Looks like Range rover are taking over where Overfinch left off when they are expected to finally break through the six-figure price barrier with this new model, the Autobiography Ultimate Edition, as it will be priced at around £130,000.
Set to be unveiled at the start of next month in Geneva, the Ultimate will be limited to just 500 units worldwide, for 20 markets, produced to individual order. Either a 4.4-litre V8 diesel or a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 can be specified.
Range Rover designers have completely revamped the rear cabin, fitting individual back seats, and a new centre console design — made of milled aluminium, leather and wood veneers — has been added. The console includes a drinks chiller and laptop table. The backs of the front seats have been modified to accommodate Apple iPads.
The Ultimate Edition’s rear load space also gets a yacht-style teak floor with aluminium and leather detailing. Semi-aniline leather has been used for seating and new ‘Kalahari’ wood veneers feature on the door tops. The car also gets unique 20in alloy wheels.
