Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Land Rover have just announced the 2013 Range Rover Long Wheelbase (LWB) model which will debut later next month at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and the 2013 Guangzhou Motor Show. Along with this (LWB) model also comes along a new top-end ‘Autobiography Black’ model.

2013 Range Rover Long Wheelbase
The Range Rover LWB gets an additional 140mm of rear seat legroom.

Deliveries of both models commence in March 2014, and as far as an Indian introduction is concerned, Land Rover say that USA and China will be the key markets for the Range Rover LWB.

Range Rover LWB Highlights:

  1. Body shell has been lengthened just in front of the rear wheels resulting in an extra 140mm of rear seat legroom.
  2. Rear seats can be customized as executive bucket seats, or as a rear bench. With the buckets, seats can be reclined to 17 degrees (which is 8 degrees more than the standard Range Rover).
  3. Power door blinds and panoramic sunroof are standard features on the Range Rover LWB.
  4. ‘L’ badge located near the front wheel arch identifies this model.
  5. It will be available in Vogue, Vogue SE, Autobiography and Autobiography Black, while a hybrid will be added next year.

Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said –

With the addition of the Range Rover long wheelbase to our portfolio of luxury SUVs, customers can now choose a vehicle that offers superior levels of interior space and comfort to compete in a market dominated by saloon cars up until this point. The Range Rover Autobiography Black is our most luxurious specification yet. It epitomises sophisticated design with immaculate attention to detail. The subtle, elegant and luxurious finishing touches combine with a first class experience for both driver and passengers to deliver new levels of exclusivity to our customers.
