The £140,000-plus model is the latest offering from Land Rover’s Engineered To Order (ETO) division – now under the wing of John Edwards’ newly-created Individual Products Division – and is based on the new long-wheelbase 'L' derivative, see here.
The most luxurious and expensive production vehicle ever offered by Land Rover, the Range Rover Autobiography Black is designed to offer ‘an unmatched combination of luxury and design and all-terrain performance.’
Outside, the Autobiography Black gets extra chrome detailing around the front grilles, door handles and side ‘vent’ trims, as well as clear rear light clusters and black enamel badges. There are also two new exclusive-to-Autobiography Black wheel options: a seven-spoke 21-inch, and a 22in wheel with a high-gloss polished finish available from spring 2014.
Inside, the standard-fit Executive Class massage seats and front-to-rear centre console have been redesigned, incorporating electrically-operated tables, and there are leather coverings for the parcel shelf, door pillars, seat backs and ski hatch.
Buyers can choose from three exclusive colour combinations for the Autobiography Black at launch: Ebony/Lunar, Espresso/Tan and Dark Cherry/Ivory, the latter including a unique duo-tone seat. Lunar/Cirrus will follow in spring 2014, when a unique Poltrona Frau seat design in Navy/Ivory also becomes available.
The Autobiography Black will make its public debut at the Dubai International Motor Show on November 5.
