with additional contemporary refinements, including a bluetooth-connected alpine satellite navigation, and a reversing camera sport-style instrument dials, overfinch’s ‘special edition’ is a tribute that land rover can be proud of. the ‘40th anniversary edition’s’ interior features recaro two-tone leather bucket seats with a 40th signature crest stitched into the headrest. overfinch extends the use of high-quality leather to the steering wheel, handbrake, dashboard top, and gearshift, allowing buyers to choose from combinations of leather colors, contrast stitching, and seat piping.
