Range Rover has just rolled out its one millionth vehicle at the Solihull plant in England, and the company has donated the car to Help for Heroes charity foundation.
The car was driven by Land Rover’s Managing Director, Phil Popham, to Earl’s Court in London and was presented to Jeremy Clarkson – a Help for Heroes patron – on behalf of the foundation. Phil Popham, MD Jaguar Land Rover, recently said about the event,
“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.”
Hoping to fetch up to £100,000 (around AU$160,400) at the auction, Range Rover decided the model in question would be a top line Range Rover Vogue with every conceivable option.
Range Rover is now in its third generation and will continue as one of the most recognisable and popular icons in motoring history. It will also be joined by the Range Rover Evoque early next year, which should prompt Rangie sales to skyrocket even further.
