Land Rover marks 50 years of its iconic Range Rover.

Land Rover marked 50 years of its iconic Range Rover with a driving parade at Goodwood’s SpeedWeek.

A collection of 50 Range Rovers built over several decades formed up the parade, including uniquely modified versions such as fire engines, expedition vehicles and ambulances.

All four generations of Range Rover were included in the display, which saw the classic off-roaders driver around the circuit before forming up on the grass to the create a number ‘50’ which was visible from the sky. 

Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director said

As we continue to celebrate Range Rover’s 50th Anniversary throughout 2020, it has been a pleasure to remind ourselves not only of some of the extraordinary forms that the Range Rover has taken over the years, but also the people and stories behind them. Of course, the gathering was aptly marked by the debut of the new Range Rover Fifty limited edition which epitomises the design, luxury and capability Range Rover stands for today. I would personally like to express my thanks to the owners and collectors who contributed to the event, helping us celebrate this significant milestone in Range Rover’s heritage.

A particular highlight was a driveable chassis from 1969, which was developed in order for engineers to be able to monitor how the suspension and powertrain coped with difficult terrain. 

Other notable cars included the Beaver Bullet - which broke 27 speed records in 1985 - and a Trans-American Expedition model which crossed the Darien Gap in 1971.
