Earlier this year Range Rover showed off their limited edition Autobiography Ultimate Edition SUV. Just 500 of these uber expensive, hand finished road vehicles will be produced. So if you want one you better get in line.
The mainstay of this vehicle is its opulent interior. Rear passengers will enjoy stand alone powered seats complemented by an extended rear console that sports a machined aluminum laptop table, drinks chiller, and two Apple iPad devices, all of which are included in the final price tag of $170,000. Ouch.
The rear, as in the luggage area, is finished with “a super-yacht inspired teak floor with metal and leather detailing.” If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, the remaining interior is finished high-end semi-aniline leather seating and Oxford leather on the door casings, dashboard top and steering wheel. They’ve also outfitted the dash and door trim with Kalahari wood veneers.
On the exterior, two special colors (Roussillon Red or Otago Stone) will be available, ensuring that your peers know your rolling in the utmost high end version of Range Rover. The radiator and door handles have also been outfitted with a unique finish and look. 20-inch multi-spoke diamond-turned alloy rims complete the Ultimate Edition’s aesthetical bliss.
Under the hood sits a 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 engine, producing 510 hp and 461 lb/ft of torque, which can shoot this Range Rover from 0-60 mph in an awe inspiring 5.9 seconds.
Each Ultimate Edition Range Rover will be crafted to its owners specifications. If you live in the US, you’re probably already out of luck in terms of procuring one, seeing as less than 50 will be available State side.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
