Land Rover has unveiled special editions of its most exclusive Range Rover model.
The super exclusive ‘Ultimate’ versions of the Range Rover SV are being made on the edge of Coventry at the car maker’s Special Vehicle Operations centre in Ryton.
The SV Bespoke personalisation team has said the new Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate editions represent the pinnacle of Land Rover’s luxury SUV family.
The Ultimate versions elevate the range-topping Range Rover SVAutobiography and SVAutobiography Dynamic models even higher with a suite of complementary hand-finished SV Bespoke features.
Buyers will need to have deep pockets though, with the cheaper of the two models costing from almost £150,000.
Curated by the SV Bespoke commissioning experts at the Special Vehicle Operations Technical Centre, the Ultimate editions showcase the full range of personalisation touches that can be applied to the timeless Range Rover design.
Key to the exclusive Ultimate edition design theme is the combination of newly formulated satin-finished Orchard Green paintwork complemented by a Narvik Black roof and copper detailing.
The SV Bespoke team’s attention to detail extends to the Gloss Black knurled infill and copper-edged metal Range Rover badging on the bonnet and tailgate, a copper-plated and black enamel SV roundel on the B-pillar, SV roundels embroidered on all four headrests, plus illuminated Ultimate edition treadplates.
The finishing touch is an ‘SV Bespoke Ultimate edition’ commissioning plaque on the centre console, complete with copper-finished SV roundel.
Mark Turner, commercial director, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, said: “Range Rover has defined the luxury SUV segment for more than half a century, with our SVAutobiography models offering customers a world-class travel experience – whether driving, or being driven.
“These new Ultimate editions elevate that refinement and sophistication even further.”
Clare Hansen, director, Land Rover vehicle personalisation, said: “ Our SV Bespoke commissioning experts have taken the classic combination of a green and black exterior and given it a thoroughly modern twist, using a contemporary satin paint finish and copper detailing.
“This elegant combination is strengthened further with the recommended Vintage Tan interior themes available.”
The SVAutobiography Ultimate models are available in standard or long wheelbase form.
The long-wheelbase SVAutobiography provides a first class-style cabin including power-closing rear doors.
Reclining airline-style heated and cooled semi-aniline leather rear seats provide over 1.2m of rear legroom, hot stone massage function, plus calf and footrests for rear occupants.
A full-length centre console with integrated Zenith timepiece, refrigerated compartment and deployable tables creates a space designed to help people work or relax on the move.
The recommended Ultimate edition specification features Vintage Tan leather interior trim and Copper Weave Carbon Fibre finishers. Customers can also opt for leather upholstery from the Italian artisans at Poltrona Frau for a truly cosseting experience.
This flagship model is available with a choice of powertrains, including the 565PS supercharged V8 petrol and P400e plug-in hybrid, which is capable of up to 25 miles of all-electric driving and provides overall CO2 emissions as low as 75g/km.
The exclusively 565PS Supercharged V8 petrol SVAutobiography Dynamic is the most driver-focused of the pair.
Available only as a standard-wheelbase vehicle, the suspension geometry and steering calibration are optimised to provide more agile responses. Land Rover’s advanced Dynamic Response active roll control system also enhances composure, while the ride height is lowered by 8mm – delivering more engaging on-road driving dynamics and a more purposeful stance.
Forged 22-inch alloy wheels feature a five split-spoke design finished in Gloss Dark Grey with contrast Diamond Turned finish, while side vent, bonnet finisher, grille and front bumper accents are all finished in Graphite Atlas.
Inside, a knurled finish for the rotary shift controller, starter button and pedals, plus anodized red paddle shifters, underline the performance focus of SVAutobiography Dynamic.
The recommended SVAutobiography Dynamic interior theme features Ebony/Vintage Tan trim with diamond-quilted semi-aniline leather seats, an ebony headlining and Steel Weave carbon fibre finishers.
The New Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate edition with 565PS Supercharged V8 is priced from £183,706 on the road.
The SVAutobiography Dynamic equivalent is priced from £147,441.
