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.
