Limited Edition Range Rover Holland&Holland by Overfinch with a Year's Supply of Booze Feels Just Like Home
Land Rover customizer Overfinch has teamed up with British sportgun and rifle maker Holland & Holland to create a limited production Ranger Rover. Based on either the 5.0-litre 503HP Supercharged or TDV8 diesel versions of the new 2010 MY Range Rover, the Holland & Holland features a raft of exterior and interior enhancements. On the outside the special Range gets 20-inch alloys (22's are optional) fitted with all season Mud & Snow tyres, special cast exhaust outlets and various tidbits from Overfinch's depot such as the headlamp and tail light treatments and the bumper trims.
Buyers can choose from four unique shades including Holland & Holland's Tintern Green and a two-tone paintwork, similar to that of a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
But it's the interior that makes this version special. For starters, all Holland & Holland Overfinch vehicles will be strict four-seaters as the cars get a unique center console with an integrated refrigerator and a storage compartment, which fits between the individual rear seats.
The entire cabin including the seats, doors, upper and lower dash board, centre and rear consoles and even the cubby box lid, have been dressed in top-grade leathers with contrasting stitching. According to Overfinch, it takes over 150 man hours just to trim the car while if buyers select the optional aviation-style quilted leather or Alcantara headlining, it takes even longer.
Being a Range Rover and everything, Overfinch trimmed the interior with a thirty one piece wood veneer kit that is available in the choice of Olive Ash Gloss, European Burr Walnut with special diamond pattern inlay, Matt Gunstock Walnut and Piano Black Lacquer with silver inlays.
Moving towards the rear, the Range Rover's boot gets a bespoke 'cupboard' - more like your great, great grandma's cabinet- hand-crafted in veneers to match the interior woodwork. It comes with three drawers fitted to carry eight further matching Holland & Holland crystal tumblers and flutes, shotguns, a cleaning kit for them as well as cartridges and the bag in which to carry them.
Production will be limited to 100 units annually with prices starting from £120,894 (about €130,000 or $196,000 US) for export, and £139,650 OTR in the UK.
If it makes you feel any better -for the price, that is, Overfinch said that it will replenish all six types of drinks (Pol Roger Champagne, Balvenie single malt whisky, Hendrick's single batch gin, Ivan the Terrible luxury vodka and Willow Spring Water), which are housed in the center console, for a whole year.
