This particular Range Rover was used for the development of the model, brake testing together with high mileage testing in order that Land Rover could address any potential reliability problems before their customers had to. She covered over 100.000 miles in the first year with two driver teams working two shifts and driving her on a specific route to ensure the mileage reflected general usage.
Naturally during this intensive use many components were changed or upgraded and she runs later axles, fuel filler neck, bonnet (with no mirrors) and engine too
Her interior retains original PVC injection moulded seats and most unusually door cards made in the same method too - it is believed these are the only ones of this type in existence
We had some lambswool seat covers made to protect the original PVC seats, replacements for which are almost unavailable
Used regularly we have recently been requested to provide her for use at various events
In 2012 she was included in the Queens Diamond Jubilee Tour of Elegance from Kensington Palace to Windsor Castle and thereafter left on display there for the Concours held at the Castle
In 2013 Land Rover requested her presence for the International Press & VIP Launch of the latest new model Range Rover where she was on display and also used for the collection of various VIP's
In 2014 the Offices of the Goodwood Revival asked for her to be used in their "Earls Court Motor Show" display of ground breaking V8 engined cars launched in the 1960's and 1970's
