The Range Rover Velar gets a 405 kW V8 … and it goes to SA.

Land Rover supercharged the 405 kW 5-liter V8 into the Range Rover Velar to make this a new SVAutobiography dynamic edition. It will be launched in South Africa in the second half of 2019, R1 714 000.

Developed by Land Rover Special Vehicles, this new model will be sold by dealers for just one year.

Thanks to an 8-cylinder engine (coupled to the four corners via an 8-speed automatic transmission), the British company said that the Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition can accelerate from 274 km / h to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds.

The new model boasts 395 mm disc front, 396 mm rear brakes and suspension components, and a Land Rover braking design, "customized settings for everything from powertrain to safety systems."

So how do you identify one on the road? Well, SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition features a model-specific front bumper with larger air intakes and a new grille, and includes a new lower side molding and modified rear bumper design (now featuring an integrated quad exhaust pipe).

The "Range Rover" lettering of the bonnet and tailgate is lined finish. SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is the only Velar available with Satin Byron Blue metallic paint finish. Regardless of which of the six exterior colors is specified, the Narvik Black roof is standard.

Lightweight 21-inch alloys are also part of the package and 22-inch items are available as an option. An additional Red Brake Carrier featuring "Land Rover" lettering is included.

Inside, there are twin stitches, perforated and quilted Windsor leather (choose from four colors) unique to SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition, 20 seat adjustable heating and cooling front seats with memory and massage features.

The cabin also features a unique sports steering wheel with a "special shaped rim" and aluminum gearbox. The Touch Pro Duo infotainment system's rotary gear selector and circular control dial all have a repeating theme of the 12,3-inch dashboard dial, with a wide finish (albeit digital).
