Spen King

One of the the British engineering industry’s biggest characters and the “father” of the Range Rover, Charles Spencer “Spen” King, died on the 26th June from injuries sustained when his bicycle collided with a van a fortnight earlier.

King was head of new vehicle projects at Rover from 1959, a role in which he oversaw some of the most popular cars of the era including the Rover 2000 and SD1, as well as the Triumph 2000 Mk2, Stag and TR7.

Graham Robson has written an obituary for us which will appear in the August edition of SIXappeal.
