MAHWAH, N.J: Land Rover recently announced a new pinnacle for the Range Rover Velar line-up, the one-year only, SV Autobiography Dynamic Edition. Designed and developed by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the new Velar SV Autobiography Dynamic Edition extends the model’s reputation for performance and segment leading luxury with the addition of a much more powerful drivetrain and enhanced interior/exterior design detailing.
The Range Rover Velar was named World Car Design of the Year at the 2018 World Car Awards and is the second model in the Range Rover family to wear the coveted SV Autobiography nameplate, following the introduction of the Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic in 2017. The new Velar SV Autobiography Dynamic Edition holds the distinction of being the fastest and quickest Velar ever; its supercharged 5.0-liter gas V8 engine generates 550hp and 502 lb.-ft. of torque, accelerating from 0-60 mph in as little as 4.3 seconds (0-100 km/h – 4.5 secs) on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 170 mph (270 km/h). On the outside, designers and engineers developed a new front bumper with larger air intakes to feed the supercharged V8 engine while simultaneously helping to cool the uprated braking system. A new grille and lower side mouldings combine with a revised rear bumper featuring integrated quad exhaust finishers. Even the Range Rover lettering on the hood and tailgate have been enhanced with a knurled finish on the metal element of the two-piece letters, adding a fresh degree of sophistication to the exterior.
Distinctive forged aluminum wheels provide another clue to the enhanced performance. The standard fit lightweight 21-inch design weighs the same as the 20-inch wheels on the core model and customers can also specify optional 22-inch rims with a unique Silver Sparkle finish and diamond-turned edging, providing a further degree of personalization. The purposeful exterior is matched by a heightened sense of luxury inside with a carefully curated combination of trim finishes and upholstery. Double-stitched, perforated and quilted Windsor leather is unique to the SV Autobiography Dynamic Edition and adds to the sense of luxury inside. Customers can choose from four color combinations (Ebony, Cirrus, Vintage Tan and Pimento) and the SV Autobiography Dynamic Edition features 20-way adjustable heated and cooled performance front seats with memory and massage functions as standard. The special touches inside extend to the unique sports steering wheel, which features a specially contoured rim and tactile aluminum gear shift paddles.
