Carbon Range Rover coming to stay for Christmas

PRETORIA, South Africa – The high-performance Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition is set for launch in South Africa toward the end of 2020.

Visible carbon-fibre elements will include the exposed centre section of the bonnet/cooling vents, front-bumper inserts, radiator grille,m and other vent borders, external mirror covers, and tail hatch.

The steering-wheel and engine cover will also have the special treatment; tread plates will also be illuminated.


Most obvious will be the 22” black alloy, five split-spoked, wheel rims and SVR Carbon Edition specification as well as rear body-coloured detailing and an SVR badge where the oval Land Rover badge usually lives.

The Range Rover Sport SVR claims to be the fastest, most powerful and dynamic Land Rover yet produced. It was designed, engineered, and developed by Special Vehicle Operations in Coventry, central England.

Under the bonnet is a five-litre supercharged V8 – the most powerful in Land Rover history – capable of 423kW/700Nm, 0-100km/h in 4.5sec, and more than 280km/h. Its dynamic handling will not affect the vehicle’s off-road capability.


Performance brake-pads and discs can handle higher temperatures.

Light but supportive, leather-upholstered, heatable, SVR Performance seats are said to have ”an athletic silhouette and exceptional comfort” and heating. Aluminium sport pedals also feature.

On-the-road sound can be pumped out from a 19-speaker Meridian sound system.

The Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition is scheduled for South African launch in the fourth quarter of 2020. Prices then…
