Charles Spencer King conceived the Range Rover that became one of the best examples of success stories in the British automobile history. The first generation Range Rover that came out in 1970 was fitted with 2-doors (the 2-doors were phased out in 1994) and it was much later in 1981 that the company started making ones with 4-doors.
Considered to be a mid-size Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) these 4x4’s were also termed as 3.5 for the 3.5 litre V8 Rover engine with carburettor. This SUV also had the capacity to tow up to 3.5 tons, seat up to 5 adults comfortably and run 160 km/hr. With hydraulic brakes on all the 4 wheels, power steering, leather seats and powerful air-conditioning occupants felt both safe and comfort inside this SUV. The 3.5 litre engine was upgraded in later years to accommodate larger 3.9 and 4.2 litres.
To mark her huge success since its introduction and to commemorate 20 years of production, Rover in 1990 decided to honour the creator Charles Spencer King by launching a special edition called 'CSK' that had individually numbered plaque on the radio panel.
