Land Rover‘s mid-range model of the Range Rover family Velar has finally gained a top of the line variant with the introduction of the Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition by Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division.
The biggest highlight of the new variant of the SUV is the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine under its hood that makes 542 hp and 680 Nm of torque. With the new engine, Velar is now capable of going from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and can go up to a top speed of 274 km/h. To keep up with the gained power and speed, Velar’s brakes and suspensions have also been modified.
Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition gets a lot of design changes too to stand out of the normal lineup. It gets a new front bumper with larges air intakes, a new grille, redesigned rear bumper with integrated quad exhausts. It rides on 21-inch forged wheels as standard, while 22-inch diamond-turned finished set is available as an option. Land Rover has also introduced exclusive Satin Byron Blue paintwork for the dynamic edition. Contrast Narvik Black roof will be standard across all body colours.
“The Range Rover Velar strikes a perfect balance between go-anywhere practicality, dynamic performance and relaxing comfort. By enhancing the luxury and dynamic characteristics even further we have created the pinnacle of the Velar range,” said Rawdon Glover, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK.
The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is developed by Land Rover’s SVO division. Michael van der Sande, Managing Director, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, said: “Developing the Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is the kind of task Special Vehicle Operations was made for. The challenge here was to increase performance without compromising the composure, capability and refinement inherent in Range Rover Velar.”
