2009 Range Rover Autobiography:
A new, high-specification ‘Autobiography’ model is to make a global debut at the British International Motor Show on July 22nd 2008. The Range Rover model line-up for 2009 will feature the most luxurious top of the range production Range Rover yet. Taking the name ‘Autobiography’, it replaces the model previously reserved for bespoke versions of the luxury 4×4.
John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director commented: “The new Autobiography derivative and additional 2009 model year features enhance what is already, the most complete luxury 4×4. Where better to showcase this than on our home soil at the British International Motor Show.”
The new flagship receives more leather upholstery than any Range Rover before. What’s more, this luxurious semi-aniline leather is from the very best hides, which, after minimum processing, will age over time to give the truly unique character.
The Autobiography’s facia, door casings, door bins, seats and centre console are all finished in leather, complementing the traditional interior wood. The steering wheel is leather-wrapped, the leather-topped facia has a softer, more luxurious feel, and even the floor mats are edged with leather.
The 2009 Range Rover Autobiography also offers new 20-inch diamond-turned twin-seven-spoke alloy wheels, new paint colours and an optional half wood steering wheel with matching gearshift insert.
Across the Range Rover line-up for 2009 there are new wheel styles, new exterior colours and optional wood and leather heated steering wheels. Satellite navigation and Hybrid TV will now be available as standard from HSE specification, and an exterior design pack featuring Supercharged grille, side vents, lights and stainless steel pedals will now be available on the TDV8 Autobiography which will be available from £72,995 on the road.
