The Land Rover Newsroom have recently reported on the plant in Solihull, West Midlands producing it’s 6,000,000th Land Rover model. To celebrate the monumental moment in the company’s history on the 2nd April 2015, the vehicle was given a one-off design. The model is entitled the ‘Yulong White Range Rover LWB Vogue SE’.
The 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, which is open from 22nd to 29th April will see the unique SUV take centre stage. It has a puddle lamp graphic which is bespoke on the milestone car, that the lights produce with a silhoutte of the landmark production number and the Land Rover logo. On a standard model, it is the Range Rover silhoutte that is shone from the lights. The image is formed every time the vehicle is unlocked. At the moment the 6,000,000th Land Rover rolled off the production line in Solihull, the special graphic produced from the headlamps, was also projected onto the wall off the factory.
In addition to the puddle lamp graphic, the Yulong White Range Rover boasts luxurious interior and exterior styling. The car will move from the Shanghai Auto show to various other celebratory events in China and remain in Asia after being sold in the region.
The Director of Group Sales Operations at 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……It’s fitting that the 6,000,000th Land Rover to be produced is a Range Rover, since this year marks the 45thanniversary 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.”
Sidesteps UK share Land Rover’s enthusiasm for creating such a fantastic 4×4 and congratulate Land Rover on this tremendous achievement in producing 6,000,000 vehicles!
