It’s been 50 years since the Range Rover badge first appeared. Land Rover has marked the milestone with a special edition Range Rover Fifty. The first model left the production line on 17 June 1970, creating the blueprint for the luxury SUV in the process.

Since 1970, the Range Rover has continued to evolve, setting the benchmark with each generation. It was the first SUV to feature a permanent 4WD system, in 1989 it became the first 4×4 to be fitted with ABS anti-lock brakes and in 1992, the first 4×4 to be fitted with electronic traction control (ETC) and automatic electronic air suspension.
