Range Rover are celebrating 50 years of the marque with a special new model.

The Range Rover Fifty is being launched to mark half-a-century since the original Range Rover model went on sale.  The trend-setting original Range Rover first hit UK showrooms on 17 June 1970, and went on to pioneer many innovations in the SUV sector including permanent four-wheel drive, anti-lock brakes, and electronic traction control.

Aptly, there will be just 1,970 examples of the Range Rover Fifty produced.  It is based on the Autobiography model, gaining bespoke Auric Atlas exterior accents, unique 22-inch alloy wheels, and special ‘Fifty’ badging throughout.  Standard and long wheelbase version will be available, along with a choice of four specially selected standard colours - Carpathian Grey, Rosello Red, Aruba, and Santorini Black -   and three heritage colours from Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations in the form of Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold, and Davos White.  A range of powertrain options will be available; petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid P400e version.

The Range Rover Fifty is available at Range Rover retailers.
