Land Rover has officially unveiled the new Range Rover SVAutobiography, ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show.

Designed to be the most powerful and luxurious Range Rover ever created, the SVAutobiography was developed by the JLR Special Vehicle Operations team and features Graphite Atlas / polished chrome grille, revised "Range Rover" hood lettering and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.  Customers can also order a unique Duo-tone exterior with a Santorini Black upper body and a contrasting lower body in one of nine different colors.

Bigger changes occur in the cabin as there's solid aluminum pedals, luxurious wood trim and new switchgear is mostly machined from solid aluminum and features knurled details.  Rear seat passengers are also treated to a refrigerator and powered deployable tables.  Other notable highlights include solid aluminum coat hooks and "deep twist pile mohair" floor mats.

While the model comes nicely equipped, there are several options include an exclusive sliding load floor which features aluminum and veneer wood flooring.  Customers can also order an "Event Seating" package which adds two Windsor leather seats that can be mounted to the rear tailgate (when folded down).

Under the hood, three different engines are available.  Options include the SDV6 Hybrid, SDV8 and a new supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 550 PS (404 kW) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque.  With the latter engine, the long-wheelbase variant can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h).

The Range Rover SVAutobiography will go on sale this summer and UK pricing starts at £148,900.  U.S. customers will have to wait until the fall and fork over $199,495.
