Range_Rover_SVR_Carbon_Edition_front_2The new Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition is the high-performance flagship of the range. Designed, engineered and developed by Special Vehicle Operations, the luxury performance SUV is hand-finished in Coventry, UK.

The 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine produces 423kW (575PS) and generates 700Nm of torque. It can power the SVR from zero to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds and to a top speed of 283km/h.


Coupled with bespoke enhancements to the chassis, the SVR delivers more dynamic handling. The engineers focused on controlling pitch under heavy acceleration and braking, and the damping hardware is tuned to provide exceptional turn-in, mid-corner grip and body control.

The re profiled front bumper design has vents to improve brake cooling and the performance brake pads and discs provide enhanced performance at higher temperatures

Body-coloured detailing at the rear and an SVR badge in place of the Land Rover oval also help to identify the SVR.


Visible Carbon Fibre elements include the exposed centre section of the Carbon Fibre bonnet with integrated cooling vents, the front bumper insert surrounds, main grille and vent surrounds, mirror covers and tailgate finisher.
