2013 Range Rover
Having seen a litany of spy shots, followed by official shots and a few initial details, the new L405-generation top-of-the-line Range Rover finally made its live debut at an exclusive start-studded event at the Royal Ballet School in Richmond, London.
Before last night’s bash, we had seen the new design and interior and were aware of the huge diet the luxury SUV had been on, shedding up to a whopping 420 kg thanks to its aluminum construction. Now Land Rover has revealed the full monte on its new flagship model.
Compared to a similarly equipped outgoing model, the US-spec 2013 V8 Range Rover is nearly 320 kg lighter than the model currently on sale.Sleeker, lower and longer, the new-and-improved model remains quintessentiually a Range Rover, albeit with a new jeweled grille and three non-functioning gills that have moved from the fenders to the doors and can be specified in different colors.
There are also 37 different body colors, a contrasting roof, eight alloy wheel designs, 17 interior color themes, three choices of veneer and several leather options to increase the customization options on the luxury SUV.
