A distinctive Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition has been confirmed for the South African market and it will go on sale towards the end of 2020.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is the pinnacle offering in Land Rover’s line-up and it’s the fastest and most powerful model in its stable.
A special edition Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition is on the way to South Africa and it will feature a host of carbon fibre elements that give it a stealthy appearance. These carbon elements can be seen on the bonnet, front bumper insert surrounds, grille, vent surrounds, mirror housings and on the tailgate.
The Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition rides on five-split-spoke 22-inch lightweight alloy wheels in gloss black and illuminated SVR Carbon Edition treadplates further distinguish the model. At the rear, the Land Rover badge is replaced with an SVR badge.
On the inside, you are met with lightweight SVR performance seats wrapped in Windsor leather with the seat backs finished in satin black with an SVR logo embossed on the headrests. The seats are some 30 kg lighter than the seats offered in the Range Rover Sport. An 825W 19-speaker Meridian Surround Sound System is also fitted along with a subwoofer and Trifield technology for premium sound delivery.
Driving performance comes courtesy of a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine that develops 423 kW and 700 Nm of torque. Zero to 100 kph is claimed at 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 283 kph.
Pricing for the Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition will be announced closer to its launch in the fourth quarter of 2020. We will keep you updated.
