Land Rover is extending the range with a new long-wheelbase model and the addition of a very exclusive specification, Autobiography Black.
Land Rover says the long-wheelbase model will cater for a growing group of consumers looking for the ultimate SUV. It will also serve as a nice alternative to the luxury barges served up by Mercedes, BMW and Audi.
Rear legroom has increased by 140mm, which has left them with enough space to fit an executive seating package. Land Rover claims this augmentation has had no effect on the Range Rover’s legendary off-road ability.
The Autobiography Black specification is the most luxurious Range Rover ever built. This ultrabarge will be revealed at the Dubai International Motor Show this week.
This unique Range Rover features a different front grille and side vents along with distinguishable badging in black enamel and chrome. Two new and exclusive Autobiography Black wheel designs will also be available.
On the inside you get the previously mentioned Executive seating package. It offers two individual, fully adjustable seats and a redesigned and extended centre console. Rear screens are fitted to the rear of the front seats and work together with a Meridian audio system to give passengers premium on-board entertainment.
The extended console includes electrically deployable tables covered in black leather with integrated USB charging sockets and cup holders. Naturally, you also get a chilled compartment to keep the champagne and glasses frosty at all times. And while the main party may be in the back, it’s not too shabby up front either. The driver and front passenger are treated to massaging seats and climate control. Rear passengers benefit from the addition of lumbar massage and powered recline, a calf rest for the rear passenger side occupant and Solar Attenuating privacy glass.
Both models will be available in South Africa by end 2014.
