British car manufacturer Land Rover unveils its most expensive Range Rover model ever costing over $226,000.
Land Rover’s first ever long wheelbase (LWB) Range Rover and new top-of-the-range Autobiography Black trim level has been revealed ahead of next month’s Los Angeles Motor Show. Naturally, the car is white, rather than black. The LWB Autobiography Black provides Range Rover with a model to rival the new upmarket SUVs that are coming soon from Bentley and Lamborghini.
The new range-topping super-luxury Range Rover Autobiography Black looks the part with its black enamel, chrome front grille and regal side vents. Different rear lamps and a chrome accent finish tailgate as well as 21-inch wheels are standard.
Inside it offers occupants fully adjustable reclining seats with in-built massager, champagne chiller, individual electronic tables in black leather, mood lighting, as well as a range of luxurious leather and wood interior trim. Very posh.
PaulTan.org has all more details:
The stretched fourth-gen Range Rover comes with subtle ‘L’ badges behind the front wheel arches, powered side door blinds, a panoramic sunroof and increased stowage as standard. The long wheelbase will be offered on Autobiography and Autobiography Black models. A hybrid derivative will arrive later in 2014.
The wraps are set to come off the new Range Rover Autobiography Black early next month at the Dubai show. A product of Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘Engineered To Order’ (ETO) division, the Autobiography Black gets unique design finishes on its front grille and side vents along with black enamel and chrome badging.
There are also 21- or 22-inch seven-spoke wheels in a high-gloss polished finish, signature rear lamps and auxiliary vents, and a tailgate with chrome accents.
Specifically in the Executive Class seating package you get unique seat covers, two individual fully-adjustable rear seats, 10.2-inch screens in the front headrests and a Meridian sound system. A redesigned rear centre console incorporates electrically-deployable tray tables covered in black leather with integrated USB ports and cupholders.
There’s also a chiller compartment and increased rear storage. The headphone storage trim can be removed to reveal a ski hatch whilst the entire rear console can be illuminated according to the vehicle’s mood lighting settings.
The driver and front passenger get massage seats with memory and 18-way adjustability.
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.
You can set the intensity and colour (10 colours to choose from) of the LED mood lighting, which is concentrated on the door handles and stowage compartments, as well as following the lines of the veneered surfaces on the centre console.
Three exclusive colour combos are available on the Range Rover Autobiography Black at launch: Ebony/Lunar, Espresso/Tan and Dark Cherry/Ivory – the latter including a unique two-tone seat.
Deliveries are set to begin from March 2014 for the long-wheelbase Range Rover and August 2014 for the Range Rover Autobiography Black.
