The 4.4-litre TDV8 diesel engine is priced ₹1.72 crore, and the 5-litre V8 supercharged petrol model is priced ₹1.8 crore. The diesel engine is available in two variants - Vogue SE and Autobiography. 2013 Range Rover will also join the list of the last vehicles launched by Ratan Tata, the chairman of the Tata Group before he steps down in December.
