First diesel Range Rover
Range Rover was one of the first cars class "lux" in the world, which sets the diesel engine. It was originally planned that Land Rover have developed their own diesel V8 engine based on the petrol aluminum V8. Development (program codenamed Iceberg) was conducted in conjunction with experts in the field of diesel technology company Perkins and was to be completed at the beginning of the creation of the engine 80. The project eventually mothballed when costs rose sharply.
Instead, Land Rover bought the engine from Italian company VM Diesel Specialists. This 2.4-liter engine does not have outstanding power - acceleration to 60 miles / h in 15 seconds - but after the start of sales in 1986, he won the hearts of customers in the continental European market is increasingly leaning toward diesels, and paved the way for much more heavy-duty diesel engines. Last engine TDV8 (installed on Range Rover with the 2011 model year), for example, has a similar capacity with a modern petrol engine V8, but 30% cheaper.
