What goes well with a luxury SUV with a thumping supercharged V8 under the bonnet? Rubber floor mats? A tow bar perhaps? Or maybe a full sized spare tyre? Apparently none of the above according to Land Rover’s new in-house nutter division SVO. They’ve teamed up with famous gun producers Holland & Holland to create the most expensive Range Rover…. In the world.
Yes, this Range Rover certainly has Jeremy Clarkson in its sights. What SVO have done to create this ultimate Range Rover is they’ve taken a LWB Supercharged Range Rover, given it Exclusive pack seats, and a rather regal looking paint job. As part of the Exclusive Pack for Range Rovers, there’s no middle seat. Instead you get two individual thrones in the back that recline. In place of a middle seat is a great big slab of wood, leather, and fold out tables. Perfect for putting your glass of whiskey on.
Oh, and they’ve then put a couple of Holland & Holland guns in the boot that come in housed in leather, wood, aluminium, and carbon fibre. There’s some exquisite detailing too. Take the engraved metal trim on the door handles or the wood trim that matches Holland & Holland’s gunstocks. If you’re a fan of embroidery you’re in for a treat as there’s some in here too.
The cost for all this Britishness? £180,000 (NZ$365,000) for sir. And before you ask, no they don’t do hire purchase finance, or should that be (guns for) hire purchase finance? Only 40 SVO H&H will be made per year over three years, that’s a 120 in total.
