While Range Rovers have always had their share of luxury appointments, none have ever come close to the new SVAutobiography model, which will be unveiled at the New York International Auto Show.
The SVAutobiography, a product of Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) Tech Centre, features interior details exclusive to the model and a two-tone paint option that mates a black upper body and a choice of nine colors for the bottom half.
Inside this top-of-the-line Range Rover is a host of luxury features. Switchgear, pedals and controls are made of machined aluminum. Occupants in the back seat can rest their feet on mohair mats while having a cold beverage from the chiller compartment. They can also place their drinks on powered tables and hang their coats on aluminum coat hooks.
Around back, the cargo bay can be optioned with a sliding loadspace made of aluminum and wood veneer. The SVAutobiography is equipped with two aluminum and leather seats that can be placed on the opened tailgate for outdoor use. When not in use, the seats are stowed in the luggage compartment.
The SVAutobiography can be equipped with any of Land Rover’s available powertrains, but new for the model is a supercharged, all-aluminum 5.0-liter V8 making more than 500 horsepower. It’s the most powerful engine ever put into a Range Rover, and is mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.
TFLcar will be covering the New York show live, so stay tuned.
