We don't know about you, but whenever we sit in the back of a Range Rover, we feel like we need at least another 10 centimeters of space in order to fully stretch. These days, you can't possible expect to sell an SUV that can't double as a living room or business office. Jokes aside, Land Rover is really on to something with the long wheelbase version of the double-R.
There should be no shortage of customers in China or the Middle East who want such a car, and the Brits will deliver in a big way… a very big way.

Our spies have caught this test prototype of a long wheelbase fourth-gen Range Rover exiting the JLR test center in Germany, getting ready to start standard performance testing at the Nurburgring.

Extra length has visibly been added to the rear doors, despite the new Range Rover already having a 100mm longer wheelbase than the old model. Other than that, it's still a very sexy vehicle under all that camouflage. The first things you'll notice is the stylishly raked front grille and the wraparound headlights followed by more than 5 meters of relatively flat bodywork.

The engines should carry over unchanged from the normal car, meaning supercharged V6 petrol, a few diesels and the powerful 510 hp supercharged V8, which should be the prime pick for this sort of ultra-posh car.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
