The 1,000,000th Range Rover, which was manufactured at Land Rover’s Solihull Plant was donated to a charity. The donated model is a Range Rover Autobiography in ultimate black and will be auctioned for Help for Heroes.
Phil Popham, MD Jaguar Land Rover said: “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. Everyone involved at Land Rover – from the management, to the employees at Solihull, to the original Range Rover team – will be happy we’re able to mark this landmark occasion in such a way after forty years of producing this iconic vehicle.” The Range Rover being donated is the best Range Rover model and is retailed with a price tag of £85,000. It will probably raise around £100,000 at the charity auction.
Bryn Parry, CEO and Co-founder of Help for Heroes said: “We’re delighted that Land Rover has chosen to give Help for Heroes their millionth Range Rover. This is a real milestone in their history and so a very special donation, made even more special by knowing the money raised from the auction of the car will be able to provide much needed funds to help our wounded heroes on their road to recovery.”
