If you’re one of the very small minority of people for whom the Range Rover is not luxurious enough, then we’ve a treat for you. Land Rover has busted out a new long wheelbase version, due for release in 2014, that promises extravagance and splendour on a whole new level.
The Range Rover Long Wheelbase Autobiography Black, to give it its full title, has been fettled to offer increased legroom. Dignitaries and WAGs travelling in the back now have 7.3 inches of extra space to wallow in, while the reclining rear seats now ease back a further eight degrees to a total of 17 degrees.
This, combined with the Executive Class rear seating package, mean the rear passenger cabin of the new RRLWAB should spoil all that are lucky (read: rich) enough to travel in it.
Most Range Rovers are finished with an almost anal level of attention to detail, but Land Rover has lavished even more attention on this Autobiography Black version. The car has been developed by the company’s ‘Engineered To Order’ (ETO) division, and so promises “higher levels of luxury with ‘unique’ design finishes, precision leather detailing and a redesigned centre console with electrically-deployable leather tables, extra USB sockets and bespoke lighting.
Want one? Well get ready to sell your grandmother – it’s expected the Range Rover Long Wheelbase Autobiography Black will have a price tag of more than £130,000.
