November 11, 2014

Today’s Tuesday which means one thing at the Car Loan Warehouse – Top 5 Tuesdays! And you’re in luck – this week’s is one of the biggest and best we’ve done yet. This week we’ll be looking at the all-important Land Rover top 5 – so strap yourself in.

Maurice Wilks was the genius behind the original design of the first Land Rover in 1947. At the time, he was Chief Designer for the car company ‘Rover’. He took the inspiration from a World War 2 American army Jeep, making it clear from the start that he had a vision for all terrain type vehicles. The first Land Rover prototype was nicknamed ‘Centre Steer’ and was built on a Jeep Chassis and Axles.
