With a limit of just 40 vehicles, Land Rover has raised the ceiling on off-road luxury with the introduction of the £180,000 ($286,000) Holland & Holland Edition Range Rover.
Built on the Range Rover Autobiography Black platform, the addition of the Holland & Holland touches takes this vehicle to a whole new level. The Executive Class seating package in the long wheelbase car adds 7.3 inches of legroom and makes 17 degrees recline available to the rear seat passengers. Two individual fully adjustable seats are separated by an extended and re-designed centre console with electrically deployable walnut tables, integrated USB charging sockets, enhanced stowage and bespoke lighting.
The interior is upholstered with the softest tan and espresso leather hides, with precision leather detailing including Holland & Holland embroidery on the front seats. Even the sides of the transmission tunnel are trimmed in the same shade of leather. This is perfectly complemented by the sustainably-sourced French walnut veneer, subtly polished to resemble the oil-finished gunstocks for which Holland & Holland’s craftsmen have been famous since the company’s foundation in 1835. To mark this, their logo is inlaid into the front centre console. The car’s woodwork is made from a single huge piece of walnut to ensure that every veneer is perfectly matched.
Holland & Holland’s is famous for its engraving and that art is evident here with acanthus scroll on the internal door handles. The fascia letterbox panels are decorated with gunstock checkering and the exquisite engraving of the centre console panel has been inspired by Holland & Holland’s distinctive forend diamonds.
And of course no Holland & Holland Range Rover would be complete without a leather-trimmed aluminum loadspace cabinet for your £82,000 ($130,000) shotguns. Its espresso Alcantara-trimmed interior can be precisely fitted to safely transport the owner of the car’s pair of Holland & Hollands – although it is also removable when maximum luggage capacity is required.
Powered by your choice of either a 334 horsepower, 4.4-litre V8 diesel, or the 504 horsepower 5.0-litre supercharged gas-burning V8, the Holland & Holland Range Rover is the perfect vehicle to drive to your English manor for an afternoon of bird shooting.
