The hunt for a green car: Land Rover

Land Rover very modestly offer a single, dark green called Aintree Green. They have eleven colours in all.

If you read the accompanying text, LR describe the design as “kinetic design”. I thought Ford owned that term. Unfortunately, the colour range is shown as a sliding bar so you can´t see all the colour at once. Here is the interior with its almond/espresso trim. The total cost of the car as optioned is £32,000. I chose a mid-range diesel and trim pack.

The Range Rover is also available in Aintree Green. Isn´t it a mistake to offer the same colours in the top range cars as on the lower models? I´d insist that if you are paying £108,000 for a car that the colour should not be same as on the models for the proletariat £70,0000 further down the price ladder. What a scandal.

Is this the first time we have ever featured a Range Rover at Driven To Write?
