This was the best era for Range Rovers.
It was before they became an obligatory status symbol in cities and suburbs, and the design was softened up so as to appeal to people who only drove on well-paved roads and required “pearlescent seashell” or “Viennese tungsten” paintwork.
The Discovery (I and II) did a good job of picking up where the Range Rover eventually left off, but they too were gradually dulled and replaced by the Star Wars sequel trilogy of Land Rovers: the LR3.
Same thing happened to Jaguar, which is a shame.
I hope to someday own a Range Rover of this approximate color and vintage, and a Jaguar XJR or Vanden Plas sedan from sometime before 2005.
