Don’t get us wrong; we know we go on and on about Rolls-Royce Phantoms and Rolls-Royce Ghosts and everything else Rolls-Royce, but believe us when we say we do actually take a keen interest in other cars from time to time.
And this time it’s the all new 2012 Range Rover, revealed recently ahead of a public debut at Septembers Paris Motor Show; a car that let’s just say, we really wouldn’t mind getting our hands on at all!
The new Range Rover has that distinct Range Rover look, taking aspects of its design from other popular models in the Land Rover range especially its baby brother, the Evogue. However, it’s recent redesign for 2012 is smoother and more streamlined making it lighter and faster than any previous model. The new model has a longer wheelbase, one distinct difference from the outset which definitely makes this new car stand out on the road.
The Range Rover has already made Land Rover history, being the first time the car has been fitted with an all-aluminium body as opposed to its traditional steel one, making it around 39% lighter! Crazy, right? This new light-weight Range Rover model opens up new possibilities in regards to engine choices, much greater fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
The 2012 Range Rover also comes with even more luxury inside, taking aboard customer comments to improve what was already a pretty luxurious car as it was. There is now more space and easier access for rear-seat passengers, while the front cabin has a more refined, tidier and classier look.
Performance figures, specifications and pricing will be confirmed when the car goes on sale in early September so keep a look out if you’re interested in one of these badboys. We certainly are!
