Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations present two new Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate editions, one based on the long-wheelbase variant and the other based on the driver-focused SVAutobiography Dynamic. This edition elevates the range-topping models even higher with a suite of complementary hand-finished SV Bespoke features.
Special Vehicle Operations (SV) is a specialist team of designers, engineers and technicians “dedicated to amplifying the performance, luxury and capability attributes” of JLR vehicles. SV Bespoke – a team of specialists within SV’s Vehicle Personalisation division – undertakes one-of-a-kind special commissions, limited-edition vehicles, SV Bespoke Premium Palette and SV Bespoke Match-To-Sample paint finishes.
The new Ultimate editions were curated by the SV Bespoke team to showcase the full range of personalisation touches that can be applied to the two Range Rover models. Key to the Ultimate edition’s design theme is the combination of newly formulated satin-finished Orchard Green paintwork complemented by a Narvik Black roof and copper detailing.
The SV Bespoke team’s enhancements include the Gloss Black knurled infill and copper-edged metal Range Rover badging on the bonnet and tailgate, a copper-plated and black enamel SV roundel on the B-pillar, SV roundels embroidered on all four headrests, plus illuminated Ultimate edition treadplates. The finishing touch is an ‘SV Bespoke Ultimate edition’ commissioning plaque on the centre console, complete with copper-finished SV roundel.
Clare Hansen, Director, Land Rover Vehicle Personalisation, said: “Our SV Bespoke commissioning experts have taken the classic combination of green and black exterior and given it a thoroughly modern twist, using a contemporary satin paint finish and copper detailing. This elegant combination is strengthened further with the recommended Vintage Tan interior themes available.”
The long-wheelbase SVAutobiography variant provides first-class travel with serene refinement for those who prefer to be driven. The refinements in this variant begin with power-closing rear doors. Inside, reclining airline-style heated and cooled semi-aniline leather Executive Class Comfort-Plus rear seats provide over 1.2m of rear legroom, hot stone massage function, plus calf and footrests for rear occupants. A full-length centre console with an integrated Zenith timepiece, refrigerated compartment and deployable tables creates the perfect space to work and relax on the move.
The recommended Ultimate edition specification features Vintage Tan leather interior trim and Copper Weave Carbon Fibre finishers. Customers can also opt for leather upholstery from the Italian artisans at Poltrona Frau for a “truly cosseting experience.”
This flagship model is available with a choice of powertrains, including the 565PS Supercharged V8 petrol and the highly efficient P400e plug-in hybrid. The latter is capable of up to 40km (25 miles) of all-electric driving.
SVAutobiography Dynamic is the driver-focused variant and is therefore available with the standard-wheelbase. The recommended interior theme features Ebony or Vintage Tan trim with diamond-quilted semi-aniline leather seats, an Ebony headlining and Steel Weave Carbon Fibre finishers. Other highlights include a knurled finish for the rotary shift controller, starter button and pedals, plus anodised Red paddle shifters.
For elevated performances, the Dynamic variant is powered by the exclusively tuned Supercharged V8 petrol engine with 565PS. The suspension geometry and steering calibration are optimised to provide more agile responses. Land Rover’s advanced Dynamic Response active roll control system enhances composure. At the same time, the ride height is lowered by 8mm – delivering more engaging on-road driving dynamics and a more purposeful stance. Forged 22-inch alloy wheels feature a five split-spoke design finished in Gloss Dark Grey with contrast Diamond Turned finish, while side vent, bonnet finisher, grille and front bumper accents are all finished in Graphite Atlas.
Mark Turner, Commercial Director, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, said: “Range Rover has defined the luxury SUV segment for more than half a century, with our SVAutobiography models offering customers a world-class travel experience – whether driving, or being driven. These new Ultimate editions elevate that refinement and sophistication even further.”
