Overfinch's latest Range Rover features extensive use of carbonfibre, veneer and leather; it demonstrates "British craftsmanship at its best"
19 December 2013

These are the first pictures of the 2014 Overfinch Range Rover. The Leeds-based firm will build just 100 units a year.

Overfinch claims its interpretation of the new Range Rover is the “world’s most luxurious SUV”. Prices start at £93,013 for models based on entry-level Vogue models.

New bodywork, including front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a roof spoiler are constructed from hand-laid carbonfibre, which Overfinch says is “in keeping with the Range Rover’s new weight-saving ethos”. 

The new front bumper houses Land Rover’s park sensors and cameras. Lacquered carbonfibre can be seen inside each of the cooling apertures.

A huge range of customisation options allows the customer to combine a range of carbonfibre and paint finishes. 

The cabin can be trimmed in a range of leather and hand-finished veneer options, and two seat designs are offered with differing stitching patterns.

Overfinch make the full Range Rover engine line-up available to customers, and offer additional tuning packs. The car carries Land Rover's warranty and all Overfinch parts are covered by an additional like-for-like warranty.

Overfinch boss, Kevin Sloane, said: “The designs and attention to detail of the all-new Overfinch Range Rover continue to build on our 40-year-old history of enhancing Land Rover vehicles.

“We have created unique, distinctive aspects for the current model - such as hand-laid carbonfibre body styling that simply cannot be found in any other Range Rover.

“Our niche clientele demands this level of attention to detail and it is a perfect example of British craftsmanship at its very best.”

Overfinch says prices are entirely dependant on specification and the range or custom options chosen.

Our Verdict

The fourth-generation Range Rover is here to be judged as a luxury car as much as it is a 4x4

I am probably not remembering correctly, but didn't Overfinch go bust recently?

It makes me laugh that this car is photographed parked outside a stately home. No self respecting aristo is going to buy one of these, far too..........new money.

How true Alex, how true, its like they are trying to hang on to an era of RR sales which doesn't exist anymore...albeit the Royal Family still have some (given to them and in very sober colours)
Its all more BECKINGHAM PALACE than Buckingham Palace these days!
As someone commented Overfinch did go bust, which is a shame as it was a local company to me which has made some awesome cars over the years, but I think the latest range will make it difficult for Overfinch to effectively differentiate themselves and therefore make a business case for themselves...in short Land Rover has grabbed Overfinch's business what with Autobiography and the supercharged engine. I mean installing a yankee engine is no longer needed, and it is going to take more than a few bits of tasteless carbon fibre to justify Overfinch's mark-up.

Overfinch Leeds is a mile away from me. It's heavy with gordy 1st generation RRS horrors, that seems to be the weapon of choice for beauty salon owners around here.

The seat belt seems to be missing it's tongue on the right hand side of the rear seat photo. I couldn't possibly buy a vehicle from a manufacturer who doesn't attend to the seat belt positioning prior to taking the marketing shots.

My understanding is that when you add bodywork, regardless of the material used, you add weight, so how exactly does this fit with RR's ethos of weight saving?
