Overfinch reveals bespoke 2014 Range RoverTue, 24 Dec 2013
The debut of the long-wheelbase Range Rover a month ago raised the bar when it comes to SUVs acting as chauffeured limousines, even if the model was arguably a few years late to the market's demands. When coupled with the Autobiography Black trim, the long-wheelbase Range Rover didn't quite turn into a conference room on wheels, but it did do a good impression of first-class airline seating.
If that model is meant to be a chauffeured limousine more than anything else, the standard-wheelbase Range Rover is still the ticket if you want to take the wheel yourself. And Land Rover coachbuilder Overfinch has just released their own upgraded version of the 2014 Range Rover. Overfinch has been working exclusively with Land Rover vehicles since 1975, and this latest effort is meant to showcase their new luxury and styling package.
On the outside, the Range Rover has received revised front and rear bumpers, along with side sills made out of carbon fiber. The front fascia has been substantially reworked, with redesigned air inlets added to the front bumper along with LED daytime running lights, in addition to parking sensors and cameras. Out back, the SUV has received exhaust tips integrated into the rear bumper, along with a modest spoiler on the tailgate. Overfinch lettering has replaced Range Rover badging on the hood and the tailgate. The exterior look is rounded out by the 22-inch and 23-inch Overfinch wheels available in a choice of three designs: Zeus, Osprey, and Xenon.
Interior options include a choice of two seat designs.
On the inside, Overfinch offers a number of wood and leather choices, in addition to two seat designs called Solitaire and Mercury. Solitaire features classic diamond stitching, a theme that has been popular with coachbuilders working on British cars, while Mercury is meant to be a modern, sport-style seat that features contrast stitching and micro-piping accents. Both seat options feature Bridge of Weir leather.
Integrated exhaust tips and a spoiler add to the individual look of Overfinch's Range Rover.
“We provide clients with an opportunity to create truly bespoke vehicles, whether it is a restrained enhancement or a more expressive statement, thanks to our array of personalization options," said Kevin Sloane, Overfinch chairman.
No details on pricing for this upgrade package are available just yet. We expect Overfinch to release their own version of the long-wheelbase Range Rover in the near future, a model that's sure to face some competition from Belgian coachbuilder and armorer Carat Duchatelet, who has already marketed bespoke long-wheelbase Range Rovers even before the debut of the factory-stretched model.
