Extreme Sand Drawing

Quote
The Land Rover's story started in Red Wharf Bay in 1947 when Maurice Wilks drew his first sketch in the sand with his brother. His car's story ends after 68 years with the Defender's finish this December, but before that, Land Rover is giving us 3 stunning cars with a wonderful farewell in the sand.

Let's start with the temporarily art piece, because making something like this with such iconic cars sounds like the best way to spend a sunny morning on the beach.

Land Rover went out to Anglesey with six vehicles, a Land Rover Series I, II and III, a Ninety, a Defender 90 Hard Top and a Defender 110 Station Wagon. The Series II once belonged to the Wilks family and cousins Stephen and Nick Wilks, the sons of Maurice and Spencer Wilks were also there to honor their father's achievement, who owned land on the Welsh island and started the project by being in need of a versatile vehicle that could do it all.

Directed by sand artist Jamie Wardley, the team had only about three hours to draw the continuous 4.52km (2.8 mile) line into the sand before it was all erased by the incoming tide.
