version is on the way early next year, and now it is adding two more variants – the long wheelbase and Autobiography Black.

It is the first time since 1994 that Land Rover has offered a long wheelbase version of the Range Rover, and it will make its debut at the LA Auto Show on November 19 and also be shown at the Guangzhou auto show in China.

The longer wheelbase adds 140mm more rear legroom, and it is available with either the standard bench rear seat or executive rear seats that recline 17 degrees and are eight-way adjustable. It also comes standard with power side door blinds and a panoramic sunroof. The long wheelbase is available in the Vogue, Vogue SE, Autobiography and Autobiography Black trim levels. A hybrid long wheelbase version will be added later.

The Autobiography Black is meant as the range-topping Range Rover model and will debut at the Dubai Motor Show on November 5.

“This exclusive vehicle has been developed by the specialist Engineered to Order team to offer our customers an unrivalled and luxurious driving experience that provides a seamless integration between the needs of business and leisure," said John Edwards, Managing Director of the Land Rover Individual Products Division.

The cars get black enamel and chrome trim on the exterior around the grill, side vented and tailgate. It comes standard with either 21in or 22in wheels.

The interior gets leather covering the seats, parcel shelf and A-, B-, C-, and D-pillars. There are also new seats and the executive rear seats standard and a center console that extends the entire length of the vehicle. The front seats come with massage, power bolsters and 18-way adjustability. In the rear, the console has electrically deployable tables with integrated USB chargers and cup holders. There is also a chilled compartment in the rear console. Drivers can also switch between 10 colors of LEDs to fit their mood.

Both the long wheelbase and Autobiography Black will go on sale in March 2014.
