The VELAR is Reborn. The luxury SUV was created in 1970 when Land Rover launched the original Range Rover. Almost half a century later that spirit of innovation continues with the introduction of the fourth member of the Range Rover family, to be unveiled on 1 March 2017.
Elegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and pioneering consumer technology are the hallmarks of the new Range Rover Velar.
The origin of the Velar name (pronounced vel-ar) dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the Sixties: the pioneers of the luxury SUV landscape.
When development engineers needed to hide the true identity of the 26 pre-production Range Rovers, they chose the name Velar, derived from the Latin velare meaning to veil or cover.
The Adventure Overland Show is the largest event of its kind in the UK. Run by, and for, overlanders and those with a passion for the outdoor life.
Nene Overland will be displaying a range of Expedition and Overland vehicles including our brand new CamelBAC Expedition Trailer. In addition to a selection of the legendary Land Rover Defenders we will also have a few Wild Jeep Wranglers – the obvious successor to the Defender now that it is no more – We have also added the Can-Am lineup to our portfolio with the absolutely amazing Spyder as well as other ATVs and Quads for serious off-road use.
Unique to our line of equipment accessories is Hannibal Safari Equipment for roof tents, roof racks and other overland kit. For Jeeps we are the UK distributor for the world-renowned American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) equipment for those that want to [...]

We’re delighted to provide a first look at the new work light due late 2016. Back by popular demand, and a natural extension of the range of market leading, high performance driving lights, the UTILITY SERIES looks set to establish a new standard in work and scene lighting.
The first lamp to launch in the range will be the 45W, Utility-45, and will incorporate the latest and most advanced LED systems alongside some revolutionary patent-pending design features to maximise light output, functionality, and reliability.
The most striking and noticeable of these features is the ‘MATRIX’ cooling system – a CAE optimised heatsink providing 20% more surface area than the more traditional ‘fin’ heatsink. More surface area equals better thermal conductivity equals the possibility to run the latest high density LEDs (huge lumen/watt performance) at higher drive currents, in other words, you can get the same light from a 45W lamp [...]
Nene Overland is continuing with its development of the WILD JEEP brand and has added two more products that were designed in-house and manufactured exclusively by us for the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Renegade.
Wild Jeep Wrangler Grille
Manufactured from 1.5mm alloy the Wild Wrangler Grille fits all post 2007 Wranglers and both protects the radiator and intercooler from flying stones and other debris that the standard Wrangler is very exposed to and it looks absolutely fantastic. The grille is pressed from sheet alloy to give a very precise finish and the diamond pattern mesh is integral to the design rather than being stuck on afterwards. It is supplied as standard in black but can be finished with a textured [...]

Someone at Jeep HQ mistakenly released photos of the soon-to-be-confirmed Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk (shown here) but although the images were quickly withdrawn they’d already found there way onto the internet.
What we see looks like a standard-isa Grand Cherokee with a few design and trim tweets to fit in with the Trailhawk theme used on the Renegade. There are a few red exterior highlights, tow hooks, larger wheels with more aggressive tyres and what looks like a slightly raised suspension set up. we will have to wait for the official confirmation from Jeep as to what the entire Trailhawk package includes. It probably will not be the 6.4 litre HEMI V8 as used by the SRT. Whether we get both petrol and diesel variants in the UK is another unknown as yet.
Jeep Trailcat: Hellcat-powered off-roader capable of crawling or high-speed runs
The Jeep Trailcat concept vehicle is the ultimate off-road machine, equally at home on Moab’s rugged trails or a high-speed section. Utilizing the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine, and mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a custom shifter ball featuring an embossed Hellcat logo, the Trailcat concept vehicle leaves everything else in a cloud of dust.
To get the 707-horsepower Hellcat engine into the Trailcat, designers stretched the wheelbase an additional 12 inches while chopping the windshield two inches for a sleeker look. Mopar exterior enhancements include a power-dome vented hood, Satin Black grille, LED headlamps and fog lamps and rock rails.
The robust off-road look is further aided by steel front and rear bumpers, 17-inch beadlock wheels and 39.5-inch BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX [...]
