Editor-in-Chief's Note: As I said, I chose not to devote this week's column to the Super Bowl commercials. There were a few good tries and some "almost" spots, but nothing was worth writing about. The Bud Light work was atrocious, the Kia Telluride spot was very good for 45 sec. (too bad it was 90 sec.), etc., etc., etc. The only spot I found to be meaningful every time I watched it was the spot for The Washington Post. You can watch it . -PMD

This is the new Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. We can assure you that it costs a lot of money, although Land Rover hasn't released the price as of yet (never a good sign). 
The short story? It's the most powerful Velar ever with its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 delivering 550HP and 502lb.ft. of torque, which makes it the fastest and quickest Velar ever. 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 170 mph. There's a unique high-performance SV calibration for the eight-speed Quickshift transmission, steering, suspension and electronic driver aids. Standard lightweight 21-inch forged wheels surround upgraded, high-performance, 15.6 in. (396mm) SV brakes for increased stopping power. Optional 22-inch wheels with a diamond-turned finish design are availableExterior enhancements abound for optimized aerodynamic and cooling performance. Inside, quilted, perforated and twin-stitched leather upholstery, a new sports steering wheel and knurled aluminum infotainment controllers can be foundThe new Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition is available in six exterior colors: Firenze Red, Santorini Black, Eiger Grey, Fuji White, Indus Silver and, by special order, Satin Byron Blue. 

Lamborghini Polo Storico will be at Rétromobile, the Paris show devoted to classic cars, February 6-10, with a special Rosso Corsa 1972 Miura SV. This machine underwent a complete restoration by Polo Storico and is owned by Jean Todt, President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile. The restoration of Miura chassis number No. 3673 took thirteen months and involved the complete dismantling of the car, which made it possible to verify each and every detail from the markings of the frame, body, and interiors, to the numbering and dating present on the other components. Polo Storico also verified the conformity with the notes present in the assembly books stored in the Lamborghini archives.
