Land Rover will offer a long-wheelbase (LWB) version of its luxury Range Rover model and we have proof for this in the form of these spy shots of a disguised prototype model undergoing speed tests at the Nürburgring track.
As you see for yourself in the pictures, the upcoming addition to the recently revealed 2013 Range Rover Mk4 lineup sports a longer wheelbase (reportedly around 150mm / 5.9 inches) and longer rear doors.
The extra space will benefit the rear passengers with the LWB model likely to offer both a three- and a two-seat configuration at the back. Given that the even the regular 2013 Range Rover features a significant 118mm (4.6 inches) boost in rear legroom over the previous model, the LWB version should provide passengers with a limo like experience.
Our spies haven't had the opportunity (yet…) to snap pictures of the SUV's interior, but we expect the LWB model to offer more standard and optional luxury amenities as well as higher grade materials and trims compared to the regular Range Rover.
As for the powertrain options, the Range Rover LWB will probably be offered only with the V8 petrol engines and possibly, a V8 diesel.
Look for the longer and more luxurious Range Rover to make its market debut sometimes next year.
Correction: As pointed out by our readers, this is not the first LWB version of the Range Rover as Land Rover has offered such as model in the past.
