Hundreds of Land Rovers and their owners were gathered at Bicester Heritage in the Midlands for the very first ‘Land Rover Legends’ event that the organisers say is for ‘connoisseurs, collectors, preservationists, restorers and enthusiasts alike to enjoy and celebrate’ the unique British brand. 

The event took place during Land Rover’s 70th anniversary year, with the carmaker planning its own series of celebrations during 2018 that will culminate with the official unveiling of the all-new Defender, a much-anticipated car the world over. 

Looking back at the history of the model, dozens of early examples were on show in Bicester over the weekend, as well as newer models – you’d hardly consider 1970s Range Rovers as modern, but when compared with late-1940s Series Is they are at the cutting edge. Much newer Freelanders and Discoverys were also on display at the event. 

Organisers say that the show will be back next summer – in the meantime, check out our gallery of images from the event by clicking the next button above.
