Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition oozes opulence, boosts performance

Enlarge Image Giant air intakes are usually a good indicator that you're dealing with something fun.                  Land Rover

Although with this being an SVAutobiography and not the more focussed SVR, the drive modes can also be wound back to provide a more forgiving setup, enabling what Land Rover claims is "uncompromised composure, capability and refinement" on the road, despite all those new bits. Underneath the SUV, a new transmission under-tray helps smooth airflow for better aerodynamics. Upgraded anti-roll bars combined with a revised variable damping system ensure handling matches the pace on offer.

On the outside, the award-winning mid-size SUV features include a new front bumper with larger air intakes to feed the V8 Supercharged engine and cool the uprated braking system.

Even the Range Rover lettering on the bonnet and tailgate has been enhanced, with a knurled finish on the metal element of the two-piece letters adding a fresh degree of sophistication to the exterior. Land Rover says that it will only be offering this particular version of the Velar for one year only, though we're hoping that after all the hard work involved in bringing the SUV and the supercharged V8 together that it will spawn a longer-lasting version after that.

Land Rover has also recalibrated the SVA's steering, all-wheel drive, eight-speed transmission and active rear differential, claiming almost 64,000 man hours of fine-tuning to the car's control systems.

The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition rides on standard 21-inch forged aluminum wheels (22-inch rims are optional) that accommodate larger brakes - 395 mm and 396 mm diameter front and rear brake discs, respectively. For those customers wanting a less conspicuous appearance, the calipers can be had in gloss black as well. No matter the color, every model comes standard with a Narvik Black roof.

The sports steering wheel features a special rim and aluminium gear shift paddles. The Velar's 12.3-inch interactive driver display gets an SVAutobiography startup screen, too. "The result is a composed and luxurious SUV that looks, sounds and feels unique". The advanced Intelligent Driveline Dynamics system precisely and imperceptibly distributes engine torque to suit the conditions. It also comes with air suspension and an active exhaust system.

Until the red-blooded Velar SVR arrives, probably sometime later this year, the SVAutobiography will also be quickest vehicle of the line-up, hitting 62mph in 4.5 seconds. The 82 l fuel tank points to driving range of at least 483 km.

New Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is available in six exterior colours: Firenze Red; Santorini Black; Corris Grey; Fuji White; Indus Silver and, Satin Byron Blue, by special order.

The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is priced from £86,120 (about $112,100) in the UK.
