➤ No prices available, but Range Rover Autobiography starts from £108,760.
Limited to 1,970 units globally, Range Rover celebrates its half century with a special edition Range Rover Fifty to mark its introduction on 17th June, 1970.
The original Range Rover has defined the market since 17th June 1970 and, five decades on and now in its fourth generation, the Range Rover has evolved to become a family of desirable and capable luxury vehicles.
With its clamshell bonnet, distinctive floating roof, split tailgate and trademark front fender vents, the Range Rover of today can trace its roots back to the 1970 original. To celebrate 50 years of a motoring icon, the limited-run Range Rover Fifty will be restricted to just 1,970 vehicles globally, in recognition of the year the original Range Rover was launched.
Taking the ‘Autobiography’ trim grade as the donor model, the Range Rover Fifty features a number of bespoke exterior accents and offers two unique 22-inch wheel designs. The badging features a ‘Fifty’ script penned by Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Land Rover’s Chief Creative Officer, which will appear on the exterior of the vehicle and throughout its interior on the unique ‘1 of 1970’ centre console commissioning plaque, headrests, dashboard and illuminated tread plates.
The Range Rover Fifty will be available in both standard and long wheelbase body designs with customers able to choose from four carefully curated exterior colours; Carpathian Grey, Rosello Red, Aruba, and Santorini Black.
In extremely limited numbers, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations is also offering the Range Rover Fifty in one of three Heritage exterior solid paints reproduced from the original Range Rover paint palette; Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold and Davos White. A range of powertrain options will be available; petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid P400e version, depending on market availability.
