After 67 years of constant production, the six millionth Land Rover vehicle has officially rolled off the line at the manufacturer’s Solihull plant.
The milestone vehicle is a Yulong White Range Rover LWB Vogue SE, which the company has fitted out with some unique and special features to reflect its historic nature.
Taking centre stage at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, the one-off Range Rover features a subtle touch in the form of a unique image projected by its wing mirror-mounted puddle lamps.
Unique one-off Range Rover
Andy Goss, from Jaguar Land Rover, said: “For 67 years Land Rover has been building the world’s most capable all-purpose vehicles. Over this period, a range of ground-breaking innovations and technologies have blended great design, refinement and unmatched all-terrain capability.”
He added: “It’s fitting that the 6,000,000th Land Rover to be produced is a Range Rover, since this year marks the 45th anniversary of the original Range Rover’s launch and even today, the vehicle remains peerless.
“With the growth of sales in China since the latest version of the Range Rover was introduced in 2012, it is entirely appropriate that this landmark vehicle is destined for a Chinese customer.”
After its debut at the Shanghai show, the historic Range Rover will travel across the country to take part in a number of celebratory events, before the special Range Rover is sold to one lucky customer.
Sitting at the very top of the Land Rover line-up, the Range Rover has won a hard-earned reputation for quality and capability, and can list various celebrities, sportspeople and even royalty among its fans.
The latest model was introduced back in 2012, with a range of state-of-the-art petrol, diesel and hybrid powertrains to deliver exceptional refinement, performance and efficiency.
67 years, six million cars produced
It’s certainly a long way from the original Series I Land Rover, which was first unveiled at the Amsterdam Motor Show in April 1948, and which became one of the most revered cars of its type in history.
Since then, Land Rover has been producing cars for the past 67 years between its plants in Solihull and Halewood, with the current model line-up consisting of six separate model families.
Of the six million Land Rovers produced, nearly a million have borne Range Rover badges, and the iconic luxury SUV is even the first car to be displayed at the Louvre museum in Paris.
