The Ultimate Range Rover

Factory-fresh Autobiography Ultimate Edition coming to Geneva.

Land Rover is getting ready to drop their priciest model ever at this year’s Geneva Motor Show in March—the Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition, scheduled to go on sale for around $210,000. (Before your eyes bug out, though, that’s the price of the car in its home market of Britain, where cars cost more than they do here.)

Only 500 examples will be made, each one built-to-order based on the buyer’s personal preferences. The biggest changes are in the back, where the gang at Land Rover have replaced the usual second row bench seat with twin captain chairs, separated by a wood-and-metal console that contains a fold-out aluminum table and a refrigerator; twin iPads fit in the backs of the front-row seats. Teak wood covers the cargo floor in back, just like the rear deck of a yacht (or the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe).

The Ultimate Edition’s standard engine is a 4.4 liter diesel V8 that we don’t get here (too bad—its 516 lb-ft of torque sound perfect for this whip), but there’s an option for Land Rover’s 503 horsepower, 461 lb-ft supercharged 5.0 liter V8 as well. Both engines come hooked to an eight-speed automatic. Of course, as with many exclusive rides, the Ultimate gets its pick of two unique colors—Roussillon Red and Otago Stone. The car maker is only bringing this Range to 20 yet-unnamed markets; here’s hoping the U.S. is one of them! [Shout-out to NetCarShow!]
