Range Rover Sport - SVR Carbon Edition - The Fastest Land Rover Ever Produced
“The Range Rover Sport is a unique statement of performance with an assertive and powerful design,” said Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Land Rover Chief Creative Officer. “Its refined appearance speaks to the modernity of the Range Rover family, while a series of unique aesthetic touches mark out its sporting nature. This is an SUV that demands your attention.”
For the 2021 model year, a duo of high specification special edition models distinguishes the Range Rover Sport – the HSE Silver Edition and SVR Carbon Edition. Customers benefit from even greater choice with this combination of desirable new exterior and interior finishes.
The SVR Carbon Edition joins the latest Range Rover Sport lineup for 2021, providing a more aggressive take on the high performance flagship with extensive carbon fiber detailing.
Visible carbon fiber elements include the exposed center section of the Carbon Fiber hood with integrated cooling vents, the front bumper insert surrounds, main grille and fender vent surrounds, mirror covers and tailgate finisher. There are extended carbon trim finishers on the SVR-branded steering wheel and a carbon fiber engine cover.Distinctive 22-inch five split-spoke lightweight alloy wheels finished in Gloss Black complete the Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition specification.The Range Rover Sport SVR is the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever produced. Designed, engineered and developed by Special Vehicle Operations, the luxury performance SUV is hand-finished in Coventry, UK.
Under the hood, the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 gasoline engine – the most powerful in Land Rover brand history – produces 575hp and generates 516 lb ft of torque. That’s enough to power the Range Rover Sport SVR from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds)4 and to an electronically-limited top speed of 176mph (283km/h)4.
Coupled with bespoke enhancements to the chassis, the SVR delivers more dynamic handling without compromising traditional Range Rover comfort or all-terrain capability. The engineers at Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations focused on controlling pitch under heavy acceleration and braking, and the damping hardware is tuned to help optimize turn-in, mid-corner grip and body control3.
The reprofiled front bumper design lends the SVR an assertive appearance, with vents designed to improve brake cooling. The performance brake pads and discs provide enhanced performance at higher temperatures, ensuring the braking system is more resistant to fade during dynamic driving3.
Body-colored detailing at the rear and an SVR badge in place of the Land Rover oval also help to identify the Range Rover Sport SVR.Inside, supportive lightweight SVR Performance seats create an athletic silhouette and provide comfort on long journeys. They also deliver a 66 lb (30kg) weight saving over the standard Range Rover Sport seat designs and are heated front and rear as standard.Finished in luxurious perforated Windsor leather, the SVR Performance seats reflect the vehicle’s status as the ultimate high performance Land Rover luxury SUV.
Seat backs finished in satin black with an embossed SVR logo on the headrests also deliver heightened exclusivity. The supportive seats also create more rear legroom and the impression of a cosseting four-seat interior, while retaining flexible five-seat capability.
Continuing the high performance theme, sound quality comes from a 19-speaker Meridian™ Surround Sound System, which combines 825 watts, a dual-channel subwoofer and Trifield™ technology for a thrilling personal sound experience in every seat.
