Land Rover Range Rover Velar Pricing and Specs
The Velar’s unusual name is derived from the prototype versions of the original Range Rover in 1969. This time around though, Range Rover is its own luxury sub-brand, and the Velar plugs a mid-size gap between the Range Rover Sport and the Range Rover Evoque.
When released in 2017, the Velar debuted a new styling language for the Range Rover brand, as well as bringing an all-aluminium platform across from sister brand Jaguar, which the Velar shares with the Jaguar F-Pace, XF, and XE. Currently the Velar’s pricing sits between $81,647 for the Range Rover Velar P250 S (184KW) to $176,048 for the Range Rover Velar P550 SV A/B Dynamic (405KW).

Range Rover Velar FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Land Rover here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Land Rover Discovery 5 - Why do they just call it Discovery?
Land Rover still refers to the third-generation, L462-series model as the Discovery 5, but the number was dropped in some markets to distance it from the L319-series LR3 and LR4, which were the North American names for the Ford-era Discovery 3 (2003) and Discovery 4 (2009) respectively.
Though not officially confirmed, it is believed that the name change in both instances was due to the poor reliability reputation that the earlier models gained. The same fate befell the Freelander badge, when its successor became known as the much-more-chic Evoque.

Land Rover Discovery 1 - Is the first Discovery becoming a classic?
Indeed it will so get in quick.
With its mix of classic Range Rover and a Rover Group parts-bin bits, Morris Marina door handles, Austin Montego van tail-lights and Buick’s ancient alloy V8 all part of the mix, this thing is pre-BMW/post-BMC era British engineering genius.
Also, the original Disco is cool, with its lovely two-door wagon body, stepped roof with skylights and airy, inviting cabin offering minimalist, attractive design. And please don't forget the Land Rover's formidable 4x4 capabilities.
All-in-all, a '90s classic worth collecting. Land Rover doesn't make 'em like this any more.Show more
What is the most expensive Land Rover in the world?
The most expensive new Land Rover in Australia is the Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB supercharged V8 petrol which lists at $403,670 and boasts 405kW of power. A high percentage of that cost, however, is down to luxury-car tax and other import duties, and the Australian government loves to slug car lovers. That said, countries such as Singapore which have extortionate fees and taxes just for the privilege of buying a car would have higher Land Rover and Range Rover prices.
However, my money for the world’s most expensive Landie would be on the original Land Rover prototype used to develop the original off-roader way back in 1947. This protype actually featured a central driving position and had the nick-name the Centre Steer as a result. Opinions differ on whether it still exists as some say it was broken up as production started in 1948 while others surmise that it could be hidden in storage somewhere in the UK. If it does exist, it would surely be the most valuable Land Rover in the world.
Beyond that, I’d say another prototype named Huey (named for its registration number HUE 166) from 1948 would be a close runner-up in value terms. Huey now resides at Land Rover’s Classic workshop in Coventry in the UK.Show more
