The British television series The Avengers was remade in the 1970s, several years after the popular spy show went off the air in 1969. Plenty of cars were featured in action scenes, including a red Jaguar E-Type. However, in the remake, the show included the first-generation Range Rover, the vehicle that started the craze of go-anywhere luxury SUVs.
