Earlier in April 2019, Wheels24 reported on a new new Springbok-themed Range Rover SVR. In May, SA rugby legend, Bryan Habana, received the luxury green SUV.

Created a in three-way partnership with SVO, Land Rover South Africa and the South African Rugby Union (SARU), the unique Range Rover Sport is the first and only vehicle to be completely finished in the Springboks’ very specific green hue.

The exact Pantone colour match was applied to the Range Rover’s bare shell at the very start of its build process at SVO’s dedicated paint facility. Custom Springbok logos and bespoke yellow brake calipers finish off the exterior’s visual enhancements.

Tina Pienaar-Smit, Jaguar Land Rover PR and Sponsorship Specialist, said: "Land Rover and rugby go hand-in-hand so it only made sense to demonstrate the allegiance in automotive form. We have a great resource in SVO, and its capabilities are ideal to make the connection between the Land Rover and Springbok brands a tangible reality. We hope each member of the Springbok team appreciates the final product as much as we do."

CEO of SA Rugby, Jurie Roux says, "We entered the process of designing this vehicle with Land Rover some months ago, and SARU is delighted to have played a part in the result." 

"This project is the first of its kind for the Springboks and I’m sure there will be many excited conversations among the players who will get the opportunity to drive it." he concludes.

South African customers can participate in the development of their own personalised vehicles.
