Just a few days remain before the 2015 New York International Auto Show kicks off at the Javitz Center in New York City, and Land Rover has unveiled another Range Rover that will be officially introduced at the event.
Coming from Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is the Range Rover SVAutobiography, which, for the first time ever, offers a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that can produce 547 hp. A video posted to YouTube and a press release issued by Jaguar Land Rover today announced the new production model, stating that this powerful engine was tuned specifically for the SVAutobiography.
“As a result,” the release states, “the SVAutobiography is the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history.”
With 501 ft-lb available in addition to the increased horsepower, the SVAutobiography is capable of both providing a high-powered driving experience and tackling rough terrain. But the newly updated interior ensures that you’re relaxing in luxury during the entire ride. Immaculate detailing is found throughout, from the knurled aluminum foot pedals and rotary controls, to the the chiller compartment and powered deployable tables of the rear.
In addition to the luxurious feel of the rear, SVO created “Event Seating” for this model, meaning the luggage compartment has the ability to be converted into two additional seats. Able to accommodate two adults comfortably on the tailgate lower, these stowable seats are handcrafted from Windsor leather, and are perfect for any outdoor situation that requires additional seating.
On March 24, the Land Rover HST Range Rover was announced as another model set to be unveiled at the New York International Auto Show. Also featuring a supercharged engine, the 3.0-liter V6 improves performance over the current supercharged Range Rover Sport model. For the American market, a diesel variant of the V6 is available for the first time ever.
