Called the Adventum Coupe, it takes at least six months to build and costs over $300,000.
The Land Rover Range Rover is one of the ultimate statements of wealth, power, and opulence. Its image transcends cultures - one moment you'll see a soccer mom rolling by in one of them in the leafy suburbs, and the next it'll be blinged up in a Drake music video. Now, Dutch car designer Niels van Roij and coachbuilder Bas van Roomen have joined forces and unveiled the spectacular Adventum Coupe.
This special, coachbuilt coupe version of the Range Rover is equipped with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with 525 hp, but even the mighty engine seems to pale alongside the stunning detailing of the Adventum, seen here in Arctic White Paint and with a red leather interior. Although based on the mass production Range Rover, the Adventum's body panels - hand-beaten in aluminum - differ from the A- to the C-Pillar.
In fact, nothing more than the fenders, hood, and trunk lid are shared with the regular model. For instance, the ill-fated Range Rover SV Coupe had vertical imitation ventilation ducts ahead of the front door, but the Adventum Coupe does away with these. "The shutlines of the door actively contribute to a more elegant side view," explains Van Roij. "The interior has also been largely redesigned due to the major changes to the exterior."
In the exquisite cabin, what immediately catches the eye besides the red Nappa leather is the floor, which is covered in handmade teak wood. Accentuated by white lines, it reminds of a luxury yacht. Other gorgeous details include hand-constructed door panels and a door pocket in red leather, while at the back, there are two power-adjustable captain's chairs.
The luxurious touches even extend to the trunk, which houses two black/red umbrellas in leather and with hand-stitching.
The entire coachbuilding process takes a minimum of six months (based on each model's individual specifications), so it's perhaps no surprise that the Adventum Coupe carries a price tag of €270,000 (that works out to just over $300,000). The level of personalization will also appeal to a well-heeled clientele. "In a co-design process with the future owner, we shape [the] exterior and interior," says Van Roij.
"We make it so personal that even the favorite pinstripe from the owner's suit can be incorporated into the interior." That level of customization doesn't come cheaply, and neither does the novelty of owning what is essentially a coupe version of the iconic Range Rover. If you want one, you'll first need to cough up a deposit of over $55,000.
