Range Rover Velar gets 550 hp V8 engine

Land Rover has waited a long time, but now puts their 5.0 liter V8 with supercharger in the Range Rover Velar. Introducing the exclusive Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition.

A few days after the confirmation of the cancellation of the exclusive Range-Rover SV Coupé, Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations department is again causing some distraction. The name of their latest project is impressive: the Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition.

It is the first version of the Range Rover Velar that can count on the 550 hp and 680 Nm strong 5.0 Supercharged V8, an engine that we know from the fast SVR versions of Range Rover. Thanks to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the SUV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and the top speed is only reached at 274 km/h.

To manage the power and take the sporting capabilities to the next level, Land Rover has made adjustments to the powertrain electronics, suspension, 4WD system, brakes and automatic gearbox. A new exhaust with butterfly valves provides a nice, sporty sound and is more than 7 kilograms lighter than the standard exhaust.

On the outside, the special Velar can be recognized by a series of unique design elements such as a new grille, a front bumper with larger air intakes, side skirts, a new rear bumper with four integrated exhaust tailpipes, 21- or 22-inch wheels and red or black brake calipers.

A special detail: the Range Rover lettering on the hood has a ribbed finish. This also applies to various buttons in the luxurious interior, which is further finished with double-stitched Windsor leather, which is available in four color combinations.

Furthermore, the standard equipment consists of electrically adjustable seats with a memory and massage function and, as icing on the cake, Land Rover provides a unique start screen on the 12.3-inch screen.

The new Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is available in six exterior colours, the Satin Byron Blue exterior is available exclusively on the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition, but the roof is always finished in Narvik Black.

The Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is available to order now. Come into the beautiful world of Range Rover.
