Land Rover will unveil the Range Rover SVAutobiography at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, adding elevated luxury, design sophistication and performance to the flagship model line.
Exclusively crafted at the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) Technical Center in the UK, SVAutobiography features unique exterior design enhancements, an exclusive premium leather interior with unique trim finishes and a 550hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. As a result, the SVAutobiography is the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history.
The key to the increase in performance of the SVAutobiography is the optimization of the Bosch engine management system and retuning of the Roots-type twin vortex supercharger’s electronic bypass valve, to increase maximum available boost pressure during high-performance driving.
With maximum torque available at 3,500rpm and a smooth and sophisticated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the SVAutobiography provides a breath-taking blend of performance, in-gear flexibility and refinement. The ZF eight-speed automatic transmission continues to offer seamless gear changes and an adaptive-shift logic that intelligently adjusts to driver behavior. The advanced transmission can also be controlled via the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifts, ensuring the perfect combination of refinement and driver engagement.
A new exhaust system with distinctive quad polished chrome tailpipes ensures optimal flow rates and a subtly enriched engine note for this performance-oriented luxury model. The 550hp engine has been engineered and optimized for unparalleled comfort and refinement, and features Brembo front brake calipers in gloss black finish.
Customers of the Range Rover SVAutobiography are able to specify a unique Dual-tone body color option. The combination of Santorini Black upper body and nine color choices for the lower body create true distinction and individualism.
