Epithets like “iconic” and “legendary” are hurled around by car companies with such frequency that they cease to have any real meaning. But in the case of the Land Rover Defender, you’d have to make an exception. Two years after the last Defender left the production line, the company’s Classic division has reanimated the old soldier in the form of the Works V8, the fastest and most powerful Defender ever made.
Bullitt celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Yes, yes, it’s probably done more for the one-man iconography industry that is Steve McQueen than any of his other films, but let’s not forget it featured an incomparable soundtrack by Argentine genius Lalo Schifrin – he’s still alive, by the way – overlooked Sixties Brit It girl Jacqueline Bisset, and conjured a San Francisco milieu miles away from Haight-Ashbury free love.

This is the new Mercedes G-class. No really. It surely takes some kind of genius to create an all-new car that so slavishly apes the car it’s replacing. Ordinarily, we’d heap scorn on this sort of creative and aesthetic bankruptcy, but in this instance Mercedes is off-the-hook. Because, just like its British equivalent, the Land Rover Defender, the G-class is one of those vehicles whose appeal and ability is vested in a set of criteria that defies all logic.
@JLeightonPhoto@MattBendall It's my own personal initiation test. Justin passed with flying colours. Then again, on that particular trip we thought we could accurately establish the driving distance across Japan using our thumb and forefinger. Didn't work
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
