The festivities don’t seem to end at Land Rover who have been celebrating their 65th Anniversary for the past few days. From the Special Edition LXV Defender to getting a special HUE cake to marking a successful six and a half decades of the British SUV manufacturer.
The celebrations have hit the Indian shores too with Land Rover India launching the Land Rover Experience programme for existing and prospective customers, giving them a chance to experience the all-terrain potential of its vehicles. Held near Mumbai, the event was marked with over 100 guests experiencing the thrill of driving a Land Rover over steep inclines, rocks, mud, ruts and through water.
Speaking on the occasion, Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover India said: “The aim of the Land Rover Experience events in India is to allow existing and potential customers to experience the breadth of capability of our vehicles. This trail was chosen for its wide range of challenging terrains, giving our guests an authentic off-road experience in ‘unmodified’ vehicles. The guests attending this event were overwhelmed with our vehicle capability and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”
A thrilled Land Rover owner and enthusiast- Aditya Patel from Mumbai said “The Land Rover experience was a very memorable one, but also a little daunting as I never imagined that a Land Rover was able to get through such conditions with so much ease”.
Another guest, Abhishek Mantri, said: “This experience was one of a kind – the track contained rock, gravel, mud, water and the Freelander just kept going and going without any problems”.
This was the first Land Rover Experience event which would be extended to several cities throughout India.
