The Range Rover semicentennial is well under way, and Land Rover is rolling out the anniversary editions to celebrate the iconic—and prototypical—SUV, which appeared in 1970.
No surprise, then, that at about the halfway point in the year Land Rover announced a trio of 50th limited-edition Range Rover variants. Two of the special edition SUVs are Autobiography trim-level variants. They’re both sporting sticker prices that reflect this top tier of cosmetic options from Land Rover. One of them you may’ve seen before, since Land Rover revealed it a few weeks ago.
The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic Black Edition is the most dramatic of the lot. It’s outfitted with the Land Rover supercharged V8, which is tweaked to deliver 557 horsepower. It’s given a coat of Santorini Black Metallic paint, and comes with 22” rims with shadowy brake calipers. The nose features glossy Narvik Black components—including the grille—and there are illuminated rocker treads that broadcast the edition. Inside the cabin, darkness also rules: ebony upholstery, and black trim and accents.
Unlike the shorter-wheelbase Dynamic Black Edition, The Range Rover Fifty—which we covered earlier in the month—is offered in both long-wheelbase and standard-wheelbase configurations. Its V8 delivers 518 HP, and it is decked out with special badging, including a console plaque that details the number in the production series of 1970 examples. It may be ordered in a series of Heritage colors that recall the origins of the model.
The last in the trio is the HSE Westminster Edition, which gets 518 HP out of an optional V8, or 395 out of an inline 6-cylinder that’s helped out a bit by a mild hybrid system. It features a fridge in the console and walnut trim, and may be optioned with seven-spoke, 21” rims.
