Special Edition Range Rovers Commemorate Decadent Decade

Special-Edition-Range-Rovers-Commemorate-Decadent-Decade Few designs are so well executed that an automaker would choose to continue production for a decade.

Land Rover‘s Range Rover makes that cut and to celebrate the achievement of its flagship SUV, the Tata-owned British marque announced two new trim levels, the Westminster and Autobiography, in celebration of the SUV’s 10th anniversary.

The Range Rover Westminster Edition replaces the previous Vogue trim. Beginning with the exterior, it receives a choice of seven paint colors, a bright-finished front grille and side vents, a silver lower splitter bar and fog lamp bezels, and 20-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels. Much attention went into the interior.

Features include including five color combinations, bright-finished pedals, illuminating treadplates, and an entertainment system featuring a 19-speaker, 1,200 watt Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 surround sound set up, among others. Power is delivered from a refined turbodiesel 4.4-liter TDV8 mated to an eight-speed transmission.

Next, the special edition Range Rover Autobiography and the Supercharged Autobiography feature a front-and-rear bumper styling enhancement that retains the Range Rover’s classic lines. The Autobiography gets 20-inch alloy wheels finished in “Shadow” chrome. Rear passengers enjoy reclining seats with  lumbar adjustment, heat and cool functions and adjustable headrests with wings for added comfort on long trips.

While the Autobiography shares the same power plant as the Westminster, the Supercharged Autobiography packs a supercharged 5.0-liter LR-V8 engine with a 6-speed gearbox.

The TDV8 Westminster Edition is costs just under $110,400. The TDV8 Autobiography is sold at $133,000 and finally just over $137,000 for the Supercharged Autobiography. All models will be available in March, though only to European customers.
