2017 – RANGE ROVER LONDON & MANHATTAN EDITION BY OVERFINCH
How can a Range Rover stand above a Bentley? For this we must remember when a few months ago the Land Rover unveiled the Range Rover SVAutobiography for the 2017 line of luxury all-terrain. The collaboration between the SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) division and the Autobiography line resulted in the most powerful and luxurious Range Rover in the history of the brand, thanks to the combination of its performance and interior excellence. Now if we take as base model the Range Rover SVAutobiography and we give a nice touch, we have a Range Rover so well equipped in its dynamics and luxury that it surpasses Bentley’s own Bentayga, the most expensive production SUV there is in terms of price. This is what the Overfinch Range Rover London Edition and Manhattan Edition have to offer to justify its high cost.
This is a pair of one-off, ie there will be only one unit for each of the editions, which makes the customer owner of a single vehicle. The exterior has been well retouched with carbon fiber by the preparer: new bumper, main grille, air intakes and rear spoiler. Both are equipped with 22-inch wheels, which differ in design depending on the body tone of the unit: Manhattan combines the Overfinch Equus wheels with the black tone, while the London combines the Tora wheels with the blue outside tone called Balmoral Blue. It is in the cabin where we will really find the reason for this high price, since the inserts in aluminum and carbon give way to the installation of handmade wooden slides and decorated with motifs characteristic of each of the cities, such as its skyline and emblematic buildings, hence the name of each unit. This eccentric and luxurious cabin has installed over 5,500 walnut veneer blades to create these unique pieces inspired by Art Deco. It took a total of 250 hours of work in each vehicle to choose, carve and install each of them, presenting a surprising result. The comfort of the interior is completely guaranteed since it is based on the extended body and has two individual seats in the rear, where all the luxury and comfort is concentrated. Underneath the hood hides the 5.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine that produces 550 hp and 680 Nm of maximum torque, the same used by the Range Rover SVR, which comes coupled with an eight-speed ZF transmission and total system traction supported by the system Dynamic Response. This luxury sporting terrain is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.4 seconds. The Overfinch Range Rover London Edition is now available in the showroom that the preparer has in London, whose label marks 250,000 pounds, about 1,000,000 reais. This puts the model 72,000 pounds (290,000 reais) more expensive than the BentaygaBentayga.
2017 – RANGE ROVER SVAUTOBIOGRAPHY DYNAMIC
After 4 years on the market, it’s time for a facelift for the Range Rover 2017. The main changes are in the front where the three-bar grille has been replaced by another in the shape of a bee house. The front bumper was also revised, with new air intakes, and the antinebline lights disappeared. In addition, the new Range Rover 2017 comes loaded with technological innovations including advanced semi-automatic driving. Within Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) we find different levels of assistance. In the standard, there are technologies such as adaptive cruise control, speed limiter, unintentional shift warning and automatic emergency braking system, among others. In the ‘Drive Pack’, the most prominent is the traffic signal recognition system and the intelligent speed limiter, which recognizes the signals and adjusts the speed according to the indications. On a higher scale, we find the ‘Drive Pro Pack’ with the blind spot assistant and rolling range maintenance, which makes minor corrections to the steering wheel if the car crosses the white lines of the track. The Advanced Tow Assist, which allows you to pull a trailer accurately and the Low Traction Launch, with driving mode selector for surfaces such as grass, snow or ice, are other highlights of the new Range Rover.
Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic: the most powerful
For the most demanding, the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic arrives, the most powerful production model ever presented by Land Rover, as it shares the same engine with the Range Rover Sport SVR: a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 capable of delivering 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque thanks to a recalibration. Thanks to this and the eight-speed ZF transmission that the propulsion system is associated with, it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, according to the British mark, in 5.1 seconds, with a top speed of 225 km / h. In addition, the suspension has been revised to offer maximum comfort and yield: its ground height is 8 mm lower than the standard model. SVAutobiography Dynamic has two driver-centric technologies, with the aim of improving control over the vehicle. On the one hand, Dynamic Response, which improves the handling of the vehicle and comfort on board, and for this, the system controls the front and rear axles independently, which according to Land Rover, improves agility at low speed and high stability, with greater accuracy in direction. On the other hand, Adaptive Dynamics monitors the vehicle’s movements 500 times per second in response to driver actions and changes in road surface to provide greater control. In terms of aesthetics, the new Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic features unique exterior styling features such as the hood trim, grille, front bumper and version logo. Customers can choose between 21- and 22-inch alloy wheels, the first Range Rover being available with Brembo technology-based red calipers. Inside, we find leather seats with contrasting stitching with four unique colors, among others. In addition, the exhaust pipes have been optimized to increase the sound potential of your V8 engine.
