Land Rover has a tradition of creating luxury vehicles, including several that are regularly used to shuttle around the rich and famous. While these automobiles are typically restricted to city streets, soon you could see a unique Range Rover trekking to the top of mountains. The automaker recently introduced the Range Rover Long-Wheelbase Autobiography Black at the 2013 L.A. Auto Show, and the amped-up vehicle is capable of even some extreme off-road driving.
There are several new amenities that come along with the Autobiography Black, and the upgrades are not restricted to the driving capabilities. For additional comfort, the legroom in the backseat has increased by 7.3 inches, and the incline of the seats has been altered to allow more flexibility. Power sunshades and a panoramic sunroof are also included to give owners the perfect driving environment.
To match these new features, the Autobiography Black also has a long-wheelbase body that translates well to off-roading. That is the major difference between this special edition and the standard, short-wheelbase Range Rover. It also has a new grille and specially made wheels, which help enhance the appearance and functionality of the vehicle.
"The Range Rover Long-Wheelbase Autobiography Black is the latest step in our transformational journey that moves luxury to another level. This vehicle is an intensely design focused response to our customers' desire for more choice and exclusivity," said Gerry McGovern, the design direction and chief creative officer for Land Rover. "... Autobiography Black represents the pinnacle of desirability in the world of luxury inhabited by our Range Rover customers."
Of course, all of these extra features will cost you. The Range Rover Autobiography Black comes with a starting price of $185,000 - approximately $100,000 higher than the standard Range Rover. Only 100 of the models will be produced.
