Stephen Bayley: Never frivolous, a British classic that has always been a triumph of design

The original Land Rover is one of the all-time classic cars. Typically for a British product, it was also something of a glorious lash-up and compromise (although an inspired one). By the time it is replaced in 2015, the Land Rover will have been in production for nearly 70 years, a figure that exceeds automobilia's distinguished gerontocracy of the Model-T Ford, the Volkswagen, Mini and Porsche 911.

However, his 14-year-old son is now 5ft 9ins, which means getting him in the back of the Mini is no longer an option.
