Stretching out at the Los Angeles Convention Center show floor today, the Range Rover Long-Wheelbase Autobiography Black packs with plenty of luxury even for LA’s most prestigious.

The long-wheelbase Range Rover adds 5.5 inches of rear seat legroom and can be equipped with an executive seating package which allows for a seatback that can recline up to 17 degrees. Standard seats can recline up to nine degrees. But it’s the Autobiography Black model that really steps up the luxury with unique exterior and interior accessories.

On the outside, the Autobiography Black adds a unique finish on the front grille and side vents with special badges finished in black and chrome. The rear tailgate and front vents are also accented by a subtle chrome finish while the tail lights aren’t your standard run-of-the-mill units. Completing the aesthetics are exclusive seven-spoke, 21-inch wheels.

But it’s the cabin where Land Rover really stepped up its game with a unique design on the leather seats. Four individual captain’s chairs are found inside, each with its own climate control and memory settings. And if you didn’t think that was luxurious enough, each seat also has its own massaging function and adjustable bolsters.

Land Rover was primarily focused on improving rear seat comfort with this edition. Rear seat passengers get individual 10.2-inch screens to stare at. When you aren’t busy watching TV, the center console offers deployable tables covered in black leather with integrated cup holders.

The Autobiography Black Long-Wheelbase model will be exclusive to just 100 units next year, a quarter of which will come in the custom Valloire White pearl paint. And just how much will the Range Rover Long-Wheelbase Autobiography back cost you? Try a whopping $185,000 including destination. If you want the custom Valloire White paint, be prepared to negotiate from $199,500. The standard Range Rover Autobiography starts from $137,465 while the Range Rover Autobiography Long-Wheelbase is priced from $142,995. To put that all into perspective, the base model Range Rover costs just $84,195.
