Land Rover and British handmade gun maker Holland & Holland have collaborated to create the most expensive and luxurious Range Rover ever. The Holland & Holland Range Rover will be commissioned by the automaker’s newly established Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division.
The exclusive SUV is based on the top-end Autobiography Black variant and is powered either by the 339 PS (334.22 bhp) 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel engine or the 510 PS (502.82 bhp) 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol motor. SVO will build only 40 units of the exclusive model per year for the next three years.
Available in both standard and long wheelbase versions, the special edition model can be identified by the Holland & Holland Green exterior paint job. The grille is also finished in the same deep green shade and comes with chrome highlights. The Holland & Holland badges can be found on the lower accent door motifs and on the tailgate.
The cabin is upholstered in soft tan, and espresso leather hides including Holland & Holland embroidery on the front seats. The interior woodwork is made from a single piece walnut to ensure the veneers match perfectly and are polished to resemble the oil-finished gunstocks, a trademark of Holland & Holland’s handmade guns.
The LWB variant gets an Executive Seat package which offers two individual rear seats with extended centre console, electrically deployable walnut tables, integrated USB charging sockets, enhanced stowage and bespoke lighting.
The most significant feature however is the removable leather-trimmed aluminium loadspace cabinet in the boot which accommodates the owners pair of H&H guns.
The Holland & Holland Range Rover has a recommended retail price of £180,000 (around INR 1.75 crore).
