Land Rover is celebrating the production of its one millionth Range Rover by donating the vehicle to Help for Heroes. The landmark one millionth vehicle, a Range Rover Autobiography in ultimate black, has been built at the Solihull manufacturing plant, where three generations of the Range Rover have been built since June 1970. Land Rover employees celebrated the milestone event in Range Rover’s fortieth year. The handover took place on the Top Gear Live set at Earls Court in London where Jeremy Clarkson, who is a Help for Heroes patron, took delivery of the one millionth Range Rover on behalf of the charity. The Range Rover being donated is the highest-specification model currently available, the Range Rover Vogue, valued in excess of £85,000. Estimates suggest it will raise over £100,000 for charity when auctioned later this year.
“Land Rover is very proud to support the Help for Heroes charity by donating the one millionth Range Rover. The vehicle will be auctioned later this year and should raise valuable funds for the practical and direct provision of aid for wounded service people and their families,” Phil Popham, MD Jaguar Land Rover, said.
