Meet the two-tone, $200,000 Range Rover SV Autobiography

Land Rover has used the 2015 New York Auto Show to debut its new flagship Range Rover, named the SV Autobiography. Available in standard or LWB form, the SVA will become the most powerful, luxurious and expensive series-production Range Rover ever…

Inheriting the top-level duties previously carried out by the Autobiography Black, the new trim line brings Bentley-like levels of luxury to the popular off-roader. It’ll be outwardly identifiable by its two-tone paintwork (the black upper body is offered in tandem with one of nine other colours), along with a chrome front grille, SV Autobiography badging and new wheels.

Of course, where the SVA really sets itself apart from lowlier Range Rovers is inside: Windsor leather and knurled aluminium abound, while occupants can hang their shooting jackets on the rear coathooks before taking lunch on the stirruped ‘Event Seats’, which deploy from the rear luggage compartment. The most powerful iteration is the 550HP variant of the familiar supercharged 5.0-litre V8, albeit tuned to favour comfort and refinement.

The 2016 Range Rover SV Autobiography will go on sale this year, with prices starting at $199,495 in the USA and £148,900 in the UK.
