Land Rover will showcase its luxury skills when it unveils this maxed-up Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
Gaydon calls it the 'most luxurious Range Rover' and it has a pair of Apple iPads installed in to the rear entertainment system as standard so businessmen and kids can smear grubby fingers aplenty as they work and play. A pair of individual back seats is fitted in place of a rear bench, and there's an aluminium laptop table too.
There's an array of finery thrown at the interior: soft-touch leather is used throughout, as well as machined aluminium inserts and Kalahari wood veneers, while the rear load bay is lined with a teak decking.

Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition: the engines

A pair of engines are available: the 4.4 TDV8 or the 5.0 petrol supercharged V8. Both come with ZF's eight-speed auto, and the petrol motor will thrust the top Rangie to 60mph in 5.9sec.
Outside you'll spot the Autobiography Ultimate by a pair of unique colours - red or stone - 20in alloy wheels, body-coloured handles, a smoked radiator grille and side vents.
Just 500 Ultimate Range Rovers will be built. What price such OTT luxury? We won't know until later in 2011 when the car goes on sale. It's a bit of a swansong for the Range Rover - the new one lands next year.
