Exclusively crafted at the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) Technical Center in the UK, SVAutobiography features unique exterior design enhancements, an exclusive premium leather interior with unique trim finishes and a supercharged 550-horsepower, 5.0-liter V8 engine. As a result, it is the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history.
John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, said, “Range Rover originally defined the luxury SUV segment and the new SVAutobiography, developed by
Special Vehicle Operations, takes Range Rover to another level of comfort,
craftsmanship and refinement.”
Replacing the Autobiography Black at the top of the Range Rover lineup, SVAutobiography has a powerful supercharged V8 engine. Shared with the Range Rover Sport SVR, and tuned specifically for the SVAutobiography, this potent engine produces an outstanding 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. The key to the increase in performance of the SVAutobiography is the optimization of the Bosch engine management system and retuning of the Roots-type twin vortex supercharger’s electronic bypass valve, to increase maximum available boost pressure during high-performance driving.
With maximum torque available at 3,500 rpm and a smooth and sophisticated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the SVAutobiography provides a breath-taking blend of performance, in-gear flexibility and refinement. The ZF eight-speed automatic transmission continues to offer seamless gear changes and an adaptive-shift logic that intelligently adjusts to driver behavior. The advanced transmission can also be controlled via the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifts, ensuring the perfect combination of refinement and driver engagement.
