Overfinch Range Rover LWB revealed
The Overfinch Range Rover LWB is the brand’s most expensive and exclusive Range Rover build ever – it can be yours from $370,000.
FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS British tuning company, Overfinch, has been “redefining the legendary range rover, setting new standards of luxury, performance and styling,” or so the company’s vision statement goes… but the company has done just that with the Range Rover Long Wheelbase, reimagining it to become its most expensive build ever – £200,000, or about $370,000.
Revealed at the recent Salon Privé – the British Supercar Show and Concours d’Elégance 2014, Overfinch says its Overfinch Range Rover LWB isn’t designed for drivers, rather for those who like to be driven…
As such, it features a raft of elements aimed at appealing to just such a buyer, like an automated, sliding floor space in the boot, as well as bespoke interior and exterior touches.
“The unique loadspace floor brings the owner’s luggage forward for collection once the tailgate is opened. The power sliding floor is finished in Bridge of Weir leather and aluminium runners, replacing traditional carpets,” a statement read.
“For the launch vehicle, veneers handcrafted in Piano Black with Mother-of-Pearl inserts are the dominant feature of a refined and elegant cabin.
“Selection of the Mother-of-Pearl inserts is a rigorous process involving skilled craftsmen eye matching every piece with the natural beauty remaining untouched, to create a striking impression evoking different reflections depending on the light.”
Painted in Santorini Black, the Overfinch Range Rover LWB package includes hand-laid carbon fibre to the front and rear bumpers and roof spoiler, and an all-new grille. It sits on 22-inch Equus forged-alloy wheels.
Beyond the cosmetic, a new stainless steel exhaust system creates a “sophisticated, characteristic engine note”. Butterfly flaps can be opened in the exhaust system by touching a Bluetooth-controlled button to let the thing growl louder.
Overfinch Chairman, Kevin Sloane, said: “For the first time, the larger Range Rover is being used as a chauffeuring vehicle and our interpretation sets a new benchmark of exclusivity.
“The Overfinch LWB is in direct response to growing demand aimed specifically at global, ultra-high net worth customers and is the most expensive we have ever produced.
“We’ve given careful consideration and perfectly executed additional high value features to significantly increase comfort levels.
“The power sliding loadspace floor is a prime example of the extra touch of refinement that chauffeured individuals will enjoy.” Oh to be rich, eh.
