Range Rover Evoque SVAutobiography version planned – Report
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Top-spec variant will boast exclusive luxury features.
It looks like JLR’s newly established Special Vehicle Operation (SVO) division is beginning to pick up steam, with a slew of new products bearing the new nameplate in the pipeline. The latest model launched under the SVO division was the Range Rover SVAutobiography at the 2015 New York Auto Show, which is arguably the most powerful and expensive Range Rover ever made.
However, according to new reports, even the less expensive Range Rover Evoque will soon receive the SVAutobiography treatment. If it’s going to be anything like its bigger brother, expect the Evoque SVAutobiography to feature a two-tone exterior paint; exclusive alloy rims, grille, and exterior trim.
The interior could embrace a custom leather upholstery and textured aluminum, as well as come equipped with a beverage chiller and individual rear seating.
There is no word on the mechanical changes for the SVAutobiography. It’s unclear if SVO will follow the route taken for the Range Rover SVAutobiograhpy and increase the power output, or keep the 2.0-liter engine untouched.
The top-spec Autobiography variant of the pre-facelift model costs USD 60,925 (INR 37.9 Lakhs). Expect the SVAutobiography to carry a huge premium over the faceilifted model’s current top variant – the Evoque Dynamic.
