For 2016 Range Rover has debuted ahead of the New York Auto Show its top-of-the-line SVAutobiography. From its price to its powerplant, everything about this SUV just screams, “look at me. I’m loaded!”

The marque brags, “the SVAutobiography is the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history.” It should be with an MSRP of $199,495 (plus dealer prep charges, of course).

The SVAutobiography can be had with a 550-horsepower supercharged V8 engine that produces 502 lb-ft of torque, and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission is standard. It all flows out through a custom quad-pipe exhaust system with a distinctive exhaust note. You know, so blind people can tell you’re driving a really expensive SUV too.

No expense was spared on the interior either. Much of the vehicle’s controls, including the start-stop surround, rotary gear selector and pedals are machined from solid aluminum with knurled details. Rear-seat passengers can chill with a beverage-cooling compartment and powered deployable tables.

Probably the most distinctive element of the SVAutobiography is going to be its paint job. Ranger Rover says customers can choose a dual-tone body color option with Santorini Black upper body and nine color choices for the lower body.

The Range Rover SVAutobiography also gets unique hood lettering and the tailgate is adorned with new SVAutobiography badging. A new front grille is finished in distinctive Graphite Atlas and polished chrome.
