Range Rover has taken the wraps off its super luxurious SVAutobiography said to combine peerless craftsmanship and technology with new levels of luxury and comfort.
Priced from $372,400 plus on-road costs, the SVAutobiography is offered exclusively in long wheelbase with advanced new convenience features such as power-closing rear doors, reclining airline-style seats and unique Zenith timepiece.
Range Rover says the executive class rear seats are central to the appeal of the luxury new model, offering over 1.2m of legroom while deep seat foams with new comfort interlayers deliver enhanced passenger wellbeing. With a powered 40-degree recline capability, hot stone massage function, heated calf and foot rests, and 22-way adjustment, the rear cabin promises a peerless passenger experience.
A dramatic fixed centre console extends the full length of the cabin and the new model also allows passengers to close the rear doors using conveniently located buttons on the rear console.
Electrically deployable rear tables and integrated rear entertainment screens ensure customers can use the 4G WiFi connectivity to work or relax in comfort, while a concealed refrigerator between the twin rear seats can hold two wine bottles or four 600ml bottles. The right-hand rear seat folds to accommodate long items and customers can also specify a Power Deployable Veneered Loadspace Floor for the first time, making loading and unloading luggage easier.
The new Zenith clock is inspired by the Elite 6150 watch, with its knurled bezel complementing the finish on the start/stop button, gear shifter and pedals.
Elsewhere, JLR’s Touch Pro Duo infotainment system with twin high-definition touchscreen controls is said to be the digital butler for the car. Information can be swiped from one screen to the other, delivering unrivalled functionality and ease of use.
Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, said: “We continue to refine and hone our flagship Range Rover. Highly sophisticated and with a unique combination of British sensibilities, the Range Rover SVAutobiography reinforces Range Rover’s status of peerless excellence.”
The Range Rover SVAutobiography will be hand-finished exclusively at the SVO Technical Centre in Warwickshire, UK, and makes its global motor show debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on 29 November 2017, with Australian order books open on the same day.
