Land Rover has launched the range-topping SV Autobiography variant of its flagship Range Rover in India, starting at Rs.2.80 crore (ex-showroom). The SV Autobiography is designed and engineered by the Bespoke Division of Special Vehicle Operations (SVO). The SVO Bespoke model is not based on the new facelifted 2018 car that was recently exposed but on the long-wheel-base 2017 Range Rover. The company will have only five units available for sale in India. The special edition will get similar engine options to that on the standard Range Rover – a diesel and a supercharged petrol. While the diesel is a 4.4-litre V8 producing 335hp, the petrol is a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 unit that put out a massive 543hp.
Based on the Long Wheelbase variant of the 2017 Range Rover, the edition is available in 4.4-litre SDV8, 340PS Diesel and 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged, 550PS Petrol options. Commenting on the launch, Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL), said, “We are excited to introduce the Range Rover Autobiography by SVO Bespoke. The exquisite individualization options give our discerning customers the opportunity to be a part of a unique automotive experience which gives them the chance to design the look and feel of their vehicle.”
The Range Rover Autobiography by SVO Bespoke offers a choice of two unique external paint options – Bespoke Gloss Black with Copper Flake and Bespoke Satin Petrol Blue. In addition, body coloured mirror caps, an exterior accent pack, and choice of 21-inch and 22-inch alloy wheels are also available. On the inside, a range of Autobiography interior colourways, Bespoke Kalahari Veneer for the center console, bespoke detailing and badging across the vehicle, as well as Rear Executive Seating with Cooler Box, add the next level luxury to the Range Rover Autobiography.
