Sunday 6th March wasn’t just Mother’s Day, it was also the day Land Rover marked the production of the 100,000th Discovery Sport, and to celebrate, the car maker made the day extra special for one lucky mother.
Going undercover, Land Rover designers and engineers met the
Lipton family, who had unintentionally bought the milestone vehicle, to surprise
mum Natalie on her extra special car collection day. The two family members who
helped the team finishing touches that made all the difference were 7 year old
Jacob and 5 year old Noah.
The Lipton little lads received an access-all-areas tour of the company’s Design and Engineering Centre at Gaydon, as they brought their ideas and inspiration to life with a team of designers, suppliers and experts, creating a Land Rover Discovery unique for their mum.
Paul Cleaver said: “It’s fantastic that the Discovery Sport has reached this significant milestone. To know that this car has resonated with customers across the world is a testament to the whole team involved in its creation and delivery.
“The Discovery Sport is a truly versatile family car so it’s fitting that we are celebrating with such a special project from the Land Rover family to the Lipton family. It was fantastic meeting Noah and Jacob, they were enthusiastic, energetic and full of great ideas – definitely budding future car designers!”
