TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Range Rover marks model’s 10th anniversary with special edition models

Land Rover is celebrating the Range Rover's 10th year of production by releasing three special-edition models that focus on "further extending the luxury and high specifications that are at the core of the Range Rover brand."

The first model is the Range Rover Westminster Edition, which effectively replaces the TDV8 Vogue and Vogue SE models.

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, 10-spoke alloy wheels and the 'Westminster' badging. Interior treatments include illuminated treadplates, luxury carpets, Grand Black lacquer trim elements and bright-finished pedal finishers. The front seats feature both heating and cooling functions while the in-car entertainment system is comprised of a 19-speaker, 1,200W Harman/Kardon Logic7 surround sound system as well as Range Rover's innovative dual-view infotainment screen.

Still powered by the 4.4-liter TDV8 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Westminster Edition is available in seven exterior colors with five interior color combinations.

For the TDV8 Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography special edition models, both benefit from the Range Rover design pack, a "collection of exterior styling features that are seamlessly integrated to compliment the car's powerful appearance, without compromising its classic lines."

This Range Rover design pack's exterior features include new front and rear bumpers, 'Titan' silver front grille and side vent treatments, fog lamp surrounds, integrated stainless steel exhaust finishers, and 20-inch Shadow Chrome alloy wheels. Inside, the two special edition models get the Range Rover seat style pack, which 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 personalized settings. Both special edition models also receive the 19-speaker, 1,200W Harman/Kardon Logic surround sound system and the illuminated treadplates.

The TDV8 Autobiography is propelled by a 4.4-liter V8 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission while the Supercharged Autobiography is powered by a 5.0-liter LR-V8 petrol unit mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The three special edition Range Rover models will officially go on sale in March.
