The Range Rover is a pretty big car, and you can imagine it is also a very heavy car at that, but if you fancy a SUV that is very quick and a little lighter than usual then this Range Rover SVR is for you.

Deemed the Range Rover SVR Carbon Edition, this big boy is serious about going fast. With a Carbon Fibre bonnet giving it a distinct look from the normal SVR, the front bumper has been reprofiled to improve brake cooling, and carbon trim has been applied to the surrounds of the bumper vents, main grille, lower grille surrounds, side mirror covers, rear tailgate finisher and engine cover.

The wheels are lightweight 22-inch alloy wheels finished in Gloss Black and on the inside, lightweight SVR Performance seats deliver a significant 30kg weight saving over the standard Range Rover Sport seat designs. Finished in high-quality perforated Windsor leather, the seats are heated in the front and rear as standard.

The real party piece is the engine, in fact,
It is the most powerful engine in Land Rover’s history – a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 producing 423kW and 700Nm. That’s enough to power the Range Rover Sport SVR from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and to a top speed of 283km/h.

The price? Well if you have R 2 831 000 laying around somewhere then you most definitely can have one and it is already available on sale at your nearest Land Rover dealer.
