ice models blend classic Land Rover functionality with a stunning new style.

The limited editions feature striking two-tone colour schemes. Defender Fire combines a scorching metallic ‘Vesuvius’ orange with metallic ‘Santorini’ black roof, bonnet, centre grille and wheel arches. Defender Ice contrasts the cooler shade of ‘Alaska’ white with the same bold black panels.

The exteriors are finished off with some eye-catching details including ‘diamond turned’ five spoke alloy wheels, black side runners, LED rear lamps with clear lenses, and a unique front light treatment.

Inside the Fire & Ice models, the cabins feature superior materials and special interior treatments to complement the style and functionality of the exterior. The seats combine black leather borders with attractive grey Alcantara centre panels, and head restraints with an embossed Land Rover logo.

Splashes of bold colour bring added life to the interior design. The centre switch panels use the same orange or white paint finish as the exterior, while contrast stitching on the steering wheel, seats, centre cubby box and carpet mats is coordinated to match.

For that extra degree of personalisation, a range of tough optional accessories is available including an A-frame protection bar, a raised air intake, a ribbed aluminium undershield, aluminium wing top protectors and a chequer plate protection kit in black, a luggage rack or a roof sports bar system.
