Land Rover, an iconic British car brand owned by Indian conglomerate Tatas, has been ranked 91st with a brand value of $4.47 billion and is one of the five new entrants on this annual list compiled by leading brand consultancy Interbrand.

Apple — maker of iPhone mobiles, Mac computers, iPad tablets and iPod music players among others — is followed by Google on the second position ($107 billion). These are the only two with brand values in excess of $100 billion.
