The British automaker has barely revealed in front of the worldwide audience of the Geneva Motor Show the new Velar, and the online configurator is already up and running for the US clients.
The company will offer the Velar in the US with an initial limited series of 500 examples of the First Edition – which can go up to $103,265, including $995 destination. In America, the Velar can be had with both gasoline and diesel – 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will deliver either horsepower (184 kilowatts) or 177 hp (132 kW) respectively. But of course the First Edition needs to be had with something more elegant – such as the flagship supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 380 hp (283 kW) and eight-speed automatic.
The Velar First Edition has almost everything standard – R-Dynamic pack, panoramic sunroof, Light Oyster and Ebony perforated leather with suede headliner, twenty-way power seats with heating and cooling for the front, heated seats for the back, 23-speaker stereo and numerous driver assistance technology – adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, and lane keeping assist. The standard First Edition kicks off at $90,295 and you can add a Flux Silver paint for $8,580 or 21-inch option alloys with five split spokes for $3,775. The R-Dynamic HSE is a less costly option though – kicking off at $78,095.
