The Velar is possibly one of the best looking SUVs out there. Land Rover have made it more appealing with the addition of a high-powered SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition to take on likes of GLC63s and X4M.
Upfront, there is a new front bumper with larger air intakes to feed the V8 Supercharged engine and cool the uprated braking system. A new grille and lower side mouldings combine to complete the front look. At the back, there is a revised rear bumper with prominent and integrated quad exhaust finishers. The exterior changes pool together with a transmission tunnel undertray.
To set the model apart even more from the rest of the range, 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.
The car is available with 21inch forged aluminium wheels but customers can also specify optional 22-inch rims with a unique Silver Sparkle finish and diamond-turned edging or with a Dark Grey finish. Larger diameter 395mm front and 396mm rear brake discs feature two-piece construction to optimise weight and dissipate heat more effectively while red brake calipers with Land Rover lettering are also offered. Gloss Black calipers are also available.
The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is available in six exterior colours; Firenze Red; Santorini Black; Eiger Grey; Fuji White; Indus Silver and Satin Byron Blue. The car is also the only Velar available in Satin Byron Blue. All models feature a contrasting Narvik Black roof as standard.
Inside, trim finishes include twin-stitched, perforated and quilted Windsor leather. The SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition also features 20-way adjustable heated and cooled front seats with memory and massage functions as standard. Additionally, buyers get a unique sports steering wheel and a knurled finish for the rotary gear selector and Touch Pro Duo infotainment circular control dials.
The Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is powered by a 405kW and 680Nm 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine that is paired with an eight-speed transmission. The powerful new model accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and is capable of reaching a top speed of 274km/h.
Not only does the Velar get more power but special attention has been given to AWD system, Active Rear Locking Differential, eight-speed transmission, steering, anti-roll bars rand air suspension by engineers at Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations. The engineers have made the systems bespoke to the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. In addition, the advanced Intelligent Driveline Dynamics system has been configured to precisely and imperceptibly distribute engine torque to suit the conditions. The set-up can direct as much as 100 per cent to the rear depending on the conditions.
Finally, the whole neighbourhood will know that you have bought a Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition as the Variable Active Exhaust System features valve technology to optimise the exhaust note, depending upon the driving conditions, and provides Velar with a distinct V8 rumble.
The SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is priced from R1,743,325 including VAT and CO2 tax. The car is available to purchase for one year only.
