So, you want to buy a Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography only to find that it’s not quite luxurious enough for you. Well, for the uber-picky, the automaker is launching a new Holland & Holland version of its large people hauler to scratch that itch for an insanely luxurious rig with some off-road credentials.
From the moment you approach the Range Rover Holland & Holland Edition, you know this is a special rig thanks to its Holland & Holland badges and body-colored door handles and front grille.
While the outside may take a little looking to see the special bits, the interior is chock-full with special updates. In here, you’ll find specially engraved brightwork with Holland & Holland’s signature acanthus scroll, a special dashboard finisher with a diamond pattern similar to that used on the fore end of Holland & Holland rifles and shotguns, an exclusive espresso and tan cabin, branded stitching on the seats, exclusive floor mats, Holland & Holland lighted trim plates, rear executive seating with 17 degrees of recline, and wood-trimmed, electrically-deployed try tables.
Also included in this package is a locking, leather gun case designed to hold two Holland & Holland guns.
Being based on the Range Rover SVAutobiography, this rig uses a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine that cranks out 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. This potent powerplant mates to an eight-sped ZF-sourced transmission that delivers power to all four wheels. This results in a 0-to-60 time of just 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph.
The 2016 Range Rover Holland & Holland edition will hit showrooms in the spring of 2016 with a starting price of $244,500—a $45,005 increase over the standard Range Rover SVAutobiography. Land Rover will offer just 30 examples of this special model here in the U.S.
