Range Rover marks 50 years with special edition

Range Rover has marked 50 years since the introduction of the model that defined luxury SUV with a special version, the Range Rover Fifty, writes Brian Byrne.

Only 1,970 units of this special edition will be available globally, devised by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations. The number reflects the year in which the original was launched, on 17 June.

The Range Rover Fifty is based on the Autobiography grade, with special badging and details, in both standard and long wheelbase variants. Powertrains from the latest fourth-generation Range Rover in petrol, diesel and hybrid will be offered.

More than a million Range Rovers have been sold, and the original model has expanded into Evoque, Velar and Sport companion nameplates.
