15 September 2009

Land Rover has launched a limited edition Range Rover Sport Autobiography at the Frankfurt motor show.

Only 500 of the models will be made and they will be available with either the 3.6-litre TDV8 engine or the 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged models. Exclusive features include two-tone leather interiors, a new grille, air vents, 20-inch diamond finished alloys and a new body kit.

Land Rover is introducing electronically-controlled reclining rear seats, which are aimed at its customers who are chauffeur driven.

John Edwards, managing director Land Rover UK, said: “With August sales up 11.6 per cent against the same period last year, we are now starting to see early signs of stability in the UK market.

"We're therefore convinced that one of the best ways to help keep things moving is to excite potential customers with new and improved vehicles. Our range for 2010 is without doubt our strongest ever, and early signs show that these new products are receiving an outstanding reception in the marketplace.”

The new Range Rover range goes on sale in January 2010 and prices will be announced closer to the time of release.

By the sticking out bottom front spoiler this will be known as the Range Rover a Fat Lip edition. Did someone punch the designer in the gob for inspiration? The LR gaffer needs the Fat Lip edition in Europe where August sales were down 10% YoY in August.
