 Range Rover Sport Autobiography Limited Edition (Video Debut)

Land Rover comes to Los Angeles to present its new Range Rover Sport Autobiography Limited Edition. The model will be presented for its North American customers. The Range Rover Sport line-up will be equipped with a new Autobiography Package available in the 510 horsepower supercharged edition. In the end will offer refinement and elegance to the 2010 model. The carmaker will produce only 250 units this year in Santorini Black. The front and rear headrests are embossed with a unique Autobiography Sport logo while the wood door inserts also bear this special and exclusive insignia. Thanks to its new suspension, the new Sport feels much more agile, more athletic. Grater driver involvement comes with new paddle shifters to select gears manually when desired, revised steering and more powerful brakes. The Autobiography has a starting price of $88.545 and it is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine capable of developing 510 horsepower and 461 lb. ft. of torque. All the output is being sent to the wheels through an automatic transmission. This amount of power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds. The new 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 can produce 375 horsepower and 375 lb. ft. of torque. The car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, just 0.1 seconds slower than the previous supercharged. Both engines conform to stringent ULEV2 emission regulations. The model features a striking new exterior design with new LED headlights, new two-bar grille, revised bumpers and new LED rear light cluster. The ride and handling were also improved thanks to the new Adaptive Dynamics System featuring precise new DampTronic Valve Technology damper units that read suspension movements 500 times / second and adjust to suit the driver. The quality of the interior was also improved.
