Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division has announced it is partnering with bespoke sporting rifle maker Holland & Holland to create the ultimate luxury SUV.
It is based on the standard £140,000 long-wheelbase Range Rover Autobiography Black, which is stretched 200mm over the standard model to give generous rear legroom.
From the exterior, the changes are subtle, the only clues being its color — a unique shade of green — and color-matched front grille.
On the inside, it’s a different story. The cabin is wrapped in tan and espresso leather hides and embroidered with the Holland & Holland name.
The center and rear consoles are finished in hand-matched French Walnut veneer; even the door handles feature hand engravings.
In the rear two passengers can recline in front of individual televisions, and simply press a button to activate or retract matching walnut tables.
However, it’s behind the rear passengers where the biggest difference lies. Holland & Holland are makers of some of the world’s best shotguns and the owner of this car will find a pair in their own specially designed leather-trimmed aluminum case in the boot.
The case sits on a sliding platform built from carbon fiber and aluminum and finished in walnut veneer and leather that has been designed to be load-bearing. It’s the perfect place to sit for an impromptu picnic during the hunt or simply when traveling point to point.
Only 40 Holland & Holland Range Rovers will be built a year for the next three years and each one comes with a guide price of £180,000.
The car is available on special order only, making it the most exclusive Range Rover available today. It’s powered by either the 334bhp 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel, or the 503bhp 5.0-litre Supercharged V8.
