Under the hood, Velar's SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition rocks Land Rover's 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged engine.

This motor, spotted on Jaguar's F-Type R and XF R sports cars, is tuned to make 543 bhp power and 680 Nm of peak torque.

It pairs up with 8-speed automatic transmission and takes the Velar from 0 to 100 in just 4.5 seconds; the top speed is 274 km/hr.

Pricing

Price in India still remains a question

The new Velar is a true beast but is yet to be unveiled in India.

Reports suggest Land Rover might launch it in the Indian market sometime later this year or in early 2020 at a price of Rs. 2 crore.

The model would come in multiple color options, including Firenze Red, Santorini Black, Corris Grey, Fuji White, Indus Silver, and Satin Byron Blue.
