Would You Take A Range Rover For Apocalypse?

When the floods come and there's anarchy on the streets, a Range is probably a pretty good place to be.


Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.

The Range Rover is an icon of motoring. In 40 plus years there have been barely 4 generations, and only one looks like a Ford Explorer. While it may now be more of a new money urban activity vehicle than originally intended, it hasn't lost its incredibly capabilities. And for any pre-2013 model, you get a pretty handsome machine as well.

But looks aren't going to get you out of the hellfire forecasters are calling for in 11 days. (Unless you're pretty enough to be some sort of queen in the post-civilization world). That's where the off-road capabilities come in. When you don't make it onto the ark and need to drive to the top of a mountain, the Range Rover is your friend.

Would you choose it? Decide soon. Finance it all because money won't matter in a few days.

I've thought long and hard about this. A Rangey is too complex. You want a 4x4 Hilux Surf. Reliable, easy to scavange parts for and can go anywhere. And in a zombie a apocalypse, you can fire a crossbow out the sun-roof. You'll want a cross-bow due to the scarcity of ammunition. Ideally, you'll have some variety of melee weapon, too. I favour the katana, as you can take off a head without having to get too close. I used to favour the chainsaw, but its just making noise and using valuable fuel. Of course, if your feeling really survivalist, a Defender is probably the only way to go.
