Range Rover: now with guns and booze

Even the most ardent Land Rover fan would concede the supercharged V8 Range Rover isn’t the most socially acceptable of vehicles.

But what if you want it to be more socially unacceptable? Way, way more socially unacceptable?

You add guns and alcohol, that’s what you do. Lots of guns and lots of alcohol.

This is the Holland and Holland Range Rover by Overfinch, a £140,000 ultra-luxury version of the big 4x4, and it has many guns and much alcohol.

Described as ‘the ultimate all-purpose, all-season, luxury supercar for the discerning few’, it is mechanically identical to the supercharged Range Rover but features a host of posh upgrades to suit the discerning country gent/alcoholic weapons enthusiast.

There’s a 31-piece gun cabinet, hand-crafted in walnut or ‘special wood’, and something described as a ‘self-replenishing drinks cabinet’ in place of the central rear seat.

No, we have no idea how a self-replenishing drinks cabinet works. Do the bottles of whisky, champagne and vodka magically refill when you close the lid? Does the Overfinch sense you’re running low on supplies and somehow pilot itself down to an off-licence to top up the booze?

However it works, it’s probably not going to wash as an excuse when you get pulled over on suspicion of drink-driving. “I had to drink it, officer. It just kept filling up…”

Other luxtastic touches include an integrated fridge, a set of posh glassware and a small man to polish your brogues and refill your pipe. We lied about the small man.

Just 100 Overfinch Range Rovers will be built each year. Has your shady agent recently renegotiated your contract to include an improved win bonus? You know where to head…

Now watch Clarkson attempt to outrun a Challenger tank in the Range Rover Sport:

Now share it...
