Before the end of 2020, Land Rover will bring its Range Rover Sport SVR Carbon Edition to South Africa. The SUV, still powered by the company's supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, will run onto a 283km/h top speed and clear the 0-100km/h time in 4.5 seconds.

The engine produces 423kW and 700Nm.

The Carbon Edition features visible carbon fibre elements on the bonnet and cooling vents, front bumper, grille, mirror covers, and tailgate. 22-inch five split-spoke alloy wheels are finished in Gloss Black to round off the package.

Badging and finishes all around the SUV make it clear that this is the SVR you're dealing with.

Land Rover says that the interior has exclusive SVR Carbon Edition-branded treadplates that illuminate as you enter the vehicle. The lightweight SVR Performance seats are standard and are 30kg lighter than the ones found in the standard Range Rover Sport. Both front and rear seats are heated.

Audio comes courtesy from a 19-speaker Meridian Surround Sound System, which combines 825-watt with a dual-channel subwoofer and Trifeld technology for a better audio experience.
