The powerful new model is distinguished by a range of visual enhancements and unique trim finishes, delivering a more purposeful appearance and heightened attention to detail while maintaining Velar’s perfect proportions and distinctive silhouette.

On the outside, the high-performance SUV features a new front bumper with larger air intakes to feed the V8 Supercharged engine and cool the uprated braking system. A new grille and lower side mouldings combine with a revised rear bumper featuring integrated quad exhaust finishers.

The Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition also comes in an exclusive Satin Byron Blue, metallic paint finish from Special Vehicle Operations’ Premium Palette range. The special edition also features a contrast Narvik Black roof as standard.

The Range Rover lettering on the bonnet and tailgate gets a knurled finish on the metal element of the two-piece letters. The SUV will be available in 6 exterior colours – Firenze Red, Santorini Black, Corris Grey, Fuji White, Indus Silver and, by special order, Satin Byron Blue.

The fastest Velar also rides on specially designed 21-inch lightweight forged aluminium wheels. Customers can also opt for the optional 22-inch rims with a unique Silver Sparkle finish and diamond-turned edging further enhancing the look of the SUV.

Under the hood of this high-performance SUV sits a supercharged 550PS 5.0-litre V8 engine making it the most powerful Velar to hit the road. The SUV accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds (0-60mph in 4.3 seconds) and is capable of reaching speeds up to 274km/h (170mph).

The engineers at the Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations have added a transmission tunnel undertray to ensure the fastest Velar in the range cuts through the air more efficiently.

The special edition of the Velar also comes with larger brakes. The 395mm front and 396mm diameter rear brake discs feature a two-piece construction to optimise weight. The innovative designs also dissipate heat more effectively to cope with the higher braking forces generated during high-performance driving. The brake callipers are painted in red colour with Land Rover lettering. Customers can also opt for Gloss Black callipers for a more discreet appearance.

The luxury of the interior is heightened by the carefully curated combination of finishes and upholstery. The twin-stitched, perforated and quilted Windsor leather is unique to the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition and is available in four colour combinations (Ebony, Cirrus, Vintage Tan and Pimento). The special edition also comes with 20-way adjustable heated and cooled front seats with memory and massage functions as standard.

Further, the luxury SUV gets a unique sports steering wheel, which features a specially contoured rim and tactile aluminium gear shift paddles. The rotary gear selector and control dials for the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system all feature a sophisticated knurled finish. An optional carbon fibre pack for the interior is available as well.

The 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display features unique ‘digitally knurled’ dials and a bespoke SVAutobiography Dynamic start-up screen. Sports pedals and illuminated metal treadplates with Range Rover lettering complete the look inside the SUV.

Calibrations for the AWD system, Active Rear Locking Differential, eight-speed transmission, steering and air suspension have all been honed and are bespoke to the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition and deliver a more focused driving experience.

The Velar Dynamic Edition also gets upgraded anti-roll bars which help to reduce body roll during hard cornering and the revised set-up for the Continuously Variable Dampers works in combination with firmer air springs for the air suspension to deliver the ultimate balance of composure and comfort.

The all-wheel-drive system has been uprated too with a transfer box capable of withstanding the higher loads generated by the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. The advanced Intelligent Driveline Dynamics system precisely and imperceptibly distributes engine torque to suit the conditions. The set-up can direct as much as 100 per cent to the rear depending on the conditions.

Speed-sensitive Electric Power Assisted Steering is fitted as standard, minimising effort at parking speeds but delivering precise and direct control at higher speeds, while the Velar’s Dynamic mode has been enhanced, optimising the steering, suspension and transmission settings to suit more enthusiastic on-road driving.

The unique character of the Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is also reflected by its bespoke exhaust set-up, which provides a soundtrack to match its performance. SV’s Variable Active Exhaust System features valve technology to optimise the exhaust note, depending upon the driving conditions and provides Velar with an unmistakable V8 rumble. The active set-up is 7.1kg lighter than the standard design and its increased gas flow helps to unlock some of the flagship model’s increased performance.
