Default In Pictures - Motor Expo @ Canary Wharf, London

As I work out of Canary Wharf in London, it was a golden opportunity to see the Motor Expo, which is held here every year. Sorry, no commentary... just posting the pictures for everyone to enjoy. Starting out with a few selected photos

The RHS Land Rover with the combination stack switches with different orientation, wipers on right and lights on left.
Is this the way in British cars. I thought that this configuration is only in LHD European and American Cars.
Can AarRmm or Sem 80-80 throw some more light on this.

This is a matter discussed to death in this forum, but as @rajeev k pointed out am surprised that an indigenous British car has LHD configuration.
If it was any other other European manufacturer would have had the excuse, but on this? Can't have any valid excuses.
BTW, wonder when Tata brings the Defender in India, (am an LC fan), stil it would be suited to India.

@Rajeev - I could be wrong but I do believe this combination is for all cars in the UK.

In which case whole of Europe may be following this config while in Asian countries it is the other way round.
It would be interesting to know how it is in Chinese cars.

The most interesting part (for me) was the option to try out the Range Rover over the various obstacles created to show-cause the off-roading capabilities of this vehicle. Posting a set of pictures of this
