Jaguar Land Rover celebrated its 500,000th Range Rover Sport in style - by auctioning off the vehicle to raise £150,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Workers at the Solihull manufacturing plant were joined by representatives from the charity to mark production of the half millionth Range Rover Sport, which was launched in 2005.
The plant's operations director Alan Volkaerts and members of the production team were on hand to witness the finished vehicle rolling off the production line.
Mr Volkaerts said: "This is a very proud moment for the team as we celebrate yet another significant production milestone for the Solihull plant.
"The Range Rover Sport continues to be a global success story and I am delighted that the half millionth car will be supporting such an incredible charity supporting families across the UK."
Kate Collins, director of fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust, added: "To raise £150,000 from the auction is absolutely incredible and will help transform the lives of so many young people with cancer.
"We're not a large charity and rely on donations so we're enormously grateful to Jaguar Land Rover.
"The money raised could now fund 6,080 hours of specialist care from a Teenage Cancer Trust lead nurse who will help us make sure that young people and their families don't face cancer alone."
Today, the Range Rover Sport continues to be one of the most popular models in the JLR line-up with sales of 43,782 to the end of June, up 67 per cent year on year.
The biggest market for the model is North America where it accounts for more than a third of all Land Rover sales. China and the UK follow closely with sales this calendar year up 18 per cent and 43 per cent respectively.
Updated in 2013, the latest Range Rover Sport is produced at JLR's Advanced Manufacturing Centre in Solihull, which has benefited from a £370 million investment in all-aluminium production processes.
