Talking New Range Rover L405

Provisional orders for the new Range Rover are being taken now.

Placed an order for a 5.0 S/C Autobiography in Causeway Grey but we can not decide what interior combination.







Interior choices:

Almond with Espresso / Almond carpets / Shadow Walnut

This wood is much darker and nicer in flesh.




or

Cirrus with Navy / Navy Carpets / Grand Black




I like the Almond upholstery but not sure how well it goes with Causeway Grey, plus I would prefer a dark carpet.

Similarly I'm not made up on the Cirrus upholstery yet, but it gets me a dark carpet.

My favourite choice of trim will have been something similar to Lined Oak wood that we have in our present Range Rover or the lined wood LR have fitted to their preview car, unfortunately neither are available!

Added specification as follows:
21" Polished alloy wheels
Active rear differential
Surrond cameras
Blind zone assist
Dark Atlas side plastics/bumper inserts
Privacy glass
Full size spare wheel
Type Pressure Monitor
Extra large washer fluid bottle
Rear Seat entertainment

How much is that option as a matter of interest?

Lovely motor though.

30 for the washer bottle and I agree that it should be incorporated within the standard specification.

The RR is one of those cars that can carry off proper wood without looking out of place.

So my vote is for the almond especially with the external colour. Really light leather (such as the Cirrus) needs really dark on the outside. Now if you have a really deep blue on the outside with that Cirrus interior that would look the dogs bits

So either go ultra classy (almond and keep the wood) or go ultra modern, change the outside colour and go for the cirrus

60k?

Having just looked at the configurator, that spec is coming in at over 100k

Must admit I thought you'd be doing well to get a 5.0 SC RR for 60k but didn't have chance to play fantasy-car-configurator. Bet it's a beast of a car. I've no real experience with RR's, except got a lift to Birmingham & back a few years back in a RRS, but do hold them in high regard though don't really float my boat just yet (maybe in a few years when I tire of daft cars!!).

Get away from the 21' wheels, tyres cost more than the truck! I know you pay to play but go to a 20 or 22. Also I hate tan interiors, but the Almond looks more comfy than the sterile hospital room of the Cirrus.

You certainly ain't short of a few bob if you're speccing the 5.0 RR when anyone knows the TDV8 is the best engine ever in an RR.

Lovely, lovely car...at the Paris motorshow it was one of the most impressive I've ever sat in.

However, Fly old chap.....21's??? Oh come on....you MUST get the 22's.

As for interior, well I like either but and the almond interior is nice, especially if thats also got the burgundy contrasting dash top. Normally, I'd say go for that but on these pics, it's light grey that looks the best to me.

I would definitely go for the almond interior, looks much classier.
You could always fit darker floor mats if worried about carpet and keep the cream ones until time to sell!

The light grey interiors never seem to wear well in the previous generation RR.

I thought these where already out as I see them everyday but that might have something to do with me working near halewood and they do sometimes give them to the bosses a couple of months early,
the Evoque was everywhere you looked up here about 3 months before the official release.
Anyway on ot this looks really smart on the road looks very low and less like a brick gotta give it to JLR they have done what FORD could never do and that is make extremely good looking cars

Nice car, I prefer the Almond and my wife has a similar sand coloured leather on her new Yeti with a black exterior. It looks warmer than the Grey below and looks a bit more upmarket in my eyes. Does it go with the exterior? It looks from your pics a really dark grey then I would say yes but if its like the BMW space grey the lighter option below may be a better choice.

But, it's your car and unless the dealer says it will be a difficult car to sell 2nd hand go for what you want.

I had no idea how much it was (evidently) but surely you'd have to be clinically insane to spend that much on a Range Rover?

Those thoughts make sense ...

I think I like Causeaway Grey because I want a colour which is different from the stock black and a colour which is similar to our present Range Rover, it's in a colour called Siljan Black (an individual Autobiography colour, looks more like a dark grey/charcoal).




I do like black, but every other Range Rover is also going to be black.

I have never ever seen the colour we have on another Range Rover...perhaps its time to find more currency to go for an individual colour.

They do feel pretty good and the view up from up front is excellent. Its mind boggling when something this big gets going pretty quickly

The engine is also cracking. I hear the new model comes with a 8 speed box and the new also weighs a lot less

Winters tyres might be an issue on the 22's. 20's I'd have down spec and I have a feeling they just won't fill the arches as well.

Thank you Palmnuts.

Were on of the cars you saw like Ruby black (BMW colour) with black leather and lined black wood ?

I have stayed away from the 22's because I figured they won't be any good for curb crawling ... I mean climbing kerbs of course

The wheels I have selected for the new RR are similar to those I have already have. I intend to use these for winter.

You've got the 22's thought process going now

Mats are not non issue, I can always replace these. Plus I will have rubber over mats anyway. Its the upholstery and boot carpets that concern me.

I believe the PR guys get cars pre release for marketing of course . I'm sure I also previewed one before the unveiling. Pleased to hear they look good on the road.

I have now discovered they look worryingly like the new Ford Explorer.

Something big and flash required. Present Range Rover is also a bespoke Autobiography.

Or do I...hmmm

Here's the wood on the current car ... looks black until you get closer and the light reflects

What a blatant rip-off by Ford.

Great car - is the photo of the current one in Marbella?

That grey will look stunning mate, and I would go with the beige interior, think it works really well on the RR.

Either nice, but the silver can be a bit cold, my E350 has a similar interior and it is nice, but not as luxurious as beige imho...

If it's different you want, the RR configurator seems to have you covered on that

And only an 8000 option

I had the almond interior in a Range Rover Sport. The seats, dash etc were lovely but the Almond carpet in the boot was a pain, impossible to keep clean even with a load protector.
