50 Years of Range Rover: 1,970-unit Range Rover Fifty special edition showcased
Jaguar Land Rover has revealed a special edition of its flagship Range Rover, to celebrate the luxury SUV's 50th anniversary. Called simply the Range Rover Fifty, only 1,970 units will be made, signifying the SUV's launch year.
The Range Rover Fifty is based on the Autobiography trim level and can be had in both standard and long-wheelbase versions. Although not specified, the Fifty can be had with all of the petrol, diesel and the P400e PHEV powertrain choices for the Autobiography trim. In India, the Range Rover Autobiography can be had with 3.0-litre inline-six mild-hybrid turbo petrol that puts out 400PS and 550 Nm. This allows it to get from 0 to 100 kmph in 6.3s and on to a top-speed of 225 kmph.
The limited-run Fifty sets itself apart with exterior elements in Auric Atlas, which is complemented by two unique 22-inch alloy-wheel options. There are four special colour options, Carpathian Grey, Rosello Red, Aruba, and Santorini Black. There's also a unique 'Fifty' badging created personally by Gerry McGovern, Land Rover's Chief Creative Officer. This motif will appear on the special edition SUV's exterior and in the interior's numbered centre console commissioning plaque, headrests, dashboard and illuminated treadplates.
As an even more special touch, JLR's Special Vehicle Operations will supply very limited numbers of the Range Rover Fifty in three solid colours that have been reproduced from the original first-gen Range Rover's paint palette. These are Tuscan Blue, Bahama Gold and Davos White. Prices of the Range Rover Fifty have not been announced but a sizeable premium over the standard version can be expected.
Over 10 lakh Range Rovers have been sold over the last 50 years. The SUV is now in its fourth generation and you can read about its journey over the years here.
