The LONGITUDE Expedition (Nov 2003 to Mar 2005) was a sixteen-month circumnavigation of the globe and a promotion for Land Rover Certified. Four vehicles traveled 44,000-miles through 30 countries to promote awareness of scientific research programs, geography, and cultural diversity in schools, and to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's Disease research.
After passing a 140-point inspection and pronounced "Certified" this vehicle was driven on the 44,000-mile LONGITUDE Expedition.
Eight Drive Around the World vehicles were created for the LONGITUDE Expedition. Four of them traveled around the world and the remaining four were used in the USA to promote free distance learning program in schools and for promotions with Land Rover Certified. The four that went on the expedition were named D1-D4.
