Imperiously presented in the sophisticated factory shade of Causeway Grey Metallic, the exterior presents to an extremely high standard. Showing no significant evidence of stone chips, or gravel rash, testimony to the attentive care lavished on this Autobiography by previous owners. The fitted side steps are a welcome practical addition, assisting entry and exit. Globally recognised as a benchmark design for the high luxury SUV sector, the L405 Range Rover delivers style, comfort and practical capability like no other vehicle in its class.
The Autobiography offers an extremely high level of finish and equipment, all occupants are swathed in the most desirable materials and exhaustive array of technical aids. Quality abounds, complimenting the exterior perfectly, with little evidence of wear to be found to any of the surfaces. The light Linen perforated leather upholstery blends perfectly against the Ebony Gloss Black highlights and details. The sliding Panoramic roof affords an air of spaciousness, while adaptive mood lighting, illuminated door entry sills, electrically operated rear seating and massage front seats, further enhance the ownership experience. As to be expected, during our extensive road test, all instruments and internal equipment operates totally as intended.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Designed by Gerry McGovern and launched at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the L405 is now an all aluminium construction, being 39% lighter than previous model, a weight saving of approx 420kgs. Powered by a Ford derived 32 valve 4.4 V8 developing 339 bhp and 541 lbs/ft of torque, capable of propelling the car from 0-60 mph in approx 6.5 secs and a top speed in the region of 135 mph. Transmission is via an 8 speed ZF automatic gearbox. The rotary selector is mounted in the centre console, emerging from beneath upon engine start up. Gears can be selected manually via paddle shift controls mounted on the steering wheel. Electronic cross linked air suspension offers variable ride height with multiple suspension modes, access, normal on road, off-road and extended height which, in conjunction with automatic load levelling feature, ensures the perfect ride. Variable dampers adjust continuously to provide balance and composure, while the Dynamic Response system helps reduce body roll when cornering and enhances stability at higher speeds. Off road capabilities are legendary though further assisted by a Hill Decent System, controlled acceleration control, and Hill Start Assist will prevent unwanted roll back. The new Terrain Response System optimises vehicle settings to cover all surfaces from grass to snow, mud, sand and rock crawl modes.
Luxury and road presence come as standard with the Autobiography, certainly one of the very best examples we have seen, we urge you to experience while still available.
