Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) has announced plans for a new range-topping version of the Range Rover.

This new model will be positioned above the £156,000 SVAutobiography long wheelbase and according to SVO's managing director John Edwards it could hit the £200,000 mark. This will be Land Rover's answer to the Bentley Bentayga and the upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan and it's being billed as the "ultimate Range Rover" set to feature even more personalization options, unique paint schemes and a tailored interior.

The ultra-luxurious Range Rover is programmed to come out sometime next year and according to Edwards this new higher-end version makes sense taking into account the "Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and everyone accepts that." That being said, he went on to specify it's important for the company to keep offering the SUV with a sub £100,000 price tag for the lesser versions, but he does admit at the other end of the spectrum the price tag can be stretched beyond the current £156,000 of the SVAutobiography long wheelbase.
