2013 Range Rover Highland GTC by Merdad

UK-based tuning firm, Merdad, has been featured prominently on these pages for its work on the Porsche Cayenne 902 Coupe .

Now it’s turning its attention on something a little closer to its roots, the Land Rover Range Rover . Though the photos of the program are still in their preview guise, Merdad did divulge details behind the Range Rover Highland GTC.

Notice that the luxury SUV looks a little bit bigger? The tuning firm did the work on that, courtesy of a new wide-body aero package that added 92 mm (3.62 inches) to the SUV’s width. The list of components includes a new hood, wheel arch extensions, new side skirts, a roof spoiler, a full-carbon rear bumper, a new diffuser and tailpipe deflectors. In addition, the interior was also treated to a complete overhaul, although Merdad has yet to release any information on how it did just that.

Another important part of the program is Merdad’s promise of a performance upgrade, which will be offered in a choice of outputs ranging from 510 horsepower all the way up to a staggering 700 horsepower with prices being broken down to $209,000 for the Range Rover 3.0-liter, $228,000 for the HSE 4.4-liter, $239,000 for the Supercharged 5.0-liter, and $485,000 for the 700 GTC Range Rover Coupe Racing 4 Seater.
