Range Rover SV Autobiography unveiled as new flagship


Land Rover will unveil the most luxurious and powerful Range Rover ever, the SVAutobiography, at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

Exclusively crafted at Special Vehicle Operations’ (SVO) Technical Centre in the UK, SVAutobiography features unique exterior design enhancements including a two-tone body colour option and front grille finished in distinctive Graphite Atlas and polished chrome.

Inside, much of the driver’s switchgear including the start-stop surround and rotary controls are machined from solid aluminium, as are the foot pedals. This detailing continues to both the front and rear centre consoles, with distinctive materials for the cup holder and socket covers.

Rear-seat passengers relax in luxurious seating complete with a chiller compartment and powered deployable tables. Solid aluminium coat hooks are incorporated into the rear pillars while, on the floor, aluminium seat rail finishers and deep twist pile mohair carpet mats complete the feeling of sumptuous luxury.

Replacing the Autobiography Black at the top of the Range Rover line-up, SVAutobiography is available with the 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine found under the bonnet of the high performance Range Rover Sport SVR. The potent engine produces 405kW and 680Nm, channeled to the wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

A less powerful 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged SDV8 diesel engine packing 250kW and 740Nm torque is also offered.

The Range Rover SVAutobiography, along with the updated 2016 Range Rover line-up, will be unveiled at the New York Auto Show on 3 April.
