With a starting price of over £73,000, the Range Rover isn't what you'd call a car for the masses. Instead it is pitched as the ultimate in luxury - a leather-lined limousine that will always get you where you need to go, whether that might be Chelsea or the Congo.

However, for some well-heeled individuals, buying a Range Rover 'off the peg' is a bit, well, common. For these discerning motorists, respected Land Rover fettler Overfinch is on hand with its latest creation.

Snappily titled the Overfinch Range Rover Long Wheelbase, this new model will leave buyers with no concerns over exclusivity, it being the most expensive Range Rover the marque has released, at an eye-watering £205,000.

As you'd expect at this price, Overfinch has pulled out all the stops to create a luxury experience over and above the already exquisite standard Range Rover. Aimed at those who'd rather let a chauffeur do the driving, the Overfinch is based on top-of-the-range long wheelbase model, which offers an even greater amount of legroom for rear passengers.

On top of this, the Overfinch model boasts a number of custom features, including a moving boot floor, which brings luggage closer to the grasp of owners (or more realistically, butlers) who can't be bothered to reach into the load space, which, incidentally, is lined with top-line 'Brige of Weir' leather – because carpet is just so passé, dah-ling.

While the interior of the launch edition pictured here is finished in Piano Black with Mother of Pearl inserts, buyers will be able to choose from a near limitless range of colour and material combinations, ensuring their car is properly unique.

Externally, the Overfinch differentiates itself from the regular Range Rover Long Wheelbase with the addition of carbon fibre elements to front and rear bumpers, as well as the roof spoiler. The standard Range Rover grille has also been replaced for a bespoke Overfinch item.

Under the bonnet, the 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 is unaltered, though it's now connected to a (Bluetooth-operated!) sports exhaust system, which gives the snarling motor a greater vocal range at the touch of a button.

Overfinch chairman, Kevin Sloane, said: "For the first time, the larger Range Rover is being used as a chauffeuring vehicle and our interpretation sets a new benchmark of exclusivity.

"The Overfinch LWB is in direct response to growing demand aimed specifically at global, ultra-high net worth customers and is the most expensive we have ever produced."

Overfinch isn't alone in creating supremely upmarket Range Rovers. Iconic British gunmaker Holland & Holland recently announced a new partnership with Land Rover, to create a bespoke Range Rover, with space for a brace of shotguns in the rear. It's ideal for an impromptu shooting trip – just don't forget to pack your Barbour jacket and green wellies.
