The new Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition will make its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

Two stand-alone electric rear seats enhance space and comfort for the rear passengers, making the Ultimate Edition the definitive chauffeur vehicle.

The addition of a rear console, including a machined aluminum laptop table and drinks chiller, plus two Apple iPads as standard, takes the Range Rover rear seat experience to new levels of luxury.

The luxury theme extends to the rear load space, with a yachting-inspired teak floor with metal and leather detailing.

The interior story is completed with high-end semi-aniline leather seating and Oxford leather on the door casings, dashboard top and steering wheel.

For the first time, Kalahari wood veneers are used on the fascia and door top rolls, with unique interior colorways of either dark cherry or Arabica available

Two new unique exterior colors, either Roussillon Red or Otago Stone, are available along with body-colored door handles, Dark Atlas radiator grille and side vents to create a sophisticated finish.

This Ultimate Edition is fitted with new 20" multi-spoke diamond-turned wheels, and unique tailgate badging.

Customers also have the option of an Exterior Design Pack and deployable side steps. The classic Range Rover color of Santorini Black will also be available as an exterior choice in some markets.

The V8 engine line-up includes the new 4.4-liter LR-TDV8 Diesel engine with a new eight-speed transmission incorporating Drive Select with Paddle Shift as standard. It combines 313hp with 516 lb/ft of torque while delivering even lower fuel consumption and 14% less CO2 emissions than its predecessor. The combined cycle fuel consumption of the new LR-TDV8 is just 25mpg US.

The 8-speed ZF automatic transmission tuned by Land Rover engineers to combine silky smooth shifting with rapid response and improved fuel economy, catapults the Range Rover from 0-60mph in a mere 7.5 seconds.

The LR-V8 5.0 Supercharged engine is also available delivering awesome power and torque, 510hp and 460 lb-ft, propelling the Range Rover from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds.

Both variants come with Land Rover's award-winning Terrain Response system, which optimizes the vehicle for virtually all on-road or off-road driving situations, with five different settings to suit different terrains including new Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control.

This Ultimate Edition was designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK. Exclusivity is assured as each vehicle will be built to customer order only. A total of 500 units will be produced and sold in over 20 markets globally. Pricing will be announced in individual markets later this year.
