The hot new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic will cost over £50,000 when it launches in October

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.

Best 4x4s and SUVs

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.

Fastest SUVs

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.

Look out for the car at the Geneva Motor Show. Sales begin in October with prices starting from over £50,000.

Waiting for our racist friend to come in with his untrue Jaaaaaag comments

Picked up our 49k sd4 at Xmas. It has done 1500 miles now and has developed many interior rattles plus the tailgate has dropped out of alignment and is rubbing the paint. We are not impressed with Landrover and wish we had waited for the Macan. This new model will be lovely but I'm sure will be plagued with similar issues all Evoque owners have. Quality control at JLR is rubbish.

Yep, I believe ya!
But then I'm extremely gullible.

Interesting change of tactics but none of us will be fooled.

This is my first post. Not sure what your on about

Yes, this is definitely Jaaaaag boy trying a new ruse.

Bad new Jaaaaag boy:
JD Power 2013:
1st Place Jaguar.

LandRover/RR jumped from 12th to 6th. Porsche nowhere.

Even if your fictional 49K SD4 story was true (they price about £36K anyway) which it clearly isn't then it would only be a one off anecdote and worthless.

JLR legal have been tipped off about your continued slander.

You failed again. Try harder

I think you childish boys need to get your facts right. Base price is 41.5k. Placed my order in June and collected from Tonbridge Harwoods on 23rd Dec.

Would welcome a call from JLR at any time nothing I have said is untrue.

Wow... that sounds bad. Have you considered an Audi R8?
