Land Rover decided to use the 2015 New York Auto Show to debut its new flagship Range Rover, named the SV Autobiography. Available in standard or LWB form, the SVA will become the most powerful, luxurious and expensive series-production Range Rover ever created.
Forged at the Special Vehicle Operations’ Technical Centre in the UK, the SVAutobiography features unique exterior design enhancements, an exclusive premium leather interior with unique trim finishes and the option of a 550 HP 5-liter V8 supercharged engine for the first time.
John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations stated that “Range Rover SVAutobiography epitomizes sophisticated design. Our most luxurious specification yet, this vehicle has been crafted with precision and care, culminating in exquisite attention to detail.”
The long-wheelbase-only SV also inherits a new exhaust system with “a subtly enriched engine note,” Brembo front brake calipers, and a new front grille featuring a Graphite Atlas finish and polished chrome garnishes. The combination of the Santorini Black upper body and nine color choices for the lower body create total distinction and individualism.
Rear-seat passengers relax in luxurious seating complete with a chiller compartment and powered deployable tables, and there is the option of a sliding loadspace floor made from aluminum and a choice of veneer options. The floor extends rearwards to optimize practicality and ease of use for loading and unloading. The interior is stocked with high-end monitors and the floorboards are granted with deep twist pile mohair carpet mats. 20-way power front seats and a 1700-watt, 29-speaker Meridian sound system is also fitted in the SV.
The 550 horsepower supercharged V8 is Land Rovers most powerful engine to date, and has been engineered and optimized for absolute comfort and refinement. With maximum torque available at 3,500-4,000 rpm and a smooth and sophisticated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the SVAutobiography provides the perfect blend of power, performance and in-gear flexibility.
Unfortunately the SVAutobiography will not be available for Land Rover customers to purchase, but the good news is that Land Rover Frisco still has a plethora of incredible new and pre-owned luxury SUVs to choose from.
