Special time for Range Rover
RANGE ROVER is marking 10 years of the current model with special editions called Westminster and Autobiography with the 4.4 litre V8 diesel engine and a Supercharged Autobiography with the 5-litre petrol V8. Westminster replaces the Vogue and is glossier than ever and now has a sunroof as standard. The Autobiography models are equally glitzy and have reclining rear seats. All three newcomers have 20-inch wheels. The Westminster is £69,995 and the Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography are £84,295 and £86,895 respectively. The company says the higher prices reflect the extra equipment. The Range Rover model was introduced in 1970 as a three-door luxury alternative to the Land Rover, with a 3.5 litre petrol V8 engine and a rubber utility swill-out floor. A five-door version followed and the Range Rover evolved into a luxury 4x4 alternative to a limousine. The third generation was introduced in 2002 and set new levels of luxury.
