The Range Rover enters its 10th anniversary year in 2012. Three new special editions were introduced today to celebrate this occasion. The models are the TDV8 Westminster, TDV8 Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography.
The new Range Rover Westminster Edition joins the line-up to replace the previous TDV8 Vogue and Vogue SE models. Going further than its predecessors, it comes equipped with a collection of additional features.
The exterior of the Westminster Edition is distinguished by the bright ‘Noble’ finish to the front grille and side vents, ‘Titan’ silver lower splitter bar and fog lamp bezels, 20 inch, ten-spoke alloy wheels and ‘Westminster’ badging. Opening the doors reveals illuminated treadplates and a cabin finished with luxury carpets and Grand Black lacquer trim elements, plus bright-finished pedal finishers. The front seats feature both heating and cooling functions and the in car entertainment system benefits from a 19 speaker, 1,200W harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system as well as Range Rover’s innovative Dual View infotainment screen.
The new Westminster Edition is powered by a 4.4 liter TDV8 engine linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The special edition is available in a choice of seven exterior colours, with five interior colour combinations. The standard equipment specification further includes an electric sunroof, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, Park Distance Control with rear-view camera, memory setting for the steering wheel, driver’s seat and rear-view mirror and a heated, leather trimmed steering wheel.
Bold design and ultimate luxury underpin the new Range Rover TDV8 Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography. Both benefit as standard from the Range Rover Design Pack, a collection of exterior styling features. The pack introduces new front and rear bumpers, ‘Titan’ silver front grille and side vent treatments and fog lamp surrounds, integrated stainless steel exhaust finishers and side skirts. These are complemented by 20 inch alloy wheels in Shadow Chrome.
On the inside it has the Range Rover Seat Style Pack. This features rear seats with recline and lumbar adjustment, heating and cooling functions and multi-adjustable aircraft-style headrests with wings for added support. The passenger “front seat away” function provides a simple control for adding extra rear legroom, while the front passenger seat itself benefits from a memory function than can store up to three different personalised settings.
Both versions gain the 19 speaker, 1,200W harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system and are fitted with illuminated treadplates. Seven exterior finishes are available, together with a range of interior colour and trim combination options. The TDV8 Autobiography retains its 4.4 liter engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, with the Supercharged Autobiography powered by the 5.0 litre V8 petrol unit with six-speed automatic gearbox.
The new Range Rover Special Edition models go on sale in March. The TDV8 Westminster Edition is £ 69,995. TDV8 Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography are £84,295 and £86,895 respectively.
