Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography: 5 Things You Need To Know

The Velar, otherwise known as the World Car Design of the Year 2018, has been reimagined, with the new edition taking refinement and performance to a whole new level.

Combining power and beauty, here are the key details you need to know about the exciting V8 SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition.

1. Exterior Design

The Range Rover Velar was judged the most beautifully designed vehicle on the planet at the 2018 World Car Awards, yet in typically innovative fashion, Land Rover has still found ways to make it even more breathtaking.

“Building on Velar’s award for 2018 World Car Design of the Year, the 5.0 litre V8 SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition takes refinement and performance to new levels,” says Michael Van Der Sande, Managing Director of Special Vehicle Operations.

Everything about the Dynamic Edition, from its front grille right on through to the features that make it so distinctively Land Rover, epitomises contemporary automotive design. Equipped with a fresh front bumper with larger intakes – as well as a rear lower bumper and side cladding – this is a model that boasts a powerful, head-turning look, no matter where the adventure takes you.

2. Interior Design

The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition’s interior is as pleasing on the eye as its exterior. Its cabin has been created with connectivity, luxury and comfort at the forefront, using magnificent materials and attention to detail to create the ultimate driving experience.

The interior’s appeal is unquestionable thanks to exquisite details such as its unique steering wheel, knurled metal rotary gearshift, aluminium gearshift paddles and optional Carbon Fibre veneers.

Owners of the SVAutobiography will be able to sit back in luxury seating formed by Diamond Quilted perforated Windsor leather. While behind the wheel, they will also benefit from a 20-way movement with heated, cooled, memory and massage settings as standard.

3. Technology

What Land Rover would be complete without the innovative technology and connectivity that has become so synonymous with the iconic British brand? The SVAutobiography comes equipped with a gorgeously integrated Touchscreen Pro Duo 10″ Touchscreen, as well as hidden-until-lit, touch-sensitive switches within the steering wheel.

The new edition’s modern technologies combine seamlessly with the interior’s luxury finishes, with an interactive driver display and rear seat entertainment screens all adding to a driving experience that everyone can enjoy, no matter where they are sitting.

4. Performance & Capability

Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is not just about style; its performance more than matches its beauty. This Velar’s new design features enable an increase in downforce and a reduction in drag, therefore ensuring an even smoother and powerful drive.

As you would expect from a Land Rover, this model is just as capable off the road as it is on it thanks to its intelligent All Wheel Drive system. One of its many carefully engineered technologies is the Variable Valve Active Exhaust System, which uses ‘Fluid Dynamic’ software to guarantee an exhilarating performance and spectacular engine sound.

Traction and fuel economy is optimised with the help of Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, while its 21″ forged alloy wheels ensure precise agility and handling. Those who prefer a bigger wheel option can also opt for the Dynamic Edition’s optional 22″ wheels, available in a choice of two finishes.

5. Engines

There is a reason why the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is the fastest and most powerful Range Rover Velar to ever exist. That reason goes by the name of its 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged engine.

Crafted by the experts at Special Vehicle Operations, the Velar packs an engine that is finely tuned to deliver a mouth-wateringly impressive 550PS.
