Does it get any more British than this? Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations have teamed up with Holland & Holland to produce the most luxurious and expensive Range Rover ever built.
As demand grows from customers for exclusivity and bespoke products, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is limiting production of this new car, which is based on the Autobiography Black edition, to only 40 cars per year for a maximum of three years. The Holland & Holland Range Rover is both the most luxurious and the most expensive model to date – coming in at a cool £180,000.
There is a fair amount of bang per buck, however. The car has engraving around the interior door handles, Holland & Holland badges on the door sills and tailgate, the softest espresso and tan leather imaginable for the seats, and even more leg room than usual. Not only that, but the rear seats recline, allowing for a gentle nap post an arduous day on the peg.
If napping isn’t on the agenda, there are integrated USB chargers and walnut tables upon which one can rest one’s Macbook Pro, whilst researching which gun to buy to place into the custom built, leather-trimmed aluminium loadspace cabinet, complete with the Holland & Holland logo, which has been designed especially for this car. It is not only removable when maximum luggage capacity is required, but the sliding floor it uses is strong enough to sit on.
As if that wasn’t quite enough, precision leather detailing either side of the transmission tunnel and Holland & Holland embroidery on the seats is teamed with the logo, inlaid into the centre console. Swathes of walnut adorn the car, each cut from a single piece.
The Holland & Holland Range Rover is available with two engines:
334BHP 4.4-litre SDV8 (Diesel)
503BHP 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged (Petrol)
Daryl Greatrex, managing director of Holland & Holland, commented: “This project represents two great British brands working together to produce a car that perfectly represents our shared brand values. Stunning form and perfect functionality unite in a car that is supremely fit for purpose.”
