Land Rover has a knack for coming up with model names that are a mouthful, but the brand has outdone itself with the nine-word, 65-character 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. Yikes. Land Rover executives seem to acknowledge as much, referring to the new high-end SUV as the Velar SVAD at its 2019 New York International Auto Show debut; I think I’ll do the same.

The SVAD represents a new pinnacle in performance and luxury for the Velar. It’s fitted with an exclusive 550-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and Land Rover claims the SUV can sprint from zero-to-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. Upscale interior trim includes rich leather upholstery, piano-black finishes and aluminum accents. The SVAD is also the only Velar that’s available in Satin Byron Blue, a special matte paint finish.
Pricing hasn’t been announced, but a six-figure price tag isn’t out of the question; the Range Rover Sport Autobiography is just shy of $100,000. Land Rover also says the Velar SVAD will only be offered for the 2020 model year, which should make it even more exclusive.
Check out the photo gallery above to get a good look at the SVAD, and be sure to check out the rest of our comprehensive coverage of the 2019 New York auto show.
