December 2020 Issue

December 2020 Issue of LRO magazine

by Lewis Plumb |

Our December 2020 issue spans the full range of Land Rover innovation, featuring two Green Ovals at the cutting edge – yet decades apart. One is the new Defender 90, on British soil and tested for the very first time.

Another is a bizarre amphibious prototype that Solihull engineers toyed with in the 1950s. Can it really float? We had to find out!
