Hot Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic coming to Geneva

Land Rover will unveil its hottest Evoque model yet, the 281bhp Autobiography Dynamic, at next month’s Geneva motor show. The model is powered by a tuned version of the current Evoque’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine.

A re-calibrated version of the ZF nine-speed automatic transmission is used, responding more quickly to driver inputs. Land Rover’s Active Driveline, normally an optional extra, is standard on the Autobiography Dynamic. The system allows the car to run in front-wheel drive mode for economy, but engages the rear driveline seamlessly as and when it’s needed.

Dynamically, the Evoque has received firmer springs, stiffer active dampers and re-tuned geometry, which is said to improve turn-in and agility. This has apparently been achieved without damaging the standard car’s ride quality. The model uses a fully active version of the Evoque’s ‘Torque Vectoring by Braking’ system.     

To help slow the 1640kg SUV down, Land Rover has fitted uprated 350mm front brakes. When it goes on sale towards the end of the year, the Autobiography Dynamic will be available in three and five-door body styles. The Geneva show car gets 20-inch forged alloy wheels and Phoenix Orange paint.
