Land Rover has announced two new additions to its Range Rover family – the new long wheelbase Range Rover that will debut at LA and Guangzhou motor shows and its Range Rover Autobiography Black edition that will debut at the Dubai motor show. This is their first Range Rover long wheelbase in 20 years and the new model increases legroom by 140mm for rear seat passengers to provide enhanced comfort and space (it’s also boosted the recline to 17 degrees with the exclusive seating package). The additional legroom is possible via a lengthened bodyshell in front of the rear wheels.
The Range Rover Autobiography Black adds even more refinement to the world’s finest luxury SUV, with a carefully crafted interior with subtle but distinctive exterior detailing and is appointed and finished with the highest quality leathers and materials. According to Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover, the new edition is the car brand’s “most luxurious specification yet. It epitomises sophisticated design with immaculate attention to detail.” It features a unique front grille and side vents along with distinguishable badging in black enamel and chrome. Signature rear lamps and auxiliary vents to the front feature a chrome accent finish to the tailgate. There are also two new wheel designs for the model, which are 7-spoke 21″ and a 22″ wheels with a high gloss polished finish, the latter of which will be available from Spring 2014. Inside there’s sumptuous leather seating that’s complemented with a massage function and bolsters with 18-way seat adjustability for the driver and front passenger. Also included is LED mood lighting, a leather-wrapped parcel shelf, tread plates that are illuminated with ‘Autobiography Black’ script, a rear centre console that includes electrically deployable tables covered in black leather with integrated USB charging sockets and cup holders, and chiller compartment that provides additional space for glasses and bottles. The First customer deliveries are expected in March of next year.
