Land Rover itself liked that idea, so it teamed up with British gun maker Holland & Holland to offer a special-edition Range Rover full of the bespoke touches one normally associates with handcrafted firearms.
A Holland & Holland Range Rover made a splash on Top Gear a few seasons back, impressing the show’s irascible hosts with its built-in liquor cabinet. That car was built by tuner Overfinch, though, while this one is a factory job from Land Rover’s newly minted Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).
Based on the already-posh Range Rover Autobiography Black model, the Holland & Holland edition features a gun cabinet lined in espresso-colored Alcantara that rests on a specially-designed moveable floor made from aluminum and carbon fiber, and finished in wood veneer and leather.
The Holland & Holland treatment can be added to either a standard-wheelbase or long-wheelbase Range Rover, the latter with available individual reclining rear seats. The interior is redone with electrically-deployed walnut tables, USB charging ports, and additional storage cubbies (for ammo?).
Details like wood veneer trim that matches the stocks of Holland & Holland guns, embroidery, and engraved door handles class things up even more.
In contrast to the lavish interior, the only real exterior change is a unique green paint color and matching grille that makes the Holland & Holland Range Rover look like it just drove out of the green-tinted world of the The Matrix.
Two V8 engines will be offered: a 510-horsepower supercharged gasoline mill and a 4.4-liter turbodiesel with 339 hp.
It appears Land Rover will only offer the Holland & Holland Range Rover in the U.K., at a staggering price of 180,000 pounds (about $285,000 at current exchange rates). Only 120 examples will be built.
