It has been revealed that an exceptionally luxurious Range Rover to rival the Bentley Bentayga is currently in the works.
While recently speaking with Auto Express, Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations managing director John Edwards revealed that the company is looking at offering an even more expensive variant of the car. The Range Rover lineup is currently topped by the long-wheelbase SV Autobiography which in the UK, just exceeds 160,000 pounds when fully configured.
“Our ceiling price is certainly higher than £160,000. It will definitely go further. Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and everyone accepts that.” Edwards when on to reveal that a new Range Rover model could reach the 200,000 pound mark which is tipped to be around where the upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV will cost.
When revealed, the new range-topping Range Rover model is expected to be offered with a number of new bespoke paint finishes as well as even more customisable interiors.
Further discussing the car, Edwards said “[the Bentley] recognises we have created a segment and it is flattery that Bentley and Rolls-Royce soon want to join in. If you look at what we have done to Range Rover over the last five years, we have stretched the breadth of the product, the commercial footprint.
“Five years ago we knew we could stretch it, but I am not sure we knew how far and we have surpassed our expectations. So I think it could stretch a bit further.”
