Land Rover's Autobiography line is now entering its third decade of pimping out ultra-luxurious Range Rovers. The bigger question, though, is what the British SUV manufacturer has planned next to fend off the impending advances of Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Maybach.

Land Rover is seriously amping up its luxury credentials at the 2013 LA Motor Show, showing off its new Range Rover Autobiography Black. Available only in the off-road manufacturer's new long-wheelbase bodystyle, the Black model of the popular Rangie has a starting price of $185,000. To put that into perspective, a short-wheelbase base model starts at $84,195.
A fullsize SUV like a Range Rover is seldom lacking for space. But there are always those – from the slopes of Aspen to the dunes of Dubai and the streets of Shanghai – for whom that will never be enough. And for just such customers, Land Rover has finally revealed the long-awaited, long-wheelbase Range Rover.
Ten years wouldn't seem like much of an anniversary for an automaker, or even a sub-brand. But we're not talking about a make here, we're talking about one model. That's right: The current Range Rover has been on the market for a decade, which is a rather long life-cycle for any automobile, but Jaguar Land Rover isn't the least bit embarrassed. In fact, it's celebrating the anniversary with a series of special edition models.
