Custom Land Rover Lr1 (1996) - 6' Lift, Winch, All (built In Adventure Road Tp) on 2040-cars
Anchorage, Alaska, United States
Mechanically sound, but it's a 17 year old SUV and has some quirks as you'd expect, mostly everything is in great order.
There is a lot into it, and I am sure this list is not complete. Why am I selling? I have another off road V8 truck.
On Oct-05-13 at 10:53:21 PDT, seller added the following information:Two of the photos shown were taken before the rhino lining, roof rack and LED lighting was added. Those photos were taken in 2011 near Knik glacier Alaska. My LR 1 is NOT a show truck. It's built to drive the Darien Gap, the Rubicon, Moab, the Trans-Am trail or the PanAmerican Hwy. So yes, It has been driven off road in Alaska, big island of Hawaii and across the west from the dealership that sold it in Colorado. I have changed all the fluids and cleaned the filters after every trip and I can guarantee the engine has never been hydro-shocked and the ECM/Computer has never been flooded. The winning bidder will receive the original sales paperwork and much of the maintenance and repair history.

Ford's J Mays feels vindicated by Fusion receptionTue, 25 Sep 2012
It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
Jaguar Land Rover opens first overseas factory in ChinaWed, 22 Oct 2014
Anyone who's a car fan knows that Jaguar and Land Rover cars and trucks all come from the UK. And while we don't doubt that will remain true for the most part, it won't be an absolute truth for long, as the British automaker has just opened its first factory overseas.
Its new plant in Changshu, China, is the result of a $1.8-billion joint venture between JLR and local automaker Chery. It covers some 4.3-million square feet and will, once at peak capacity, produce 130,000 units specifically for the Chinese market, where JLR sells over 100,000 vehicles each year to make it the company's single largest market worldwide.
Production at what's officially known as the Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Company will start with the Evoque, of which one in five globally are currently sold in China. Production will eventually encompass three models. We already know that the Discovery Sport will be next, but the third model line has yet to be announced. JLR has confirmed, however, that the Changshu plant will produce unique models and derivatives specifically for the Chinese market, so we wouldn't be surprised to see a long-wheelbase version of the forthcoming XE or next-generation XF assembled there to satisfy local tastes.
Jaguar Land Rover may build factory in Saudi ArabiaTue, 11 Dec 2012
The Middle East is one of the fastest-growing markets for Land Rover, so it makes sense that the automaker is looking to set up shop in the region. According to Automotive News, Jaguar Land Rover is in talks with the people of Saudi Arabia to build a factory in the country at an expected initial cost of $1.2 billion. Still in the early stage of talks, the proposed facility could start up by 2017 using locally sourced materials such as steel and aluminum.
Such an arrangement could be beneficial for both entities as Saudi Arabia looks to diversify its oil-reliant economy and Land Rover could get local production capacity of around 50,000 units. The report also says that the agreement talks about the possibility for Jaguar models to be built at the same plant further down the road.
This won't be the first vehicle produced in Saudi Arabia - that honor goes to the KSU Gazal-1 - but it will be the first from a major global automaker.
