Of the 6 million, about 900,000 vehicles produced have been Range Rover’s.

The year 2015 has just started, and it has already been special to the British brand. Not only they celebrated 67 years of innovation in design and technology; they also celebrated the 45th anniversary of Range Rover production. Continuing with the celebrations, Land Rover now celebrates the production of 6 millionth vehicle at their Solhull unit.

The 6 millionth Land Rover vehicle to roll out of Solihull.

In order to comemorate the event, the 6 millionth Land Rover from Solihull plant is a special one-off model. It is on display at the Land Rover stalls at 2015 Auto Shanghai, which is being held at National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from April 22 to April 29, 2015.

6 millionth Land Rover is a Range Rover LWB Vogue SE in Yulong White. It is being offered in a unique design feature with celebratory puddle lamp graphics to draw attention to its distinctive stature.

What is known as Solihull plant today (property of Jaguar Land Rover owners, Tata Motors), was built in 1936 as Shadow Factory by the British Government. Its purpose was to build war machines, which would equip the Britsh troops during World War II.

Proudly displaying the Land Rover logo and its 6 millionth figure, the illuminated graphic is just the width of a grain of rice but being projected through a magnifying lens each time the vehicle is unlocked in an image 80 cms in diameter. It is this same graphic that was displayed onto the wall at the company’s Solihull manufacturing plant just as the luxury SUV rolled off production lines.

After Auto Shanghai, this special Land Rover Range Rover will head to many special events across the globe, before being auctioned off. This particular Range Rover receives a distinctive exterior design and a host of on board comforts with special attention paid to the finest of details. Considering the demand for Range Rover in China and for the fact that this landmark Land Rover is on display in the country, there is a strong likelihood that the 6 millionth RR might go into the possession of a Chinese customer.
