A series of special-edition Range Rovers, marking 50 years since the brand’s arrival in the UAE, have landed on Emirati shores.
The vehicles, all bearing the Vogue banner, have been inspired by the distinctive colours and geographical landmarks of the country.
With this in mind, the names given to the seven distinct versions may sound familiar. Monikers include the Al Hosn Edition in Valorie White, the Das Black Edition in Ligurian Black, the Naqab Edition in Verbier Silver, the Hafeet Edition in Scafell Grey, the Mleiha Edition in Rio Gold, the Hatta Edition in Balmoral Blue and the Marsa Edition in Velocity Blue.
The vehicles, limited to 50 units, also sport commemorative flag badging, and the UAE Nation brand logo on the B-Pillar.
They are equipped with the new mild hybrid electric vehicle engine capable of producing about 400 horsepower. Other features include 22-inch diamond-turned alloys, black roof and matching side graphics, 10.2-inch entertainment screens in the rear seats, a heads-up display, and suede cloth generously spread throughout the cabin.
Deployable side steps can be added as an optional accessory, if required, so getting in and out of these lorry-like vehicles is made easier.
Formally known as the Special UAE Edition 2021 Range Rover Vogues, these new arrivals are unique to the Emirates. Last summer, though, Range Rover announced another special edition, called the Fifty, to mark a half-century since the brand was first shown to the world in its original, blocky guise.
The Range Rover is now in its fourth generation, and more than one million units have rolled off production lines over the course of its lifetime. The model came about after the company wanted to combine the luxury of a Rover saloon with the off-road capabilities of a Land Rover.
If you fancy one of the new UAE Vogues, it will set you back Dh590,100. They’re available now at Al Tayer Motors and Premier Motors.
