thanks to a revolutionary and robust new custom taillight. Specialist UK-based
automotive light manufacturer Glohh has announced the launch of its innovative
GL-3 Taillight, specifically designed for the popular first generation model of
the Range Rover Sport.
Designer Dr Faheem Rafiq said: “When production of one of the most popular and

resistance, and undoubtedly superior quality. As such, they have become the
industry standard in the automotive industry for premium vehicles. Rafiq said:

latest in light technology come to benefit an outgoing model, it also ensures
better power efficiency and a longevity, which means the lights will outlast
the life of the vehicle.”
