‘Ultimate’ Range Rover limited edition revealed

The Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition includes premium updates inside and out, including two new exclusive exterior colours – Roussillon Red or Otago Stone – on top of the traditional Range Rover black.

Coloured door handles, radiator grille and side vents are set off by unique badging and 20" multi-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels to complete the exterior look.

The high price reflects the additions inside, which includes two iPads as standard on all models, an aluminium laptop table and even a drinks chiller.

Range Rover interiors are widely regarded as the most luxurious in the SUV, and the hand-finished limited edition does not disappoint by offering even more premium touches to the cabin.

The limousine styling is emphasised by premium leather liberally applied to the seats, dash and steering wheel, while wood veneers and more exclusive colours for the interior highlights are offered with the limited edition.

In the large load area, Range Rover has taken inspiration from the luxury super yachts of Monaco with a wooden floor trimmed with metal and leather.

The plush interior does not come at the expense of performance; a 4.4-litre V8 diesel engine provides 310bhp and 700Nm of torque, propelling the luxury 4×4 to 60mph from rest in 7.5 seconds.

It also retains Range Rover’s lauded off-road ability with Land Rover’s Terrain Response system and five different driving settings to suit off- and on-road conditions.

However, it will also be the most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever. The upgraded engine returns 30.1mpg – the first Range Rover to break the 30mpg mark.

Only 500 Range Rover Ultimate Edition models will be sold across 20 markets worldwide. Built in the UK, the most exclusive Range Rover ever is expected to cost up to £130,000 when it goes on sale later this year.
