Land Rover at the on-going 2014 Geneva Motor Show have unwrapped the brand new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic. The Special Edition model is the most performance oriented version of the Evoque SUV and combines the potent performance with visual upgrades.
Available with three or five doors, styling changes include forged 20-inch wheels and exterior trim parts finished in black. A black contrast roof comes as standard, while the Pheomix orange paint work shown in the pictures is unique to this model. Inside there’s illuminated Autobiography tread plates and the Autobiography logo embossed onto the leather seats.
Under the hood, the Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic is powered by the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine as the standard Evoque. However, this engine has been modified to now deliver 285PS of max power and 400Nm of peak torque. It covers 0 to 100 kmph in 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 225 kmph.
To achieve the additional output figures, Range Rover tinkered with the turbocharger, engine mapping while also adding a new sports exhaust system adding a deep burble to the British crossover. The engine is then mated to a nine-speed ZF transmission driving all four wheels. While the gearbox is an automatic, when fitted to the Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic, it does help to provide an extra kick of performance in the mid-range.
In addition to the upgraded engine, the Dynamic has received improved steering along with tweaked suspension. The suspension now features stiffer springs along with re-calibrated dampers helping to make this latest Evoque more enjoyable to drive. Another key highlight of the Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic is the Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVB) system which comes standard.
The all-new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic will be positioned right at the top of the range - above the existing Pure, Dynamic and Prestige trim levels and will go on sale in the international market by October 2014.
