Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate: Exterior
Riding on forged, 22-inch alloy wheels with a five-split-spoke design, the SVAutobiography Ultimate’s exterior is finished with Orchard Green paint. There’s a Narvick Black contrast roof with matching door mirrors, and copper detailing around the Range Rover and SV badges. The side vent, bonnet finisher, grille and front bumper accents are all finished in Graphite Atlas.
Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate: Interior
Inside, the interior features Vintage Tan leather and copper weave, carbonfibre finishes. Buyers can also choose leather upholstery from Italian specialists Poltrona Frau. The centre console features a timepiece created by watchmaker Zenith, and a plaque under the knurled rotary shifter commemorates the car’s SV Bespoke origins.
Long-wheelbase models feature power-closing rear doors. In the back, airline-style reclining seats are finished in semi-aniline leather, with heating, cooling and massage functions all provided. Leg room totals 1.2 metres, according to Land Rover, with calf and footrests also provided to maximise passenger comfort.
Meanwhile, fold-out tables can be used to create a moving workspace, and there’s a fridge compartment to store drinks.
Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate: Powertrain
The special edition Range Rover comes with two powertrain options: a supercharged V8 petrol producing 565hp and the plug-in hybrid P400e. The latter is capable of up to 40km of electric-only running.
The Dynamic variant is pitched as the most driver-focused, with suspension and steering tuned for extra agility on the road. Land Rover’s Dynamic Response system helps control body roll, and the ride height is lowered by 8mm for better performance and a more purposeful stance on the move. Dynamic editions are only available in standard-wheelbase form.
