Land Rover recently introduced a new limited run Velar called the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition.

Designed as the pinnacle of the Velar line-up, the new model has been developed by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations and is powered by a 405kW 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine with a range of unique design enhancements. It will only be on sale for one year.

It accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and is capable of 274km/h.

Also included are uprated brakes and suspension components, plus bespoke settings for everything from the powertrain to the safety systems.

The powerful new model is distinguished by a range of visual enhancements and unique trim finishes.

On the outside, the award-winning mid-size SUV features include 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 with a revised rear bumper featuring integrated quad exhaust finishers.

Even 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 adding a fresh degree of sophistication to the exterior. The SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is also the only Velar available in Satin Byron Blue – a metallic paint finish from Special Vehicle Operations’ Premium Palette range – and all models feature a contrast Narvik Black roof as standard.

The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition will be priced from R1 714 000 and will be introduced to South Africa in the second half of 2019.
