About Bumper Re Enforcers
A bumper is a vital safety feature on all vehicles and in order for a car to be considered roadworthy, it's a legal requirement to have both front and rear bumpers fitted.
The Land Rover rear bumper reinforcer, is essentially a sturdy metal bar bolted on to the rear bumper, or onto subframe behind the rear bumper, which acts as a bolster to the bumper, providing extra protection, and supporting the role of the bumper in the event of a rear end collision.
The job of the rear bumper is to absorb the impact of a crash, therefore offering protection to the car, by minimising damage to the frame and body of the car as well as internal and external parts. The rear bumper also serves to protect the occupants of the car in the event of a crash. By absorbing some of the impact of the collision, the rear bumper minimises the force of the crash for driver and passengers. The rear bumper is fixed to a bumper bracket on the rear of the car, enabling it to absorb some of the impact from a rear-end collision. The Land Rover bumper rear reinforcer is fixed onto the rear bumper, or behind it on the subframe, and functions to assist the rear bumper, adding extra reinforcement.
If the Land Rover bumper rear reinforcer needs replacing, having suffered damage in an accident, for example, it's advisable to buy a new or replacement part that has been manufactured to fit the make, model and year of car.
Land Rover trivia
- When the Pope was visiting the UK in 1984, Land Rover designed him a customised Popemobile to use in the country.
- Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
- In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
- Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
- In 2012, Land Rover hired Posh Spice as their temporary creative director. Victoria Beckham was the key to the design of the Evoque Special edition. It came with a hand-finished matte paint job, mohair floor mats, and a matching four-piece luggage set.
