Only 500 of the exclusive models will go on sale in the UK
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 Sport...ing 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.

Wow - it has electrically reclining rear seats.....??? The Granada Scorpio had those in 1985!

Does the limited edd mean you don't have to take the crap back to the dealer every week to be repaired?

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
