Land Rover invented the premium/luxury SUV class in 1970 with the original Range Rover. This model has withstood the test of time and has been further refined over the years, becoming a true motoring icon and inspiring generations of high-riding enthusiasts.
The first generation Range Rover stayed in production until 1996, and two years before, its successor came out, which had a much shorter lifespan. The British auto brand pulled the plug on it in 2001 to replace it with the third generation, which some say is one of the best-looking Range Rovers ever made.

Eleven years later, Land Rover released the fourth generation, which featured a softer design, albeit improved everything, and the latest dates back to 2022, as that's when production commenced at the Solihull factory in the United Kingdom. The modern-day Range Rover is basically an evolution of its predecessor.

It guns for the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan in its top specification, yet lesser models have the BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS in their sights. Related to the smaller Range Rover Sport, the latest Range Rover comes with an assortment of gasoline, diesel, and partially electrified powertrains, and since its introduction two years ago, it has proved its worth numerous times.

Reliability issues aside, it is one of the best models in its class, and despite going all soft as far as the exterior design is concerned, it can still cope with some arduous tracks. Nevertheless, the Range Rover needs some proper off-road tires on its feet, a lift kit, and a few other bits and bobs to venture off the lit path, and once there, it will handle better than most of its rivals.

Mind you, this story is not about a Range Rover being driven like crazy away from the comfort of smooth tarmac like that copy we wrote about last summer. Quite the opposite, in fact, as it revolves around a very special copy that we recently came across on social media. Images of it were released by velosdesignwerks on Instagram a few hours ago, and we absolutely love the aftermarket touch.

The first thing that stands out is the murdered-out design. It wears black on the entire body with no chrome touches providing contrast. Those large alloys with a multi-spoke pattern fit the styling like a glove, and they fit under the arches even with the lowered ground clearance. The privacy windows prevent us from spotting the cockpit, yet we're confident the owner hasn't gone for a lively upholstery, as they have probably kept it simple and elegant.

This is one of the best-looking new-gen Range Rovers we have seen over the last two years, and we're certain you agree. So, do you?
