Land Rover has teamed up with British gunmaker Holland & Holland to create its most luxurious model ever. It could be yours for £180k.
Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division has announced it is partnering with bespoke sporting rifle maker Holland & Holland to create the ultimate luxury SUV. The exclusive branded Range Rover Holland & Holland edition costs an astonishing £180,000.
Its based on the standard £140,000 long-wheelbase Range Rover Autobiography Black, which is stretched 200mm over the standard model to give generous rear legroom. SVO and Holland & Holland then set about creating the bespoke model with a range of luxury upgrades.
So what do you get for your money? Changes to the outside don’t extend beyond an exclusive green paintjob, a special grille, some chrome highlights and the gunmaker’s badging. It’s inside where all the action is.
Like the Black model, the Holland & Holland gets Executive Class rear seating, a luxurious two-seat layout which includes sculpted seats that can recline up to 17 degrees. SVO then adds electrically deployable walnut tables, USB charging points and a bespoke lighting system.
The seats themselves are trimmed in premium tan-coloured leather hides, embroidered with Holland & Holland detailing. The walnut trim about the cabin is polished to resemble the British gunmaker’s hunting rifles.
As we’ve seen in previous Range Rover Holland & Holland specials, its in the boot where the gunmaker’s influence is clearest. A leather-trimmed cabinet, designed to accommodate the brand’s bespoke rifles, slides out on a machined aluminium platform.
Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division only plans to build 40 of these per-year over three years. The car is available on special order only, making it the most exclusive Range Rover available today. It’s powered by either the 334bhp 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel, or the 503bhp 5.0-litre Supercharged V8.
