RDB, a top car customizer for the rich and famous, just revealed the world’s first new Range Rover fitted with the 1016 Industries widebody kit. In addition, it’s been equipped with a set of their own RDB wheels and has a satin khaki green wrap which makes it look suspiciously like one of Kim Kardashian’s cars.
We know that Kim loves the Range Rover. In fact, it was her go-to SUV in the early days o Keeping Up with the Kardashians. And she does own an all-new model like this one, with the extended wheelbase, also like the one we see here. For the record, a Range Rover LWB First Edition like this costs $200,000 when fully optioned, about twice as much as online publications inaccurately say Kim’s SUV is worth. But that’s still half as much as a Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
Kim picked up the Range Rover in late 2022 and had it wrapped in satin silver at Platinum Group. It’s possible that she wanted an upgrade or was approached by RDB to receive the world’s first 1016 widebody kit. If you remember, Kim gave her Urus and Maybach GLS a unique look and has a fleet of luxury vehicles. Alternatively, this might also be Kanye West’s new car, since he also likes this style of wrap and blocky wheels, but we doubt it.
Even without celebrity ownership, this is an amazing build. 1016 Industries is the world-famous fabricator of widebody packages for the Lamborghini Urus and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. And because this is a prototype, we don’t know what it costs, but it’s around $50,000.
Range Rover widebody… not cheap
RDB LA has the difficult job of making this kit look right. The parts are most likely 3D-printed, sanded, filled out, and painted with primer. Getting all the gaps in the body to disappear is why a project like this takes time and cost a lot of money.
The widebody treatment itself is pretty subtle, consisting of a chin spoiler, skirts, and fender flares that only add about an inch to either side. At the rear, the diffuser looks less like that of a race car and more like the deck at the back of a yacht. The RDB+1016 team is also working on a roof spoiler and an element that goes on top of the hood, but they haven’t arrived yet.
The 1016 package also includes small inserts which wrap around the lower grille, making it appear sportier. Not that SUV is supposed to be sporty. The new 125.9-inch wheelbase allows for three comfortable rows of seats, and thanks to the standard rear-wheel steering system, it doesn’t turn like a boat on land.
The alloys you see here are the RDB “Zero” wheels, which are only built to order in sizes from 20 to 26 inches, these being 24 inches. As far as we can tell, they’ve only ever been fitted to two vehicles, this being one of them. Prices start at $12,000, but with this example being on the larger side, it’s probably closer to $20,000.
