I was under the impression its just aConcept car with no production plans, although apparently some un-named rapper is in talks to use it in his next video.

Yep according to this its a concept, however the Overfinch is very real, very fast, and very expensive (approx ?100k if I remeber correctly)

please tell me he's going to use the vehicle for its purpose and not drive around in the city just for the looks. that car is not made for a "look at me" it's got more offroad tech than all the previous land rover models.

now i'm going to prepare myself for when all those rappers get wind of this car

It's a concept car...your friend is probably bullsh*tting you mate. You cant preorder it...and even if you could "Ax3L's mate from Milton Keynes" wouldnt be top of their list. ;)

I quote from the site "Range Stormer is a high performance, sports tourer SUV concept car which reveals the future design direction for Land Rover..."

You cant preorder a concept car...or more simply, you cant preorder a car that isn't in production.

He's in a very high paid job working for cisco systems, is a close family friend and would have no reason to lie to all of us!? He is down on the list and it's definately coming out... they don't make websites for just concept cars u know, it's to promote it. He's already put ?1000 down and it starts production in 2005.

Edit: Plus he aint from Milton Keynes;))

concept car != production car. never. there are always design changes along the way, and i highly doubt a manufacturer as conservative as land rover is going to go with that design for production. he may be on the list for it, but it ain't going to look like that when he gets it!

You could be right. But to use an example the Seat Altea was concept last year and now its in production and it looks exactly the same! And PLEASE whoever sed that u can't drive around the city in one of those made one stupid comment. If u have the money, ur allowed to be flash!!!! :cool:

does this car look like its been designed for off-roading?

all land rovers can go off road but are not intended to really, except this one; still in production and still of of the most capable off roaders of all time, yes its land rover.

unfortunatley people do ponse around in huge pick-ups and 4x4 to look cool when actually they're just scarificing comfort, economy and handling by choosing one over a saloon.

anyone who has one just to drive around town knows nothing about cars, they obviously don't like to drive them and they waste there money on them. they're just victims.

Right on the main page of www.rangestormer.com it states:

"Range Stormer is a high performance, sports touring SUV concept car, which reveals the future design direction for Land Rover and the company's increasingly bold approach to new technologies."

It goes on to say that they will be posting how the Range Stormer influences future vehicles. Nowhere on the site does it mention in any way, shape, or form that the car is even being thought about for production.

And ... jesus those seats look uncomfortable.

Beats me but it all sounds cool, you have got to admit that pretty much ALL the visual features of that car look pretty stunning... inside and out.

Edit to save double post: YEAH but what I'm saying is that he's pre-ordered it and put down a deposite, screw what the website sez... perhaps sum1 shud phone them up and find out for themselves for real!!! :p

Eww! What's with all these ugly concept-like cars actually being manufactured? The greatest cars were that of the late 90's. These new things look all plastic and way too futuristic. Sorry.
