According to the manufacturer, the Land Rover Discovery, wearing the 1,000,000th number “on it” will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show in China, which will open its gates in April, but in order to get the SUV to Asia, a team of four will drive it from Birmingham, UK, to Beijing. Th Land Rover crew will have to drive the Discovery over 8,000 miles in just 50 days, so that the model will be displayed at the Beijing Motor Show, on the 23rd of April.

“The 1,000,000th Land Rover Discovery has been produced at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull manufacturing plant in the UK West Midlands. The company will showcase the Discovery’s unique versatility and breadth of capability by embarking on an expedition from its birthplace in Birmingham, UK to one of its fastest growing markets Beijing in China”, as the automaker is saying in its official press release.

Land Rover says that as a part of the journey, the company will attempt to raise 1 million pounds for the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, in order to support a water sanitation project in Uganda.
