Birmingham Post - - NEWS - Mike Lock­ley Fea­tures Staff

THE world’s most lux­u­ri­ous Range Rover, worth well over £200,000, has been handed to the boss of a War­wick­shire polo club.

Dr Dal­las Burston, owner of Southam’s Dal­las Burston Polo Club, has taken pos­ses­sion of a be­spoke ve­hi­cle that even comes with its own cham­pagne flutes.

He worked with Soli­hull deal­er­ship Lis­ters Land Rover and Jaguar Land Rover’s Spe­cial Ve­hi­cle Op­er­a­tions Divi­sion on the specifics him­self. It is, he says, one of a kind, un­matched any­where in the world.

The highly per­son­alised 5-litre V8 su­per­charged Range Rover Au­to­bi­og­ra­phy LWB fea­tures:

Ma­jor Car­ney, direc­tor of op­er­a­tions for the Dal­las Burston Group, said: “Dr Burston owns a wide col­lec­tion of cars from classic to mod­ern day.

“When the chance to work with the Spe­cial Ve­hi­cles divi­sion came up, it was a unique op­por­tu­nity.

“We have de­signed a ve­hi­cle for the Dal­las Burston Polo Club which it­self has not only been re­branded, but is also un­der­go­ing a multi-mil­lionpound de­vel­op­ment project to build ho­tels and leisure fa­cil­i­ties at its War­wick­shire site.

“This project pro­vided the per­fect blank can­vas to cre­ate some­thing unique and un­ri­valled to take out and pro­mote the club. The whole project was in­cred­i­bly ex­cit­ing, tak­ing an idea from a de­sign sheet to the fin­ished ar­ti­cle. It has far ex­ceeded our ex­pec­ta­tions.

“We wanted a ve­hi­cle that was a real head turner and that’s ex­actly what we’ve got in this car.

“There are so many talk­ing points on this ve­hi­cle – it’s a real wow!”

Lis­ters Land Rover brand direc­tor, An­thony Hope added: “Lis­ters is very proud to have de­vel­oped the kind of client re­la­tion­ship where our cus­tomers have enough faith to work with us on such a sig­nif­i­cant and im­por­tant project. We are very pleased to build a new re­la­tion­ship with The Dal­las Burston Group.

“This has been an un­ri­valled ex­pe­ri­ence for any mo­tor dealer.”
