WoW. What a brilliant way to celebrate the anniversary. Totally concentrated on line up & brand heritage, no unnecessary drama & rock shows. Thanks for sharing.

BTW, while watching the video I observed that the info system lcd on your LR was showing real time info of all wheels movement, including tilt, turns & articulation.
Also, The best thing was the auto locking differentials. It seemed that the central as well as front & rear differentials were locking depending on the terrain needs.

OR am I missing some buttons being pressed?

TIA

Glad that you noticed it. No its all automatic and terrain response thingie doing its job. No manual interventions were being provided apart from accelerator, brakes and steering

In the meanwhile an LWB version of the RR is in the works;

The LWB adds around 150mm (5.9 inches) to the regular Range Rover & pushing the overall length to over 5.15 meters

Today I was watching the movie The Queen. I was rather stunned by a scene, where Queen Elizabeth II is offroading in the Land Rover and breaks the prop shaft while crossing the river. I had to post it here.



She is a professionally trained mechanic too.
