Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations is a well-recruited department; all at once look for space performance and accompanying design – and SVO carefully listens to its customers!
First bad news – this Range Rover Astronaut Edition is available exclusively to members of the Virgin Galactic Future Astronaut Community!
Yes, it would be a shame not to crown the cooperation between Land Rover and Virgin Atlantic (which lasts from 2014) with a limited edition series, and it is not surprising Sir Richard Branson’s enthusiasm with this model.
Range Rover Astronaut Edition is based on the already ultra-luxurious Range Rover Autobiography, and has a Zero Gravity Blue color that naturally refers to the night sky.
This exclusive model, however, has several open options; you can choose between an environmentally conservative option (P400e plug-in hybrid with combined 404 hp and 72 g CO2/km) or adrenaline options (5.0 liter V8 P525 with compressor).
Suborbital taxi called Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo is a very featured element in the Range Rover Astronaut interior as well as a flying history in a small carbon panel between the seat – from Icarus and Wright to SpaceShipTwo itself.
