MOTORING NEWS - If you have about R3-million to spare, you may be tempted to splash out on the new Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition available now.
The SVR Carbon Edition's exterior is set apart with visible carbon fibre in an exposed centre section of the bonnet, also featuring functional integrated cooling vents. 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.
Lightweight 22-inch alloy wheels finished in Gloss Black, together with body-coloured detailing at the rear and an SVR badge in place of the Land Rover oval complete the SVR Carbon Edition's exterior package.
Under the specially finished bonnet is the most powerful engine in Land Rover's history - a 5-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.
Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition pricing is set at R2 831 000.
