Limited limited edition

World first, of sorts

Four-seat luxury

Shaken and chilled

The life aquatic


Mind you it's not just any Range Rover, rather a super limited edition model that may or may not be coming down under.

Dubbed the Autobiography Ultimate Edition, only 500 will be produced and sold in over 20 countries. We won't discover until early March 2011, when the Geneva Motor Show kicks off, whether Australia will be one of the lucky countries to receive this range-topping model that's been upgraded with a hand-crafted interior.

The tech highlight of the Ultimate Edition is the inclusion of two Apple iPads in the back of the front seats as standard. The laptop table (pictured above holding a keyboard) is made from machined aluminium and can be stowed underneath the rear armrest.

Land Rover claims that the inclusion of two iPads is a world first for a production vehicle, although buyers of the Hyundai Equus in the US gain a free Wi-Fi iPad for viewing their owner's manual.

The Ultimate Edition seats only two people in the rear, but they get individual electric seats cloaked in semi-aniline leather that retains much of the original skin's structure.

Between the rear seats is a chiller bin with receptacles for a bottle and glasses.

The boot receives a teak floor that's supposedly inspired by yachts.

Buyers have a choice of a 380kW/625Nm 5-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine or a 233kW/700Nm 4.4-litre turbo-diesel V8.
