Luxury off-roader to hit forecourts

A firm that specialises in modifying Range Rovers has joined up with renowned gun manufacturer Holland and Holland to produce a luxury version of the 4x4.

Overfinch is working with the prestigious London-based gunmaker to deliver a limited run of special editions based on the Range Rover Autobiography.

The unique 503bhp supercharged TDV8s will be launched at Holland and Holland's own shooting grounds in late September.

Daryl Greatrex, managing director of Holland & Holland, said: "Holland & Holland is globally synonymous with both luxury and supreme functionality.

"To look at, to handle and shoot with a Holland & Holland is to appreciate 174 years of using the best craftsmanship and technology to make things work supremely well and look even better.

"It's 10 years since we had a Holland & Holland Range Rover and we decided that working with Overfinch was the only way to do it this time."

Neil Underwood, chief operating officer of Overfinch, added that 100 fortunate customers will get the chance to experience a Range Rover featuring levels of luxury approaching that of a Bentley.
