Land Rover has revealed the Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic - its most performance-orientated model ever. Fitted with a tuned version of the existing 2.0-litre turbo producing 281bhp and 400Nm of torque, It covers 0-60mph in 6.7 seconds on its way to a 140mph top speed.
On top of the 44bhp and 60Nm increase over the standard Evoque Si4, the Autobiography Dynamic get a new sports exhausts system for a throatier sound, and retuned steering for faster reactions just off centre. There’s also new suspension geometry, firmed spring rates, recalibrated adaptive dampers and larger 350mm front brake discs.
The new nine-speed ZF auto ‘box has also been retuned for quicker responses, whether in ‘D’ or sport mode. Land Rover’s Active Driveline four-wheel drive system, which switches to front-wheel drive during steady driving over 22mph for maximum efficiency, is also included as standard.
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 our pictures is unique to this model. Inside there’s illuminated Autobiography tread plates and the Autobiography logo embassed onto the leather seats.
