Limited limited edition

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.

World first, of sorts

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.

Four-seat luxury

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.

Shaken and chilled

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

The life aquatic
