Land Rover has made some iconic vehicles in the past, but there are always special versions that can enhance the appeal and character of the cars.

Here are our five favourite Land Rover special editions…

Holland & Holland Range Rover

Holland & Holland Range Rover

British gun maker and Royal warrant holder Holland & Holland decided to take one of the most capable vehicles around, the Range Rover, and turn it into one of the most luxurious versions of the SUV. Coming with an exclusive finish that features leather, Alcantara, wood and engraved metal, the Holland & Holland Range Rover comes with a gun locker in the boot and can is based on the highly specced Autobiography Black model. Built in standard and long wheelbase forms, the deep green and chrome model cost £180,000.

Evoque Special Edition with Victoria Beckham

Range Rover Evoque Special Edition with Victoria Beckham

Soon after the Evoque burst onto the stage, Land Rover teamed up with Victoria Beckham to make one of the most exclusive iterations of the compact SUV. Coming with leather, mohair, microsuede and a hand-finished paint job with rose gold accents, this special edition was premium-looking inside and out. Limited to just 200 units, the Victoria Beckham version cost £79,995 and also came with a bespoke luggage set and leather wallet.

Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic

Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic

Autobiography versions of the Range Rover are always well-specced, so when Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations decided to add a 5.0-litre supercharged V8, the model produced felt all the more special. The SVAutobiography Dynamic was capable of 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds and was fitted with a quilted leather interior, all of the latest kit from 2017 and a more dynamic setup so you could take your comfortable off-roader to the limit. At launch, it cost from £132,800.

Paul Smith Defender

Land Rover Paul Smith Defender

This one-off version of the iconic model was built for British fashion designer Paul Smith and featured 27 different coloured panels on the exterior. Designed in collaboration with Smith, this Defender also featured unique design touches, such as a hand-painted bee on the roof, a Paul Smith clock in the dash and an exclusive upholstery finish.

Defender Works V8

Land Rover Defender Works V8

As the most iconic Land Rover ever built, it was only right the manufacturer made a special effort on its 70thanniversary. Fitted with a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8, only 150 Works V8 units were built and each came with an eight-speed automatic transmission – meaning the model could get from 0-60mph in 5.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 105mph. This special version cost from £150,000.
