BLINK AND MISS IT The newest Range Rover promises to be the fastest yet. The SVAutobiography Dynamic has been designed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations and follows the Range Rover Sport SVR and the Range Rover SVAutobiography. Appropriately, the all-new car has a little of both of them – the dynamism of the SVR and the luxury of the SVAutobiography. The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic features the same 550 HP supercharged 5.0-liter V8 as the Range Rover Sport SVR but specially calibrated for this latest application. An enormous 502 lb.-ft. of torque means the SVAutobiography Dynamic can reach 60 mph just in 5.1 seconds ** . All of the key mechanical components of the SVAutobiography Dynamic models suspension – knuckles, links, springs and dampers – have been re-engineered by SVO specialists to match the increased performance. Most obviously the ride height is 0.3” lower, which, combined with the red Brembo-branded brakes and standard 21” wheels, gives the vehicle a strikingly stance. The car also benefits from two state-of-the-art technologies, Dynamic Response and Adaptive Dynamics * . Dynamic Response is designed to reduce roll in corners to improve handling and driver and passenger comfort * while Adaptive Dynamics constantly monitors both driver input and the road surface to enhance the driver’s sense of control while still delivering the Range Rover vehicles signature refinement * . Special Vehicle Operations’ design team has created a look with true sporting credentials inside and out. A new finish – Graphite Atlas Silver – is applied to the side vents, grille, front fender accents, as well as the hood lettering and tailgate finisher. The classic Range Rover script is also rendered in the new finish and the SVAutobiography badge contains a distinctive red insert to signify the intent of this car. Inside the SVAutobiography Dynamic gets distinctive diamond-quilted seats, available in four different colors. The knurled finish first seen on the SVAutobiography is applied to key tactile surfaces such as the rotary transmission controller and the start/stop button. The dashboard and door panel trim are finished in Grand Black veneer with the door panel veneer featuring a subtle keyline in red. Finally, for a last touch of elegance, SVO even binds the owners manual of this most extraordinary new Range Rover to match its stunning looks.
