LWB

2018 Range Rover Order Guide gives away unannounced SVAutobiography LWB details & options

Continuing to study the 2018 Range Rover US order guide, I noticed the "Subject of future announcement", as shown here:

my18-l405-sva-lwb

A mistaken drag of my mouse showed that the text was all there, just hidden behind some white boxes.  This also happened in other spots throughout the document.  While the info below the white box hasn’t been officially announced and might be completely wrong, it’s still interesting.  They definitely could have removed the data instead of covering it.  I did a better job removing some data from the original.

Here you go:

******

And some of the more interesting items that were also covered by white boxes – these might have been around in previous years.  I didn’t take a the time to look back but these are just the items that I found in the 2018 documents and all specific to the SVAutobiography or as Land Rover USA calls it, the SVAutobiohraphy[sic] 🙂

Power Deployable Loadspace Floor w/ Carpet Finish $5455
Power Deployable Loadspace Floor w/ Veneer Finish $5455
Both not available with Full-Size Spare

Copper Weave Carbon Fiber $1225

SVO Duo Tone Paint Pallette[sic] $14280

Quilted Poltrona Frau Leather $4490

Vintage Tan Tailgate Event Seating $5815
Ebony Tailgate Event Seating $5815

Last thing – the Interior section ends with "Power Close Rear" which seems kind of unfinished.  My guess right now it’s Power Close Rear Door – like on a Rolls Royce.  We shall see…

Very interesting find!  It could be someone actually ordered their own SVO special or this could be one of the special editions that have been mentioned recently.

Exterior features of the Range Rover Autobiography Black (lots of chrome)

With this latest special edition came the first major round of exterior tweaks, specific to the Autobiography Black:

Autobiography Black Badging & Signature Rear Lamps – along with a  glimpse of the new chrome horizontal trim

Updated finish for front grill (and a green oval!)Range Rover Autobiography Black (3)

 

Side vents get refreshed look with chrome additions and the L badge for the LWB. Land Rover seems to be into these new door badge designations lately – with the Hybrid and the 2014 Discovery getting them too.  I really like how the side vents look, it’s a great compromise between the full Atlas vents and the standard body color.

Here’s another view of the front, the changes to the grill are more noticeable.  The auxiliary vents now getting a metallic surround.  I’m not a huge fan of what they did with those vents.  The metallic vents are one of my favorite little details on the regular Range Rover Autobiography.  But on that model only the horizontal fins are metallic, the actual surround stays body color.  Too me it just seems more elegant with the metallic fins just floating in body color.  This looks heavier and more slapped on.

And finally the 21” 7-spoke polished chrome wheel

I like it.
