Range Rover Autobiography - In Car Technology | Part Two

The Autobiography programme also enables customers to mix and match carpet colours, door trim shades, steering wheel colours – including the use of two-tone wheels – door grab handles and a choice of leather seat insert hues. Other personalised touches include distinctive 'Autobiography' badges and a choice of 10 different sheepskin rugs in colour co-ordinated shades.

As befits such a distinctive interior, the in-car technology options developed for the Autobiography programme are designed to enhance the Range Rover's already comprehensive standard equipment. The twin screen DVD uses eight-inch screens mounted in the rear of the front seats and the system allows one passenger to watch television whilst the other enjoys a movie. When parked, an in-dash screen may also be activated, giving three-screen viewing.

For audiophiles, the Autobiography programme offers one of the finest sound systems available. Developed by harman/kardon especially for the Range Rover, the Logic 7 sound system has 14 speakers and sub-woofer tuned to match the Range Rover's internal acoustic characteristics.

Such is the attention to detail of the Autobiography programme that harman/kardon experts took over a year to tune the system. The result is almost professional sound studio quality. When the Logic 7 sound system is combined with the DVD, an Autobiography owner has a unique in-car entertainment system.

The Autobiography programme also offers personal protection options, including Supaglass. This high-tech glass coating prevents the glass from shattering in the event of vehicle attack or in the event of an accident. For customers who require greater protection, Land Rover offer a number of specially developed Range Rover conversions that offer a range of ballistic protection measures.

One of the major advantages of the Autobiography programme is that all the materials and technologies integrated into the Range Rover are, unlike many after-market conversions, fully engineered and 'signed off' by Land Rover engineers. This gives customers the security and peace of mind that everything used to create their Autobiography, has passed the same stringent durability and safety tests as normal Range Rover production components.
