Range Rover SVAutobiography is the most luxurious version yet

Land Rover is set to burst Bentley’s Bentayga bubble with its new, plusher Range Rover SVAutobiography. Unveiled at the 2015 New York Motor Show, it’s the most luxurious and most powerful Range Rover ever, featuring bespoke fittings and a 543bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8.

On sale this summer, the £148,900 SVAutobiography is the work of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division. Available in standard or long wheelbase versions, the new flagship  showcases new two-tone colour combinations – the Santorini Black upper body colour can be paired with nine colours for the lower half. And just in case the striking paint schemes don’t garner enough attention, SVO has fitted new Range Rover lettering on the bonnet, a unique front grille and special SVAutobiography badging.

It’s on the inside where the SVAutobiography really shines though. New machined aluminium trim is fitted upfront, while rear passengers sit on plush leather seats. Thirsty? You can sip champagne from the chiller cabinet, or enjoy a snack using the electrically-operated picnic tables. Mohair carpets and aluminium coat hooks add to the opulent feel inside.
