Land Rover makes stage debut at MPH 2007


Gaydon, Warwickshire, 1 October 2007 – For the first time, Land Rover will be one of the star attractions in the live theatre at the 2007 MPH Show from 1-4 November at Earls Court and 8-11 November at the NEC, Birmingham.

Created by the producers of BBC Top Gear, the MPH theatre features live action sequences and stunts presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. With an awe-inspiring, gravity defying display, the Land Rover Discovery 3 will be one of the highlights of the show and will be sure to wow the audiences.

Andy Griffiths, Land Rover UK marketing director commented: “I’m not only looking forward to Land Rover’s debut in the theatre, but also what the stunt holds in store for us. Whatever the boys at MPH have planned, it’s sure to be spectacular.”

Visitors wanting to get closer to the action can take a ride on the ‘Terrapod’, Land Rover’s indoor off-road course featuring steep descents, wheel articulation and side slopes. Those wishing for the ultimate 4×4 experience can also try their luck by entering Land Rover’s competition to win one of 40 Icelandic Adventures.

Making an appearance on the Land Rover stand will be the 2008 model year Range Rover Sport TDV8 HST, alongside the G4 Challenge Range Rover Sport and a Range Rover Autobiography. The TDV8 HST is available on the road from £59,895 and features 20 inch ‘Stormer’ alloy wheels, tail-mounted rear spoiler, deep sculptured front and rear bumpers with integrated rectangular exhaust tailpipes, body-coloured lower body side mouldings, body-coloured lower tailgate moulding, privacy glass, Harman/Kardon LOGIC 7 audio system, hand polished lined oak interior trim and premium carpet mats.
