Land Rover reveals the Westminster to replace the Vogue and facelifted Autobiography models to mark end of the current Range Rover.
The last time Land Rover delivered the Range Rover Westminster the previous Range Rover was coming to the end of its life. That was in 2001; now, ten years after the launch of the current model, the Westminster moniker has been dusted off, signalling the current Range Rover's end. Replacing the previous TDV8 Vogue and Vogue SE models, the new Range Rover Westminster Edition has joined the line-up boasting a bright 'Noble' front grille and side vents, 'Titan' silver lower splitter bar and 20-inch 10-spoke alloys.
Illuminated treadplates are revealed upon opening the doors, and a cabin awaits with Grand Black lacquer trim elements, heated/cooling front seats, and a 19-speaker Harman/kardon surround sound system. Under the hood, the new Westminster Edition gets the 4.4-liter TDV8 engine with eight-speed automatic transmission, and comes in a choice of seven exterior colors and fiver interior color combinations. Standard equipment includes an electric sunroof, Park Distance Control with rear-view camera, and a heated, leather trimmed steering wheel.
The top-of-the-range Autobiography, in both TDv8 and Supercharged form, has also been upgraded gaining the Range Rover Design Pack as standard. This includes new front and rear bumpers, Titan silver front grille and side vent treatments, integrated stainless-steel exhaust finishers and 20-inch alloys in Shadow Chrome. The Seat Style Pack features inside, which includes rear seats with recline and lumbar adjustment, heating & cooling functions and aircraft-style headrests, and front passenger seats with a memory function.
The TDv8 variant retains the 4.4-liter engine with eight-speed automatic transmission, while the Supercharged version is powered by the 5.0-liter LR-V8 gasoline engine with six-speed automatic gearbox. On sale this March, the Westminster special edition will be priced at £69,995, with on-the-road prices for the TDV8 Autobiography and Supercharged Autobiography set at £84,295 and £86,895 respectively.
