Nigerian Stars & Lekki Yummy Mummies Rejoice! First Photos of the 2013 Range Rover

Published

 on


Is there something about the Range Rover that makes it the car of choice for our Nigerian celebrities? From Pasuma to Ice Prince, Susan Peters to Davido, that’s their numero uno ride!

Pasuma & Ice Prince with their Range Rovers

A quick trip via at the Lekki Tollgate in Lagos will also reveal that Range Rovers top the list of “must haves” for Lagos’ yummy mummies alongside Aunty Funmi Hair and Birkin Bags 🙂

So here it is!
The new Range Rover – 2013 Edition.
Land Rover’s Global Brand Director John Edwards tells us that “The new Range Rover preserves the essential, unique character of the vehicle – that special blend of luxury, performance and unmatched all-terrain capability. However, its clean sheet design and revolutionary lightweight construction have enabled us to transform the experience for luxury vehicle customers, with a step change in comfort, refinement and handling.

The major upgrades from the previous model include an all-aluminium monocoque body structure which makes it 420kg lighter. The 2013 Range Rover is the first SUV to use this technology. According to thecarconnection.com, this makes it “a serious impact in fuel economy and emissions“. The interior has also been upgraded and is now more spacious and even more luxurious.

Enjoy.

      Madam Precious, why downgrade yourself so? Is it a taboo for you to own yours, or have you conditioned your mind to believe that the only way you can come in contact with a Rover is if your husband buys one?

  10. well done BN

    The irony of Nigerians and big expensive cars still beats me. You spend gazillions on a car, and do it the great injustice of driving it on our yeye roads. I still don’t get it. You would think that with our horrible roads, we will drive, modest easy to maintain cars. No o, we must to show that we have arrived. Plus tuke tuke and range rover, you will all use the same roads, that will spoil the car, sit in traffic for hours, and we wonder why the government does not bother investing in infrastructure and good transport networks. Not to talk of the lack of security, with all the big cars, you will be scared to drive at night, for fear of armed robbers. So what is the point jare. I’ve been blessed to work in big cities all over the world, and with all their infrastructure no one uses cars like the way we do in 9ja. Well except in Los Angeles and the likes.

      I will take you to an area filled up with abandoned Range Rovers, LR3s etc etc. The engineers say they have been waiting for more than a year for the car owners to come up with the cash for repairs. Lagos! I hail thee.

      LOL! I supposed they fit into the American ‘soccer mum’ demographic, but you probably won’t catch a Yummy Mummy dead in a minivan – they had to jazz it up a tad

    i think it’s not so much the car but the fact that nigerians just like to do what other’s do. too much competition going on .:)

Just asking dot com

    Watz yummy mummy? Don’t get! Any way the car is cool! But sad many take bank loans to acquire it! Dis I know because I work within the bank! A man once took a N20million. loan to purchase luxury vehicles for him and his lady with his house as a collateral! Even the banks relationship managers said he is one of the most foolish customers they always have and this is a big warning to young people! Dis big boy or big babe syndrome without due source of maintenance is one of the biggest problems of our economy! Remember the last bank criss was cause by unpaid bank debt to the tune of over one trillion naria and dis is because over 80% of the mansions on the island and mainland are credit financed not to take more on luxury vehicles. Which banks are ready to give loans as long as one have an approved source of income with collateral like I said I work within the sector and I can authoritatively tell this and when business go down or big jobs are lost, those loans are eithe rescheduled or properties are comfistated all because no banker today wants the wrath of CBN, NDIC and AMCON who all feel the are mis appropoating depository money with jail term awaiting! Come to my bank and u will be amazed how many of such cars and mansions are under auction! The last count on our website were 87 houses and 162 cars! And all these was in january! Life on the fact lane just because you can afford it is dangerous yet life on the fats lane when you can’t afford it is one sure way to poverty and this is one of the biggest challenges in mid life crisis!

    Let me tell you all a true life story! A certain business man in finance and stock broking business, took a business loan to the tune of N1billon for his business concern and got auditors to get his books together that the bank many have confidence he had collerteral more than enough to pay back if he defaults! The bank involved is an old generation bank currently under CBN management which is about to be sold and also declared loss last year! This business man rather than using the facility for the stated business concern went to his hometown close to asaba in delta state and built a sprawling mansion with Olympic size swimming pool and an helicopter pad! Also acquiring luxury vehicles with it! The bank executive director who facilitated the loan lost his job when the bank found out and the businessman was taken to Efcc and was shot listed as one of the. Debtors on news paper when the CBN published it! This is what I am taking about when I said most of those mansion and luxury vehicles are credit financed not only in nigeria but all over the world! Sadly most business credit facilities are spent on personal luxury without means of payback and this was the beginning of the bank crisis in nigeria! This they do becuase they realise those loans may not be granted to finance personal luxuries and so they take business loan but spend the facility on personal luxuries! Remember the global crisis was referred to as credit crunch! And this for my advice to all of us if you can afford all these within your legal income it good that you have all your heart desires but don’t jump out of your financial boat to belong to the big boys and babes in town!

    You use the term Yummy Mummy for ladies that are ‘Cash rich time poor’ who live in a robust/stable economy. Women,who are too busy / on the go,to do what normal people do,Eg,cooking,shopping etc – No economy in Africa is stable to encompass such class of people in Africa.So spare me this Yummy Mummy borrowed lingo.
    Anybody that can confidently dole out millions in this present economy to buy these kind of cars are either corrupt Politicians,Oil bunkerers/Thieves,Oil subsidy rogues,drug dealers,bank CEOs.etc. Are these the people that make our economy better?
    When Nigeria/economy works for everybody,then you can the bragging right to use that word ‘Yummy Mummy.Otherwise,what we have here are CAGS. (Criminals and their wives/Girlfriends)
