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.

What The Judges Liked about the Range Rover
When judges looked over the Range Rover Sport they were surprised to see all the family-friendly features in the vehicle. It comes with an advanced media system for entertainment, and a spacious interior with comfortable seating for up to seven people. The vehicle is equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control a rearview camera and a navigation system. The vehicle comes with an eight-speaker sound system so everyone can hear the music, even at the back. The SUV is designed to handle rough terrain, and smoothly glides over standard roads. Its such a capable vehicle that’s favored by off-road enthusiasts, but also makes an excellent upscale option for families who value comfort.
The Range Rover Sport benefits from many of the same all-terrain capabilities that the Land Rover is known for, but it comes with a sportier stance that handles very smoothly while out on the road as well. The 5+2 seating is room enough for most families, and offers plenty of cargo room when it isn’t in use.
For these reasons the Range Rover Sport was chosen as the best luxury family option with three seats of space. It’s not the most affordable family-friendly option that you could choose, but it is one of the best luxury values if you really want to spoil your family. If you want a highly-capable ride that you can take with you on camping trips or to go pick up a full load of groceries comfortably the Range Rover is a good bet. It’s not the most practical option, but it has an enticing blend of luxury and enjoyable features that will make any family feel pampered.
