Latest special editions of the Range Rover celebrate 10 years of the current car
7 March 2012

Land Rover is celebrating 10 years of the current-generation Range Rover with three new special editions, which have been shown at the Geneva motor show. They are likely to be a final hurrah for the current car, as an all-new Range Rover will be launched this summer.

The Range Rover Westminster edition (pictured) replaces the 4.4 TDV8 Vogue and Vogue SE models. The model will go on sale in March, priced from £69,995. It gets a special ‘Noble’ finish to the front grille and side vents, plus new 20in alloys and special Westminster badging.

Inside, it gets special carpets and Grand Black trim, plus an upgraded stereo system and heated and cooled seats. Seven exterior colour choices are offered alongside five interior trim themes.

The 4.4 TDV8 Autobiography and 5.0 V8 Supercharged Autobiography specials get the Range Rover Design Pack as standard, which includes new front and rear bumpers, a ‘Titan’ theme to the front grille and special 20in alloys finished in Shadow Chrome.

Inside, these two models get the Range Rover Seat Style pack as standard. This means the rear seats are heated and cooled, and can recline and feature lumbar adjustment. The front passenger seat can also be pushed forward using the ‘front seat away’ function to aid rear legroom.

The TDV8 version of this special edition costs from £84,295, with the Supercharged model coming in at £86,895.

Oh dear, the marketing people have been at it again! What the hell is a 'Noble' finish? Is it made up of broken clutch plates or something........?

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

Despite crisis, petrol prices and new fool taxes against power in Italy I saw a couple of brand new 5.0 V8 Supercharged this weekend, while in the last months every big and expensive German SUV struggles here...so despite new model coming Range still seems to retain his appeal. It's always a car in its own league but I don't see the point of these specials...

My old Honda jazz had the " front seat away" feature using a little lever by the headrest. Honda called them magic seats and it was very useful but it was also a standard feature on a 10 k car. Given i assume this is a button for the electric seats not sure this should be listed as a luxury feature.

I learnt to drive at the age of 9 years - in a genuine Landy in the fields of our neighbours farm in the Yorkshire dales. Sweating to get the handbrake off and trapping my fingers in the button in the process! ..Begger the thought of close on 90K for the great grandchild. Cripes I could have bought the 400 acre farm for that!!

It is the Queens Jubilee year my friend - so anything goes!! watch others follow suit like mini calling it the HM JUBBLY to go along with their other recent sloan square etc names and maybe Toyota can find something to hang on one of their creations running out of UK factories - like Jacks Union ( or Onion)...

Still think the first version of the current Range Rover was the best. Clean, simple, stunning interior, it was really iconic. Cannot believe subsequent facelifts. They managed to spoil it with LED's, horrible fussy detailing, and the interior got tarted up to a negative degree. Cant argue with the engineering, the diesel especially, but the simplicity and subtlety of the styling got lost. The same happened with Discovery as well. The Evoque looks good, but dare I say, still verging on the bling.

You only have to look at all the property programs on the TV to see that "bling" with lots of little twinkly lights everywhere is fashionable nowadays, sadly.

I do like the Vouge, it will be a shame to see this model go even though it has become rather bling i still like it, something i dont like though is the depreciation! WOW 10,000km on a supercharged V8 one and it looses almost a $100k!
