Land Rover Teaming With Abercrombie & Kent on Lux Excursion
$140k Vacation Visits Eight Countries in Range Rover SVAutobiography
Luxury travel experts at Abercrombie & Kent are teaming up with the folks behind the Range Rover SVAutobiography to offer an outrageously pricey world excursion. Available at select Abercrombie & Kent boutiques in the United Kingdom, Monaco, and Dubai, the vacation package includes a trip to five continents, eight countries, and nine luxurious hotels, costing the well-heeled £100,000 of their pocket money per person ($143,610, at current exchange rates).
Those lucky world travelers will see the planet from behind the wheel of Land Rover’s most luxurious offering, the Range Rover SVAutobiography. One-upping the Autobiography Black (which it replaces), the SVA is only offered in long-wheelbase form, fit with the company’s 550hp supercharged 5.0L V-8. Knurled aluminum trim, deep-pile mohair carpeting, and a rear-seat refrigerator make the SVAutobiography a near-perfect luxury safari machine, given its off-road pedigree.
The trip starts in Monaco, winding its way through Lake Como to the Dolomites region of the Alps. From there, guests fly to Marrakech for a three-night stay, with daily drives to experience the surrounding desert and practice their off-road skills in the SVA.
The third leg starts somewhere a bit less exotic, at least to Americans: Arizona. However, this leg includes a stay at the unique Amangiri resort in the Utah desert, featured in these photos. Looking like something from a James Bond film, Amagiri’s contemporary accommodations are the launching point to daily activities near the Escalante National Monument, Antelope Canyon, and Zion National Park.
Next up on the trip is the Atacama Desert in Chile, the driest region in the world and gateway to the Alamo Observatory, which houses a $1.4 million telescope. The trip concludes in Australia, with stops in Sydney and Tasmania. Three weeks after their departure, guests return home.
All in, it doesn’t sound like a bad way to spend two years of the average American’s salary, for those who’ve got the cash. None of us at Truck Trend do, however, so we’ll just have to envy from afar.
