Your eyes will not deceive you. Here you will be able to find another camouflaged Range River model that was scooped when testing in UK. However, with the latest Range Rover model, the company has introduced a long wheelbase. The new model will be set for sale in 2013. The LWB Land Rover from Range Rover:
When Land Rover invented luxury 4 wheel drive segment back in 1970, it was not able to known how this amazing car will evolve into one of the world’s most iconic as well as successful luxury cars. Even the just replaced L322 model underestimated just how popular Range Rover would be. Currently, Land Rover is turning its attention to the rear passenger friendly RR.
This model is specially targeted at the Russian and Chinese market. This is mainly due to the can’t-buy-them-fast-enough thirst of the customers for luxury British cars. Moreover, the convention in these parts is chauffeured rather than driving oneself.
The latest L405 RR is also bigger in the back when compared to other models. Moreover, the new aluminum architecture as well as the slight stretch in the dimensions liberates an extra 120mm of rear leg space when compared to the present models. The ‘Pullman’ RR also gets 150mm of stretch in wheelbase, and swap the three-seater rear bench into two individual chairs.
Like the now-defunct Maybach, rear seats of the car are fully independent as well as electrically reclinable. According to the sources of CAR, the whole cabin of the new model is also considered to be more sumptuously appointed as well as open to further upholstery and trim options. This is taken from the Autobiography Edition.
Although the new model is provided with a hefty price tag of over £100,000 for the LWB Range Rover, it is available with V8 engines. It is also available in diesel as well as petrol form, until TDV6 diesel-hybrid will emerge in 2013.
Understanding the long-wheelbase Range Rover:
Most of the people remember the Land Rover dabbling with a long-wheelbase and Range Rover bodystyle before. This was back in 1992, where Land Rover offered an LSE car, which came with a very generous 203mm added chassis. The new model takes the famous 100-inch wheel base to 108 inches.
When it comes to the Range Rover model, the top spec engines made it into 1992 LSE, which is a 4.2-litre iteration of venerable Rover petrol V8 that put out 200bhp. However, due to the changing technology, the supercharged 5.0 liter v8 which is available in the new model is capable of pumping out 503bhp, which means 62 mph in 5.1 seconds.
