Let’s get the chump change out of the way. £180,000 – that’s about $330,000 for those of you playing at home. The latest automotive effort from Range Rover in collaboration with British gunmaker Holland & Holland is enough to bring tears to any gun-toting soccer mum.
The Range Rover x Holland & Holland Autobiography Black is the product of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations, an engineering division dedicated to building bespoke high performance versions of flagship cars from the Jaguar and Land Rover range. It also marks the company’s most expensive Range Rover yet.
From the outside, the SUV stands out from the rest of the Rover pack with a custom metallic green hue alongside special edition badging. The interior is where you really see your money go to work though in the form of unwavering opulence.
Executive class seating allows the lankiest of fellows to go bush bashing in absolute comfort. Plush tan leather lines almost every surface and polished French walnut veneer that mimics Holland & Holland’s firearm stock sprawls the centre console from front to back.
The rear also gets walnut tables that deploy electronically incase your arms were tired from holding onto briefcases filled with cash. The door handles themselves are a work of art with exquisite engravings featuring the Holland & Holland moniker.
Of course you can’t have a gun-car collaboration without the gun part right? In the boot you will find a leather trimmed aluminium and carbon fibre cabinet designed specifically to house your most prized pair of hunting rifles. The guns themselves don’t come with the buy unfortunately.
Two power units for the car will be available: a 334bhp 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel or a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 with 503bhp. Only 40 examples will be made each year over a three year period so start saving.
