The 2021 Range Rover Goes Retro In Honor of Its Golden Anniversary
It’s been 50 years since the original Range Rover was launched, and to celebrate this milestone, the British brand presents an ultra-limited edition model of its flagship SUV. The Range Rover Fifty 2021 is coming soon with special color options and lots of badges. And, yes, some SUVs will travel to North America.
In limited numbers, buyers will be able to choose three cheerful paint colors from the original Range Rover palette, including Tuscan blue, Bahama gold and Davos white. Other painting work will include Carpathian gray, Rosello red, Aruba and Santorini black. The exterior also features a custom finish that Range Rover calls Auric Atlas. Unique 22-inch wheels, available in two different models, complete the look.
As with any respectable special edition, this Range Rover receives a unique badge. You will find a “Fifty” script on the outside as well as parts of the inside, including the threshold plates, the dashboard and the headrests. It also appears on the commemorative plaque which highlights the special nature of the model. Since the limited edition is based on the Autobiography version, we expect the vehicles to feature premium features such as the heated, cooled and massaging 24-way front seats and the heated, cooled and reclining rear seats executive.
The Range Rover will make 1,970 copies of the special edition for the world, marking the inaugural year of the SUV in 1970. Standard and long wheelbase versions will be available. North American models will come standard with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 developing 518 horsepower.
Pricing and specifications will be announced later this year, closer to the date the vehicle goes on sale. But we imagine it will be more expensive than the 2020 Range Rover Autobiography, which costs $ 145,095 when equipped with the 518 horsepower V8.
