Click for hi-res gallery of Overfinch's RR Country Pursuits

Take a ride through Los Angeles and you very well might see a Range Rover with a gun rack, but even with those giant spinners it won't be as pimpin' as Overfinch's Range Rover Country Pursuits Concept. Although labeled as a concept vehicle, the Overfinch Country Pursuits is available for order for a cost-no-object $287,000.

The show car unveiled at the London Salon Privé appeared resplendent in Aubergine purple with custom bodykit, including custom front and rear bumpers, side skirts, roof spoiler and exhaust tips. Inside it's all posh in Light Avocado and Cordovan leather with Olive Ash wood trim, plus a specially-crafted gun compartment complete with three sliding drawers for a removable gun case, ammo, and -- just to round things out -- a crystal stemware set. But just in case you thought it was all show, Overfinch has tuned the 4.2-liter supercharged V8 from 396hp all the way up to 470, along with fitting Brembo brakes with silver branded calipers and a special on-the-fly adjustable suspension. We know this is targeted as the ultimate hunting accessory, but frankly we're not sure who would be buying such a vehicle, nor are we sure we'd want to meet him.

      I could see it now, a hunter with his friends come back from the hunt with muddy boots, dirt and blood all over them along with their dead *insert animal here* and get into a $290,000 LR with White Interior... Hilarity ensues soon afterward.

        That's a "gangsta" and that's called a "Drive By"... not hunting.

        The type of hunter that has a Range Rover shoots from the window. They dont get dirty or out of the truck.

      The fact that Overfinch has tuned the 4.2-liter supercharged V8 from 396hp all the way up to 470 is an important competitive advantage.

      It is the element that can make the difference in the future.

      Lowered it has a sort of Ford Flex look - if you squint... hard.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Actually, it's the other way round, Land Rover design has been with us for a while.... Mind, Ford used to own Land Rover... So I think it's safe to say that it's the Flex that looks like a Land Rover rip-off.

        BTW, built it chest of drawers.... nice touch, very nice touch, indeed....
        • 6 Years Ago
        Whatever, not claiming "rip off" just a resemblance. Good for the Flex if it looks like a $290K Range Rover. Better than looking like a Scion xb.

      Did anyone else notice that the wheels don't match in the photos? Colour-keyed rims are shown on on side. :)

      I like the Range Rover, but would be too embarrassed to drive a big SUV now.

      I'm guessing this is for the upper class, fox hunting dukes and earls who would need guns and stemware within easy reach. They'll drive it to their stables, load up the rifles, gallop off on a hunt and when they return they'll stand around the back of the vehicle sipping sherry and congratulating each other. Makes sense to me.

      i just lost all respect for range rovers...that is bordering aztek ugly!

        @Jvijil
        Really? Looks very Range Rover to me, always a good thing in my book. Will look better when sitting up higher. I am sure it has the adjustable suspension.

      overdone!

      At nearly 300K, i doubt the cost of petrol will bother the target market for this kind of auto. If a person can even consider this SUV, I would assume they are at least somewhat financially secure.

      With gas prices, these will sell fast.


      (leaking with sarcasm)
        • 6 Years Ago
        More like overwrought...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Rich ppl buy these... so they might sell fast... but only stupid rich ppl wil. since it has ford parts in it... But... if you want to be cool buy a Escalade Hybrid.... then take all the dumb Hybrid makeing off it... lol.

      Overfinch Range Rover? Didn't Jezza test drive one many seasons ago? I remember he raced against a Boxster in which the P-car was on the tarmac while the Overfinch was on grass and yet it won.

      It doesn't matter what US gas prices are, this is a British company, meaning it is for EU only. SO, you should make a comment towards gas prices being more like $9.00 a gallon (rough currency translation)! Doesn't matter though, since at that price the uber-rich could care less about the cost of fuel.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Has not been a British company for a long time.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I find the overall look of the vehicle gaudy and horrifying.
