Land Rover celebrates the one millionth Discovery as only Land Rover can… by driving 8,000 miles around the world
One million… that is a staggering number no matter what you’re talking about. But when it comes to vehicle units produces of a certain product line, well, that is just flat out astonishing. That is the number Land Rover hit with the Discovery a little while back, so they decided to celebrate… by retracing an expedition route taken in 1956 which just happened to be a little over 8,000 miles.
The expedition started in Birmigham, England and wound it’s way around the world before finishing up in Beijing, China, just in time for the Beijing Auto Show. Along the way they even managed to become the first private vehicles to tour Chernobyl since the disaster over 25 years ago. And to top all of that off, Land Rover managed to raise just over $1.6 million for the Red Cross. All said and done, I would call it a very successful little jaunt around the globe. Congratulations Land Rover!
