New Car: 2012 Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition

Meet the ultimate Range Rover – a £120,000 ultra-luxurious off-road limousine with a host of extras, including a pair of Apple iPads!

The Autobiography Ultimate Edition will debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, where potential owners can try out what will be the most luxurious and expensive car the British brand has ever made.

The iPads are integrated into special holders behind the front seats, giving rear passengers access to movies, E-mail and the Internet. Meanwhile, the rear bench has been removed completely. In its place, two standalone heated electric seats have been installed for limousine-like passenger comfort.

Up front, the centre console has been extended to include a machined aluminium laptop table and refrigerated drinks cabinet. And customers will be able to choose from a wide range of bespoke finishes for the palatial interior.
All the major contact points, including the steering wheel, dashboard and door linings, are swathed in soft-touch leather, and there’s a choice of wood veneers to cover the rest of the cabin surfaces.

Not even the boot has escaped the luxury treatment, with the standard carpet floor replaced by a yacht-style teak wood finish with metal handles. To set the Ultimate Edition apart from the rest of the range, there are two unique colour schemes – Roussillon Red and Otago Stone – and the car rides on 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels.

Customers can also choose a Design pack for added visual impact. This includes new side vents and a honeycomb-style grille. You can even opt for deployable side steps to make climbing aboard more dignified!

There are two V8 engines available, one petrol and one diesel, but both come mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The supercharged 5.0-litre petrol takes the Range Rover from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds, while the 4.4-litre oil-burner returns more than 30mpg.

Only 500 of the bespoke Ultimate Editions will be built. Prices haven’t been confirmed, but insiders have told us it will start from around £120,000.For more details click here.
