2020 Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. The new flagship Velar adopts Land Rover’s mighty supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 542 horsepower (405 kilowatts) and 502 pound-feet (680 Newton-meters) of torque. The beefy engine is hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission and enables the high-performance SUV run to 62 mph (100 kph) in just four and a half seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 170 mph (274 kph).
There’s more to the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition than its supercharged heart as the engineers have tweaked the all-wheel-drive system with an uprated transfer box able to cope with the grunt coming from underneath the hood. It took a whopping 63,900 hours to optimize the handling, ride, and responsiveness and make sure everything is perfectly calibrated for the more aggressive nature of Land Rover’s speedy SUV.
Developed by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the crown jewel of the Velar range had to be equipped with larger brakes to make sure these would be a match for the SUV’s higher velocity. There are 395-mm front and 396-mm rear discs with a two-piece construction to save weight, and these are matched with red brake calipers and standard 21-inch forged wheels or even an optional 22-inch set.
Changes to the bodywork include a redesigned front bumper with more generous air intakes necessary to keep the engine and brakes nice and cool. At the back, the menacing quad exhaust tips denote it’s not an ordinary Velar. Those red brake calipers we’ve mentioned earlier can be had in a glossy black finish for a more subtle appearance.
Stepping inside the cabin, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition gets a sportier steering wheel paired with aluminum gear shift paddles. Just to make it a bit more special than the lesser versions, there’s a knurled finish for the infotainment system’s control dials and also for the rotary gear selector. At an additional cost, a sportier vibe can be achieved courtesy of a carbon fiber pack.
U.S. pricing details are not available, but over in the U.K, the new top-spec Velar starts off at £86,120. It will be available for only a year.
