To celebrate the current, third genreration Range Rover’s 10th birthday Land Rover have launched three special edition models for 2012 - The TDV8 Westminster, TDV8 Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography, which go on sale March 2012.

Range Rover Westminster Edition (£69,995)

The new Range Rover Westminster Edition joins the line-up to replace the previous TDV8 Vogue and Vogue SE models.

The exterior of the Westminster Edition is distinguished by the bright 'Noble' finish to the front grille and side vents, 'Titan' silver lower splitter bar and fog lamp bezels, 20-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels and 'Westminster' badging

Inside there are illuminated treadplates and a cabin finished with luxury carpets and Grand Black lacquer trim elements, plus bright-finished pedal finishers. The front seats feature both heating and cooling functions and the in car entertainment system benefits from a 19-speaker, 1,200W harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system as well as Range Rover’s Dual View infotainment screen.

The engine remains un-changed and is the same 4.4-litre TDV8 unit with eight-speed automatic transmission, we tested in our Range Rover Review - it is excellent.

The Range Rover Westminster Edition is available in a choice of seven exterior colours, with five interior colour combinations. The standard equipment specification further includes an electric sunroof, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, Park Distance Control with rear-view camera, memory setting for the steering wheel, driver’s seat and rear-view mirror and a heated, leather trimmed steering wheel.

Range Rover TDV8 Autobiography (£84,295) and Supercharged Autobiography (£86,895)

Benefit from Range Rover’s Design Pack, a collection of exterior styling features which features new front and rear bumpers, ‘Titan’ silver front grille and side vent treatments and fog lamp surrounds, integrated stainless steel exhaust finishers and side skirts. These are complemented by 20-inch alloy wheels in Shadow Chrome.

Inside these models feature the Range Rover Seat Style Pack. This comprises rear seats with recline and lumbar adjustment, heating and cooling functions and multi-adjustable aircraft-style headrests with wings for added support. The passenger "front seat away" function provides a simple control for adding extra rear legroom, while the front passenger seat itself benefits from a memory function than can store up to three different personalised settings.

Both versions gain the 19-speaker, 1,200W harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system and are fitted with illuminated treadplates. Seven exterior finishes are available, together with an extensive range of interior colour and trim combination options.

The TDV8 Autobiography retains its 4.4-litre engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, with the Supercharged Autobiography powered by the 5.0-litre LR-V8 petrol unit with six-speed automatic gearbox.
