Land Rovers Most Expensive SUV
If you’ve ever wanted to see the most expensive SUV on the market take a look at the photo below. No it’s not from Porsche, and it’s actually produced by Land Rover. The model is known as the Range Rover SV Autobiography and it retails for $199,495 putting it just below the 200,000 mark, and that’s before any options are added on. The vehicle is more expensive than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S by more than $40,000, putting it out of range for most buyers, but it’s truly a sight to behold.
On the Outside
On the outside of the Range Rover it’s clear that it’s a custom build. The SUV has a two-tone paint job option that isn’t available on any other Rover. The top of the vehicle is black and there are nine different colors to choose from for the bottom portion. The SUV continues the black theme with a large black chrome grille with a high polish. There is also a set of black chrome lettering on the hood and tailgate of the Range Rover.
Inside the Luxury SUV
The interior of the Range Rover is a blend of brushed and textured aluminum. Custom textured aluminum is used on the surround button, the gear selector, the pedals of the vehicle and all the seat adjuster knobs. The same textured aluminum is used on the key fob as well for a real classy touch. Brushed aluminum is used for most of the other features within the vehicle. Both the center and rear consoles are detailed with brushed aluminum.
The seats are very comfortable and highly adjustable, which is expected in this class, but one thing that you won’t see in most standard SUVs is the executive setup that you have in the rear seats. There are fold out work tables as well as a beverage chiller at the back to make it easy to get things done while on the go. Even the floor mats have a nice custom look and feel and are made from twist pile mohair.
The Best Performance
When you invest as much money into a vehicle as Land Rover is asking for this custom Range Rover it’s only reasonable to expect the best in performance, and that’s what you get. The Range Rover comes with Land Rover’s most powerful V8 engine that’s taken from the SVR performance model set to be released soon. The V8 produces 550HP and manages 502 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s highly responsive and feels light on its feet, which is always impressive in an SUV of this size.
The model is set to go on sale this fall, and will premiere at the NY Auto Show in just a few days. The vehicle will be presented along with the Range Rover Sport HST and the Range Rover Sport TD6 Diesel.
