It’s even more expensive than the Bentley Bentyaga.
Just before the LA Auto Show opens its doors, Land Rover has revealed the new Range Rover SVAutobiography as the most luxurious and expensive SUV the automaker has ever produced. Based on the new facelifted 2018 Range Rover, the SVAutobiography is the work of Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations that aims to “create a sanctuary for relaxation that doubles as a mobile technology hub.” Available exclusively in the long wheelbase version, the luxury SUV features the same subtle styling tweaks as the 2018 Range Rover facelift.
Step inside the lavish cabin and you’ll be able to relax in “Executive Class” rear seats that sound like they were lifted from a private jet. The sumptuous seats offer over 1.2 meters of legroom, can be reclined by 40 percent, and also include a hot stone massage function as well as heated calf and foot rests. Rear passengers won’t even be inconvenienced with having to reach out to close the doors – instead they simply press a button on the center console that extends the full length of the cabin. Two rear tables can be electrically deployed and there are also integrated 10-inch touchscreen rear entertainment screens with 4G WiFi connectivity.
A concealed refrigerator between the twin rear seats can also hold two wine bottles or four 600ml bottles. “The Range Rover SVAutobiography is the epitome of luxury, comfort and refinement,” Land Rover chief design officer Gerry McGovern said. “Our standard-bearer for quality and precision exemplifies the attention to detail and sophistication that has been a hallmark of our most luxurious SUV stretching back almost 50 years.” The Range Rover SVAutobiography is available with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 gasoline engine uprated to 565 hp and a plug-in hybrid powertrain with 30 miles of electric range. Unsurprisingly, such opulence doesn’t come cheap.
Prices for the new Range Rover SVAutobiography start at 167,850 GBP ($223,824) in the UK, while the range-topper will set you back a whopping 177,030 GBP ($236,065), making it more expensive than the Bentley Bentayga. Ouch.
