Source : 2015 Range Rover SDV8 SVAutobiography LWB review
We drive – as well as fittingly, are driven in – JLR’s latest Special Vehicle Operations creation: the ultra-luxurious Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB The SVAutobiography is actually the completely new Range Rover flagship style, which the company says is actually “exclusively handcrafted at the Special Vehicle Operations technical centre” near Coventry. the idea’s available in both short as well as long-wheelbase versions, the latter coming having a choice of three engines: an SDV6 Hybrid diesel, an SDV8 diesel as well as a completely new variation of the supercharged V8 petrol engine.The petrol V8 has been retuned to match the Range Rover Sport SVR’s outputs. Its power figure rises by 40bhp as well as the torque figure by 41lb ft over the standard supercharged V8 petrol used in lesser Ranger Rovers, to a substantial 543bhp as well as 502lb ft of torque. The most obvious change compared with the standard Range Rover is actually the SVA’s dual rear seats as well as substantial centre console arrangement. The console stores a pair of fold-out aluminium tray tables as well as includes a refrigerated locker which can take two tall glasses as well as a modest bottle.As you might expect, the specification list is actually long as well as comprehensive. The rear seats are electrically adjustable, heated, offer a massage function as well as, inside the long-wheelbase variation, get extendable calf supports. There’s also rear seat entertainment inside the form of a pair of 10.0in screens as well as headphones. The main sound system is actually a 1700W Meridian Signature Reference unit, with speakers even embedded inside the backs of the front seats.A huge panoramic sunroof is actually standard, as are powered rear window blinds as well as a wooden finish for the slide-out boot floor. Much of the Inner surface switchgear is actually made via knurled-finish aluminium as well as the outdoor gets its own graphite finish on the grille as well as various other trim parts. Options include Duo Tone paint (which costs £9000) as well as an even more exclusive walnut wood finish for the boot floor.
