Onelife - April 2018

 

Land Rover’s Onelife magazine showcases stories from around the world that celebrate inner strength and the drive to go Above and Beyond

This special issue of Onelife marks Land Rover’s 70th anniversary – a celebration of unparalleled achievement and pioneering innovation. We bring you the incredible story of how we reunited an original 1948 car with its former owners, as well as looking back at Land Rover vehicles’ most intrepid expeditions around the globe.
Chief Design Officer Gerry McGovern gives an insight into his diverse range of inspirations, and we head to China for a behind-the-scenes look at the Dragon Challenge, one of the most daring feats ever accomplished
in a Land Rover.
