50 years of Land Rover celebrated at Goodwood

Posted on 23 Oct 2020 and read 391 times
50 years of Land Rover celebrated at GoodwoodA unique gathering of 50 Range Rovers took part in a parade around Goodwood Motor Circuit last week to celebrate 50 years of Range Rover - one of the highlights of Goodwood Speedweek.

An eclectic mix of Range Rovers from the last half century formed the parade to commemorate the special anniversary, from original classics to a modified ambulance and a 6x6 fire engine.

The parade was led around the famous circuit by two iconic vehicles: the first, a 1969 drivable chassis, originally developed to allow engineers to monitor suspension and powertrain over rough terrain, ensuring the Range Rover was one of the most capable vehicles of its time; the second was a brand-new limited edition ‘Range Rover Fifty’, number 1 of 1970, produced specifically to mark this year’s celebrations.

All four generations of Range Rover featured in the convoy and included the Beaver Bullet, which broke 27 speed records in 1985, a Trans-American Expedition example which crossed the all-but-impassable Darien Gap in 1971 and a 2004 example used by Greater Manchester police.

Land RoverThe same 50 Range Rovers also took part in a complex dynamic ’50’ formation, creating a spectacular moving aerial image, co-ordinated by professional drivers, and captured with a drone.

All 50 vehicles and drivers had to undergo training during the day to precisely navigate and position each vehicle to achieve the one-off visual.

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.”

The limited edition Range Rover Fifty is available to configure at the Web site (www.landrover.co.uk) with a starting price of £111,195.
