Range Rover Sport and SV Autobiography models finished in bespoke hues

The 24 Range Rover Sports and three Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamics were put through final paint processes at Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) department in Warwickshire, England.

The eight specially-formulated colours bear locally-inspired names says the carmaker.

Each model features SVO Bespoke logos 

The special collection includes 20 Range Rover Sport SVRs finished in Stimela sa Sebusuku, single Range Rover Sport SVRs in izi Khaleni Plum, 1000 Hills Green, Namaqua Orange, and Egoli Yellow, and single Range Rover SVAD units in Bantry Blue, Sibudu Stoneand Sudwala Eve. 

It's not only the colour that sets these models apart, each of the Range Rovers also receive custom door sill plates etched with the words 'Built by Special Vehicle Operations' and circular B-pillar badges etched with 'SVO Bespoke' logos.

All 27 customers destined to own these vehicles will receive certificates of authenticity, each embossed with SVO logos matching respective special paint finishes and naming the South Africa-inspired colours.

The colours are:

Sibudu Stone

Inspired by the ancient cliffs of the Sibudu Cave in Kwa Zulu Natal, Sibudu Stone is a rich, pearlescent grey-blue shade that dances dramatically off the Range Rover's elegant silhouette.

Sudwala Eve 

Inspired by the oldest caves' darkest chambers globally, this exclusive Sudwala Eve finish exudes an enigmatic aura as moving as the historical South African landmark itself. Like the 2.8-billion-year-old dolomite rocks which comprise the Sudwala cave system. 

Bantry Blue

Inspired by the calm, azure Atlantic waters and cerulean sky of Bantry Bay in the Western Cape, Bantry Blue is a profoundly intense colour evocative of summer escapes that will delight occupants onlookers equally.

Izi Khaleni Plum

Inspired by the deep purple sunset often witnessed near an impressive rock formation in Coffee Bay, izi Khaleni Plum is a lively colour for an energetic SUV. In Xhosa, izi Khaleni means 'Place of thunder' – a fitting title for the most powerful Land Rover in history.
