68Land Rover to lodge complaint with China over LandWind's Evoque copycat

Despite its position as a communist state, the People's Republic of China has taken a decidedly laissez-faire attitude towards copyright infringement. It's why, as evidenced in an old episode of Top Gear, you can buy a fake Omega, wear fake Ray-Bans, talk on a fake iPhone and drink at a fake Starbucks. It's also why Chinese automakers so shamelessly rip off the designs of western automobiles (exhibits A, B, C, D and E). Land Rover is the latest automaker to take exception to this practice.

3Range Rover #1 headed to auction block

There's a scene in the Nicholas Cage version of Gone In 60 Seconds, where the lead car thief marches into a Ferrari dealership and laments a newer version of Maranello's finest, claiming he saw three outside his local Starbucks and calling their drivers "self-indulgent wieners," before talking about a 1967 275 GTB/4. The salesman rightly points out that purchasing such a car would make Cage's character a connoisseur. This is Land Rover's equivalent of that 275 – the very first Range Rover,

4eBay Find Of The Day: 1990 Range Rover Great Divide Expedition replica for charity [w/videos]

Way back in 1989, Land Rover launched a major program called the Great Divide Expedition. It pitted members of the media against some of North America's toughest terrain, running along the continental divide that bisects the United States. The media's ally in this attempt? The 1990 Range Rover.

7Land Rover could expand Autobiography Black trim to other Range Rovers

There are two things that set the new flagship Range Rover apart from the rest. For one, it's longer than the already commodious SUV on which it's based. For another, it comes in an exclusive new trim level which Land Rover calls Autobiography Black. Only it may not be exclusive for long.

13Range Rover Sport named Petersen's 4X4 of the Year

Each year since 1983, Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine has named its 4x4 of the Year, and while Jeep has been honored with this award a dozen times, Land Rover has now claimed the distinction two out of the last three years. The Land Rover LR4 was the magazine's top off-road vehicle in 2011, and this year's top off-roader is the all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport.

20Range Rover Sport claims record for crossing Arabia's Empty Quarter

593Land Rover driver caught on video mowing down NYC motorcyclists [UPDATE]

Video has emerged of an altercation between the driver of a Land Rover Range Rover Sport and a large group of motorcyclists. The incident, which occurred yesterday afternoon in New York City, looks to have been started when the Land Rover driver bumped one of the motorcyclists (it's difficult to tell from the video whose fault this was). The incident momentarily brought traffic to a standstill, but escalated anew when the SUV driver ran down a number of riders while attempting to leave the scene

15Jaguar crossover won't be based on Evoque or have off-road chops

Jaguar's long-rumored crossover won't be built on the same platform as the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, says the Australian site Car Advice. The future of the new CUV remains uncertain, but if Jaguar does dip its toes into the SUV/crossover pool, though, the new vehicle will likely be a car-based soft roader, lacking (or perhaps more appropriately, not needing) the off-road-engineered chops inherent in Land Rover's small CUV platform.

10Range Rover Sport and Evoque rumored to get RS versions

264Land Rover Range Rover Success Points To Ford's Hasty Decision To Sell

Land Rover rocking while Lincoln is struggling

14Land Rover LR4 getting facelift and interior refresh

Land Rover is preparing a slight freshening of the its seven-passenger, mid-range LR4 (known outside of North America as the Discovery 4). The LR4/Disco 4 is currently the second oldest model in the Land Rover range, besides the mostly forgotten LR2/Freelander, and while it's still a competent entry, its age is beginning to show.

31Range Rover Evoque convertible reportedly gets go-ahead after all

Despite a report earlier this year stating that a production version of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible was shot down, there have been signs suggesting otherwise recently.
