Sheikh Mohammed first in the world to own all-aluminium Range Rover

 Range Rovers first all-aluminium car delivered to UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai
Yet another moment for us in the UAE to be proud! The worlds first all-aluminium Range Rover was handed over to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. That makes him the first person globally to own the worlds first all-aluminium Range Rover. Two Range Rover vehicles were delivered to His Highness, one with his symbolic DUBAI 1 registration plate as also one with the registration DUBAI 11 for his son, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
With these two deliveries, Al Tayer Motors, who are the exclusive distributor for Land Rover in the UAE, have become the first dealer in the world to deliver the all new Range Rover. Heres what Phil Popham, Director, Group Sales Operations, Jaguar Land Rover had to say: “This is a great honour for Land Rover, and we are delighted that His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has taken delivery of the first new Range Rover globally. With the Land Rover strength at its heart, the new model has been engineered to be the most capable and refined Range Rover ever. While maintaining the essential, unique character of the vehicle that blends luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability, the new design and revolutionary lightweight construction have enabled us to transform the experience for luxury vehicle drivers”.
The worlds first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminum body, the fourth generation of Range Rover made its global public debut at the 2012 Paris International Motor Show. The new Range Rover will be produced in a low-energy manufacturing facility at Solihull, UK, with over £370 million invested in the Solihull plant to create the worlds largest aluminum body shop. With a model-for-model weight saving of up to 350 kg compared to the outgoing vehicle, the new Range Rover will offer a choice of three engines (one gasoline and two diesel) with a high-efficiency diesel hybrid model coming in 2013.
