Land Rover is one of the most common names that comes into mind when talking about off-road adventures. The British brand now celebrates an important milestone, after producing the 6.000.000th Land Rover in its Solihull facility, where the company has been producing its SUVs since 1948. Of the 6,000,000 Land Rovers produced, more than 900,000 are Range Rover vehicles.
The original Land Rover Series I was unveiled at the Amsterdam Motor Show on 30 April 1948, so this month marks the 67th anniversary of the brand. One-third of the 6,000,000 vehicles produced to date have been manufactured in the last eight years at Land Rover’s UK plants, in Solihull in the West Midlands and Halewood on Merseyside.
To mark the production record, Land Rover customized the milestone vehicle, a Yulong White Range Rover LWB Vogue SE with bespoke puddle lamp graphic to signify its unique status.
The gizmo replaces the standard Range Rover silhouette projected by the vehicle’s puddle lamps. The image is created by an inscribed lens within the door mirror-mounted downlight and displaying the Land Rover logo and landmark figure.
The illuminated graphic, which is the width of a grain of rice, is projected through a magnifying lens onto the ground every time the vehicle is unlocked in an image which is 80cm in diameter.
