The First edition packs one engine option - a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine that produces 380 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.
Land Rover officially unveiled its super-swanky Range Rover Velar model two weeks ago, and interested buyers can now go online to configure their own model. If you want to get the priciest possible Velar, you'll be shelling out over $100,000, including destination.
The Velar will be available in three trims in Canada, with the First Edition version topping the range and totalling $104,490 when fully spec'ed out, before destination fees and taxes.
Available for just the first year of the vehicle's existence, the aptly-named First Edition starts at $95,000, and comes with a slew of standard equipment. That said, there are a few options, including a "Flux Silver" paint that costs $9,030 - approximately the starting MSRP of a new Nissan Micra. A far more affordable Silicon Silver colour is available for $970. The third and last available colour choice - Corris Grey - makes black or even a white exterior seem downright extraordinary.
Buyers can choose from one of three different wheels on the Velar, all for no cost. Coming in 20-, 21-, and 22-inch sizes, they all look nice, but we can't imagine anyone would go for anything lower than 21-inches.
Beyond that, the only other option is the inclusion of Sirius XM satellite for an extra $460. Relatively speaking, Land Rover is asking pocket change to allow for commercial-free radio.
In terms of the aforementioned standard equipment, the Velar First Edition gets everything from a leather and carbon fibre interior, to a Meridian surround sound audio system, to a head-up display.
The First edition packs one engine option - a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine that produces 380 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. All V6-equipped Velars are fitted with Electronic Air Suspension, which can lower the SUV by up to 40 millimetres for easier ingress and egress. For anyone going offroad in the Velar - we're not sure if owners actually will - the higher ride height, combined with the numerous offroad goodies, will make sure this vehicle does in fact have some utility.
If you really want to show off your ownership of the new Range Rover, a matching Velar-branded Zenith watch is being available for $8,700 USD. Unsurprisingly, the watch sounds more luxurious than literally anything we currently own.
The Velar launches in Canada this summer. We'll have more news on the latest Range Rover as it's released.
