Virgin Galactic has always put the customer at the very centre of its business.
Its Future Astronauts from around the world are pioneers in a new space age, which is set to transform our lives. They have played a vital, enabling role and have become a unique community, connected by a passion to open space for the benefit of life on Earth. Land Rover, Virgin Galactic’s exclusive automotive partner, has immortalised this moment in history by creating a special edition Range Rover, the Astronaut Edition, to celebrate the Virgin Galactic Future Astronaut community and its contribution to the democratisation of space.
The Astronaut Edition reflects a design philosophy which combines fit-for-purpose with a simple but elegant beauty; an approach synonymous with the architecture of Virgin Galactic’s spaceflight system. The often remarked upon wooden skid which acts as a highly effective, lightweight braking mechanism within SpaceShipTwo’s landing gear, is a perfect representation of this shared ideology. A part of the skid from a Future Astronauts’ own spaceflight will be engraved and re-fashioned to form an integral part of the Astronaut Edition’s centre console.
Crossing new frontiers and creating incredible design means pushing the boundaries of technology. The ‘Zero Gravity’ exterior colour is unique to the Astronaut Edition. A multi-layered paint that mirrors the inky, infinite depths of a star-filled night sky.
The Virgin Galactic ‘DNA of Flight’ logo, which showcases the progress of aviation and spaceflight through time, adorns the carbon fibre console drawer lid, and is also embossed onto the seat. The story begins with Icarus and ends with Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo.
Further detailing takes the form of the iconographical representation of 58 stars in a constellation, one for every nation represented in the future astronaut community.
Land Rover and Virgin Galactic are committed to a future of transportation which is clean and sustainable. The Astronaut Edition is equipped with Land Rover’s advanced 404hp plug-in hybrid where available. A sustainable solution, without compromising performance, experience or design.
