An awesome modern range cooker?

Looking for a new range cooker for our dream kitchen. I like Rangemasters, my wife likes FANTASTICALLY expensive Falcon ranges. Are they really that different? They're both made by Aga aren't they?

My wife and I are building a new kitchen in our house with very modern clean lines. My dream kitchen, hooray!
We both adore cooking, so we've promised ourselves a big, modern, awesome range cooker. A 100cm wide multi-burner, multi-cavity monster originally budgeted in the £1100- £1600 price range.
I've found a really nice Rangemaster (and a reconditioned SMEG). My wife is keen to spend more than twice our cooker budget on a Falcon range - which as far as I can tell is from the same company: Aga-Rangemaster.
If there's anyone who knows these brands, what exactly is my extra £2000 going to on a Falcon? Thicker steel? A fancy name? Different colours? Is it actually £2000 better?
We're lucky enough that we can probably stretch to it if it's worth it, but I'd rather not if it's just luxury branding on an otherwise normal range cooker.
Also open to other suggestions!
