Range Rover’s SVAutobiography Ultimate Could Be Their Best SUV Yet.

The New Range Rover SVAutobiography Ultimate could be the poshest Rangie yet.

Land Rover has unveiled a new set of ‘Ultimate’ Editions of the L405 Range Rover. The New SVAutobiography and SVAutobiography Dynamic Ultimate Editions represent the pinnacle of all this generation can offer – which is a fitting way to bow out.

What was once most people’s first choice for a posh off-roader is now forced to compete with everything from the top end of the Volvo XC90 and Porsche Cayenne right up to the ultra-luxury Bentley Bentayga, Aston Martin DBX and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

Range Rover’s making two variants available, with the short-wheelbase taking the rather long-winded name of SVAutobiography Dynamic Ultimate Edition. It costs from around €174,000 while you’ll have to empty the bank of an eye-watering €217,000 for the long-wheelbase one, this time more simply named the SVAutobiography Ultimate Edition.

Those approximate prices are both for the 557bhp supercharged V8 models – the only engine available for the Dynamic, though long-wheelbase Ultimates can be had with other engines including the plug-in hybrid P400e.

Both models include what Land Rover calls ‘a suite of complimentary hand-finished SV Bespoke features’. The first distinction is clear from the outset, with a new satin-finish Orchard Green paint colour and contrasting black roof. Copper detailing features throughout, including the gloss-black, copper-edged badges front and rear.

Inside, there’s more copper detailing, plus SV roundels embroidered on all four headrests and illuminated treadplates.
