PRETORIA, South Africa – Land Rover SA has created a limited run of only 24 Range Rover Sport units packing what the automaker believes is ”serious visual punch”. For the very rich…

The special five-litre V8 Supercharged HSE Dynamics incorporate a Black Pack featuring a black bonnet and tailgate lettering, grille mesh and inner grille surround, and finishing blades on the fenders and bonnet vents.

The package also includes 22” black alloy wheel rims.

The Range Rover’s roof is also contrast black, and black accents can be found in the cabin where the headliner is wrapped in ebony trim and seats are upholstered in black leather, those up front with cooling/toasting vents. Rear passengers can skip the countryside viewing and fixate on two 20cm display screens.

The Landy special will also have a bunch of driving assistance goodies: Drive Pro Pack with blind-spot coverage, cruise control, emergency braking and lane-following. A 360degree camera will make things easier for parking initiates.

Power comes from a V8 Supercharged engine capable of 386kW/625Nm through an eight-speed autobo. Acceleration from 0-100km/h happens in 5.3sec, top speed is limited to 250km/h.

Oh yeah – not that hoped-for customers will mind  the limited edition is priced from R1 992 500.
