One of this year's Goodwood Speedweek highlights was a unique gathering of 50 Range Rovers, as they took part in a parade around Goodwood Motor Circuit to celebrate 50 years of Range Rover.

An eclectic mix of Range Rovers from the last half century formed the parade to commemorate the special anniversary, from original classics to a modified ambulance and a 6x6 fire engine.

The procession included an eclectic mix of models including Range Rover fire engines, expedition vehicles, ambulances, and record breakers
The parade was led around the famous circuit by two iconic vehicles: The first, a 1969 drivable chassis with a 4x4 system originally developed to allow engineers to monitor suspension and powertrain over rough terrain, ensuring the Range Rover was one of the most capable vehicles of its time.

The second was a brand new limited edition Range Rover Fifty, number 1 of 1970, produced specifically to mark the 50th anniversary celebrations of Range Rover.

All four generations of Range Rover featured in the convoy and included the Beaver Bullet, which broke 27 speed records in 1985, a Trans-American Expedition example which crossed the all-but-impassable Darien Gap in 1971 and a 2004 example used by the Greater Manchester police. 

The same 50 Range Rovers also took part in a  complex dynamic '50' formation, creating a spectacular moving aerial image and captured with a drone.
