Rumor has it that Land Rover is going to be offering 250 Limited Edition RRS S/Cs. They will have the HST front and rear bumpers (but not the HST grilles), premium brown leather interior, 20" stormers, RSE and ACC are required....

Should be around $82k or so because of the required options.

Very possibly true- hasn't been a Spec. Edition for our market since the intro and now it's two years later so..........

But...........Brown leather? I've seen the pics from the Geneva show and I was not a fan.

Can't understand why they don't offer Black leather for such a sporty vehicle.....

Sheesh! I was just at the dealer and saw a Special Edition 20th Anniversary Range Rover. It was nice! Had some kind of black wood with two-toned leather. Price tag: $145K. I quickly stepped away from the vehicle! :D

Well, it is a limited edition... I actually expected it would be more dough, especially after seeing the price of the 20th anniversary FFRR (of course, they are making a lot less of those.) And I kinda like the tan leather, it reminds me of a Ferrari. :D But I never liked the HST appendages and exhaust, if that's what this special edition is fitted with.

Nah I have pictures and it doesn't look like the HST.

Not sure I can post them though give me a couple of days.

Why would someone want that mix of HSE & S/C the brown leather with black looks bad in my opinion.
I think the regular S/C for $7k cheaper is better, I think they will have a hard time selling 250 of those !

Hey British-
Take another look at the HST bumpers, and then the bulletin. It IS the HST bumpers.
Yeah it is the HST bumpers but it doesn't really look like the HST.

I mean the HST was hideous and this looks OK in the low resolution shots.

Have to wait till they give us better pictures to be sure.

How "special"... :shock:
Wait, if I close one eye, and look at it in low resolution, and squint the other eye ... nope, still don't like it. :roll:

Here's a shot of it on an HST. Don't know if you have to buy the whole HST kit to get this or not though. You could probably find it on ebay.

You could not buy the extended roof spoiler on its own in the past, only as part of the HST body kit (which was never really available in North America anyway, except through "gray market" importers such as Roveractive.) Now that it is going to be part of a limited edition Sport here in the US, who knows. Maybe. Personally, I think it looks OK from some angles, tacked-on from others. The stock spoiler looks classy from every angle. :)
