British gunmaker Holland & Holland has teamed up with Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations team to create the most outrageous Range Rover ever to leave its Solihull factory.
The latest Holland & Holland Range Rover follows a long line of collaborations between the two companies, both of which hold the Royal Warrant.
Land Rover is planning to make 40 of the special edition Range Rovers every year for the next three years, priced at a whopping £180,000 each.
So what do you get for your money? Well, the headline feature is the gun cabinet in the boot, designed to carry a pair of Holland & Holland shotguns – not included, unfortunately.
It sits on a deployable boot floor, engineered from lightweight aluminium and carbonfibre yet strong enough to take heavy loads, in case “owners wish to change their footwear or stop for a brief picnic,” says Land Rover.
Managing director of JLR Special Operations, John Edwards:
“The whole SVO team is very proud of this car, a bespoke design, which perfectly meets the very particular needs of Holland & Holland’s customers. This shows the huge potential of SVO, which encapsulates both off- and on-road performance as well as luxury and craftsmanship.”
The Holland & Holland Range Rover is based on the Autobiography Black, which itself starts at £143,400. Buyers get a choice of the 339hp 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel, or the 510hp 5.0-litre supercharged petrol.
It’s finished in a unique metallic green paint colour, while the interior is upholstered with soft tan and espresso leather hides – including Holland & Holland embroidery on the front seats.
The Range Rover’s woodwork is made from a single piece of walnut, 1,500mm long by 500mm wide, polished to resemble Holland & Holland’s oil-finished gunstocks.
Rear seat passengers in the Holland & Holland Range Rover should be more than satisfied as the standard long wheelbase adds an extra 186mm of legroom and seats that recline by up to 17 degrees.
The two individual rear seats are fully adjustable and complemented by a larger, re-designed centre console with electrically deployable walnut tables, integrated USB charging sockets and bespoke lighting.
