The Land Rover File, by Eric Dymock has been released by Dove Publishing and is available now to buy online and through selected retailers, priced at £25.00.
The book includes, in one volume, everything there is to know about Land Rovers and Range Rovers, from the first prototypes of 1947, right up to the all-new Freelander 2 which goes on sale in December.
There are hundreds of books available on Land Rover, but none to date have the wealth of readily accessible, accurate and up-to-date information of the Land Rover File.
All of the company's five model lines are described model by model, each one with a descriptive entry and specification, and there is a history of Land Rover's evolution as a company from stop-gap transport solution during wartime Britain to its position now as a company exporting vehicles to more than 140 countries around the world and with four best-sellers in its product range.
Also covered in detail by the Land Rover File is the significant array of military Land Rovers, 'knock-down' assembled models from overseas, fire engines, ambulances, emergency vehicles, cross-country off-roaders and safari adventurers manufactured by the company over the years.
The Land Rover File is an Eric Dymock Motor Book, the seventh in the 'File' series, with additional research by Land Rover experts James Taylor, Roger Crathorne, Graham Robson and Mike Gould. It includes hitherto unacknowledged and even secret prototypes (complete with colour photography where available), known only to Land Rover insiders, and is a good read as well as a comprehensive reference book.Published 28 November 2006
