Land Rover has launched its most exclusive range for the Velar yet, the R-Dynamic Black Limited Edition of its Range Rover Velar SUV. There will only be 500 of the limited-edition variants produced.
The R-Dynamic Black Limited Edition is based on Land Rover’s top-selling D180 R-Dynamic SE Velar and introduces an extensive black finish and interior add-ons to the standard car.
Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director Rawdon Glover said: “The Range Rover Velar R-Dynamic Black builds on Velar’s sophisticated design package, enhancing it for a customer who is looking for an element of differentiation. We look forward to delivering the first limited editions in early this year.”
The Black limited edition features an array of enhancements to style and functionality. The Velar Black Edition includes the Black Exterior Pack as standard which consists of the Narvik Black bonnet and tailgate lettering, grille detail, front bumper vent finisher and bumper accent.
The limited-edition vehicle also features the highly desirable 21” gloss black alloy wheels which deliver the strength and capability to handle the most demanding terrain. There is an elegant, fixed panoramic roof which enhances the sense of space in the vehicle’s interior and floods it with natural light and there’s the laminated front and rear side glass which adds a layer of privacy between you and the outside world.
The Velar is intended to prioritise luxury over performance, which is the preserve of the more focused SVR models. It gives a plusher ride quality than most of its rivals and you can’t ignore the special effort that has been made on the interior with its 20-way adjustable front seats which also have heating, cooling and massage functions.
A choice of dramatic Santorini Black or sophisticated Eiger Grey from Range Rover’s metallic paint collection adds a striking level of individuality. The heated steering wheel gives the ultimate driver comfort and the adaptive dynamics offer an optimum balance of comfort, refinement and agility delivered by the vehicle’s intuitive monitoring of wheel position, diving style and body movements on every terrain.
Retaining the 2.0-litre diesel powertrain of the D180 R-Dynamic SE, the new Velar produces 177bhp, which is delivered through an automatic gearbox to all four wheels. The benchmark sprint of 0-62mph is achieved in 8.4sec, and the top speed is 125mph.
The Range Rover Velar has already been judged as the most ‘beautifully designed vehicle on the planet’, winning the World Car Design of the Year title at the 2018 World Car Awards. Notably, the Velar brings glamour, modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family. The Range Rover Velar offers a unique combination of design excellence and engineering integrity – the new Limited Black Editions are set to further this accolade.
