Land Rover will mark its 70th anniversary with a series of events and celebrations in 2018, beginning with the restoration of the vehicle that started it all – one of the three pre-production Land Rovers shown at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show launch. This gave the world its first glimpse of the shape that would become instantly recognizable as a Land Rover.
For years the whereabouts of this launch Land Rover was a mystery. The demonstration vehicle from the Amsterdam show was last on the road in the 1960s, after which it spent 20 years in a Welsh field before being bought as a restoration project; it then lay languishing unfinished in a garden. Following its surprise discovery just a few miles outside of Solihull, UK – where the car was first built – the experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic spent months researching in company archives to unravel its ownership history and confirm its provenance.
The team behind the successful Land Rover Series I Reborn programme, which allows customers to own a slice of Land Rover history with meticulously restored Series Is, will now embark on their most challenging project yet: a year-long mission to preserve this historically significant prototype and enable it to be driven again.

The Hyundai Nexo is the first attempt by the company at a mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle that shares the same DNA with the 2018 Tucson compact SUV.
It sits on such a platform that allows for the powertrain and fuel tanks to be better packaged, along with a reduction in weight. This; however, enables more passenger space, better aerodynamics and improved acceleration and efficiency.
Due to Hyundai’s officials, the Nexo has a 20 percent better 0-60 mph time in addition to a top speed that’s 25 percent higher than the old car. Whereas that 0-60 time is down to 9.5 seconds and well off that of the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell’s—it’s, at least, in the ballpark of something like a Toyota Prius. However, that level of performance tolerates for a distance of 370 miles before it needs to be refilled at a hydrogen filling station.
