On Top GearEdit
Land Rovers first appeared on Top Gear in Episode 10 of Series Two, for a reliability challenge. The first review of a Land Rover was in Series 5, Episode 3 when Jeremy Clarkson attempted to climb a mountain in Scotland using a Land Rover Discovery. The challenge was successfully completed (with some difficulties) and the Land Rover generally gained praise.
In Series 6, Clarkson reviewed the Range Rover Sport and challenged it against a British Challenger II tank. Clarkson lost as the tank finally managed to get it's Gunsight trained on the Range Rover. The most recent appearance of a Land Rover car on the show was during Series Fourteen, Episode 4, when the Range Rover 2010MY was reviewed. The presenters have given many Land Rover cars high praise; the Range Rover was given the accolade of Top Gear Car of the Year award in 2002.
