Land Rover is celebrating the one millionth sale of the Range Rover Sport.

The carmaker say the milestone sale took place in December 2020, and is marking the occasion with a commemorative film highlighting just some of the famous landmarks the SUV has encountered over its 15 years in production.

The Range Rover Sport made its debut in 2005, with the current second-generation making a spectacular entrance in New York City in 2013 with the assistance of actor Daniel Craig.

The Sport set a new record in its launch year on the Pikes Peak Hill Climb course in the USA and then setting the fastest recorded crossing of the Empty Quarter desert in Saudi Arabia.

In 2018, the performance SUV completed a world-first for a vehicle driving up the 999 steps to renowned landmark Heaven’s Gate in China. 

Last year, the Sport benefited from the brand's new Ingenium six-cylinder diesel engines, new special edition models, as well as the previously launched P400e PHEV powertrain.
