With the need for a sub-freelander obvious, Land rover has commissioned a new LR2. This car should be modern, yet use Land Rover Design Cues.<p><IMG SRC="http://images.securedwebform.com/stock/300/land%20rover/discovery/2005/5od-4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><I>Contest will close on 2nd of October.</I><p><B>Good Luck</B>

Alright, I'll take the plunge first...<p>Presenting the 2008 Land Rover LR-X. Land Rover's newest addition combines almost 60 years of legendary offroad prowess and prestige with the sportiness, economy, and accessibility to entice a new generation of drivers.<p>Despite being the marque's entry-level offering, the LR-X possesses myriad unique amenities and is every bit as off-road capable as a Land Rover should be. The long list of standard features caters to younger, more active buyers, and includes:<p>- First aid kit and an expedition-rated Land Rover/North FaceĀ <I>Mountain 25</I> 2-person tent stowed in a dedicated compartment beneath the rear load floor. <br>- Xenon high-intensity discharge spotlights mounted in the side mirrors, which can be detached to function as fully-waterproof flashlights.<br>- An optional Garmin-Land Rover navigation system which, like the flashlights, may be removed and operated as a portable GPS.<br>- Optional emergency locator beacon for back country adventures<br>- Multipurpose two-tiered load floor, with compartments which may be used as coolers and drained, if needed. <br>- Various other features and options available to suit consumers' needs, however extreme.<p>The LR-X will come equipped with a variety of gasoline and diesel-powered engines, topping out with the 3.2L I-6 and 2.2L TD4 motors from the Freelander 2. Moreover, the LR-X will offer a version of Land Rover's trademark "Terrain Response" adaptive 4WD, making the LR-X a true class leader both on and off the road.<p>Outside, the beefy exterior represents an edgier direction for LR while maintaining the brand's essence. The front is instantly recognizable, with a perforated grille like that on the Range Rover Sport, as well as dual round foglamps and a hefty steel skid plate. The headlamps are halogen projector beams standard, with the option of LED low-beam/HID high-beam combination lamps, a first for Land Rover. The LR-X is designed to provide an optimal balance of ground clearance and handling; the short overhangs allow for steep approach and departure angles. Rearward, the design is less traditional, with a removable hard top (also available in canvas, as shown) which, when removed, reveals a set of brushed steel rollover hoops (a la Jeep Hurricane). An optional rear-mounted full-sized spare (a space-saver, mounted beneath the car, is standard) houses a small titanium multipurpose tool kit beneath its body-color kevlar cover.<p>Backed by the Land Rover pedigree and endless options for customization, the LR-X promises to be a worthy addition to the Land Rover line. More details and pricing will be announced closer to launch.<p><IMG SRC="http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/8363/lrxdf3.jpg" BORDER="0">

It's an awesome idea, Domino, with the customization and everything. The right car for the market class, but some of the things sound a bit too expensive for an entry level vehicle haha<p>Designwise, I feel like I'm looking at a couple of separate cares melded into one. For example, the front grille and bumper look a bit bland, but the headlamps are crazy, fancy units. The upright, bland bumper and grille doesn'tmatch the sporty, fast nature of the rest of the car either. Also, the side is straight and flat, but the rear is sloping and fast-back styled. Doesn't really seem to.. match. Adding to the mismatch illusion, there's a lot of lines going on in the front, and espeically the leading edge of the vent makes the car look... mismatched.<p>I think the render is stunning. Beautiful wheels too, looks a bit too large and fragile for heavy duty offroading but beautiful nonetheless.

Nice design Domino. But some parts are just too 'bland' and dont match the rest of the car.<br>I think as Knich said, some parts of the equipment list is too 'high-end' for a entry level model.<br>But anyhow, very well done. Mine should be coming later this week.

Looks like a nice alternative to a Mitsubishi Pajero Mini. Agreed with Mil. The rear vent has got to go and rear wheel is a bit off. Also, is it me, but your drawings seem to get a bit more cartoonish with each sketch. Good job.

DoMiNo, awesome work. Not overly Landroverish, in fact, swap the grill and you could have any other car. But that doesn't mean it's not an impressive entry. I just love the surfacing you do on your drawings; you really get a feel for the materials and shapes. If anything, I don't love the rims, but that's just me. I love the headlamp design too.<p>mr.burns, nice sketches, but it's a little too small, and the lines don't really flow. The rear is also unpropottionate to the front, but there's something in that sketch that I just looove.<p><br>Good work both of you! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

The Land Rover LR-1.<p>Aimed squarely at the youth market, the Land Rover LR-1 slots underneath the Freelander/LR-2 as a true entry-level vehicle for Land Rover. As an icon for the new generation of car buyers, the LR-1 boasts modern, cutting edge design with the same, immediately recognizeable Land Rover design traits. Designs such as the A-pillar/front-fender piece, the greenhouse, the integrated turn signals, and the billowing sides with hidden door handles lend themselves to an extraordinarily modern and forward-thinking vehicle. At front, the usual Land Rover grille is made bold and forward, integrated into a larger, shield grille underneath (The supercharged version gets an aluminum mesh grille). The grille also integrates the front bumper, as the bottom bar of the three-bar grille doubles as a bumper seamlessly. Likewise, the headlamps are a modern interpretation of the Land Rover design theme: two round lamps connected by futuristic-looking high beams and indicator blinkers (smoked on the supercharged version). The windshield sweeps seamlessly to the top, which in addition to the normal all-steel roof, gets a convertible canvas roof option, as well as an all-glass option.<p>At back the futurism is not taken lightly. The centerpiece of the design is the pillarless rear window, which sweeps all the way from the B-pillars to the rear hatch and back around. This is accomplished with the LR-1's very unique greenhouse design; strategically placed B-pillar with extra support in addition to a strong A-pillar allows for a 180-degree view out the rear. This in addition to the available all-glass roof puts the passengers and drivers of the LR-1 one with the outside nature while off-roading in the jungle or cruising in style down the trendiest street. At back, taillamps that echo the headlamps and a license plate holder that echoes the billowing sides of the car round out the LR-1 in harmony.<p>The LR-1 is truly a new-age Land Rover for the new age of consumers.<p> <IMG SRC="http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/8012/img056wk6.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Please please comment! I tried a new coloring and drawing technique. It may not look too different but it is; feedback please!

impressive entries from everyone!! and peugeot_206, you have improved immensely. the seats are still too big, and the wheels need improvement, as AUDIR8 says, but it looks awful good. not much like a landrover though. knihc2008, that's a pretty nice design! i really like the rear. i better get my entry in!

Nurburgring
09-29-2006, 06:51 PM
knihc.again a very nice entry. I like those design features that you've highlighted. Very elegant yet offers the true off-roader's look. But at a point where it might of went a bit too far and ended up looking more like a Jeep concept. The front is the majority. It has the Land Rover smell to it but it has more of a Jeep DNA to it. Maybe tilting the rear window area just a bit and rounding off the wheel arch should do it. 9/10

<B>(3) knihc2008</B> - The most forward-thinking of the concepts. In terms of taking Land Rover style into the future, the grille and headlamp treatments are particularly cool. Plus, the idea of the A-pillar curving forward and continuing on as the front fender--while admittedly weird at first--has totally grown on me! Wicked.<p><B>(3) superfresa</B> - the most utilitarian of the concepts. It really takes Land Rover back to its roots by providing more of a rugged, no-frills appeal. The exposed hinges are a great touch. This thing looks like it could really take a beating, the way an LR always should, and it brings the marque downmarket in a totally feasible way.<p><B>(2) Mr. Burns</B> - I almost did something quite similar. There are places I think you could have added more detail or drama, but the concept is spot on and I especially like the front. Nice car, it would fit into the lineup well.<p><b>(2) napoleondyna </B> - The sportiest of them all. It's a risky approach... as it goes even further than the RRS in decreasing ground clearance and compromising LR's off-road ability for the sake of style, but I think it works. Thr front is tough, and the other cues--the side vent, the deep LR3-like groove down the side--make it a distinctly Land Rover take on the sporty SUV.
