During Pebble Beach weekend, Land Rover launched its most exclusive and most expensive model year, the 2011 Range Rover Autobiography Black 40th Anniversary Limited Edition.
Introduced to the world at “The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering,” one of many events that comprise the festival of automobilia that is the Monterey/Pebble Beach Councours weekend, the Autobiography Black is distinguished by its Barolo Black paint job, titan mesh front grille, new side vents, body color door handles, 20-inch diamond-turned 10-spoke wheels, and an Autobiography Black badge on the tailgate.
Inside, there’s a jet black interior accented with black laquer trim pieces. Customers can also opt for a jet black/ivory or jet black/pimento interior scheme if they so desire.
Other than these cosmetic changes, the Autobiography Black is no different from a fully-loaded Range Rover Supercharged. Under the hood is the same blown 5.0-liter V-8 good for the same 510-horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. Standard features include the vision assist package, which includes surround cameras and a blind spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control, 19-speaker, 1200-watt harman/kardon audio system, and more.
No word yet on pricing, but the tag should be higher than the regular Autobiography’s roughly $110,000 asking price.
