Land Rover has just unveiled the new Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate Edition in Australia, a limited-run model with some unique options and a starting price of AU$295,470 (US$216,000) plus on-road costs.
The SUV has been brought to life thanks to Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicles Operations (SVO) division and is offered in three colors, two of which are exclusive to the Ultimate edition. The two new colors are dubbed Gloss Maya Blue and Gloss Mark Grey and include highly reflective fine white glass flake particles to give the paint a unique flair. A third color dubbed Satin Liguarian Black is also available. All three paint options features a Gloss Narvik Black roof.
Various other changes have been made. For example, there is black knurled Range Rover letting on the hood and tailgate as well as unique Fuji White edging for the side fenders. Land Rover has also equipped the Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate with a body-colored vented carbon fiber hood, 22-inch five split-spoke forged alloy wheels and black brake calipers.
Found in the cabin are illuminated Ultimate Edition treadplates, black anodized metal gearshift paddles, and chrome SV B-pillar badges. There are also SVR-embossed lightweight performance seats finished in Windsor leather with contrasting suedecloth.
Power is provided by the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 as other Range Rover Sport SVR models that churns out 567 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.
“Range Rover Sport SVR redefined Land Rover high-performance capability when it was introduced in 2014,” commercial director for Land Rover SV Bespoke Mark Turner said. “We’ve sold more than 20,000 examples to date and demand for the SVR’s characterful mix of power, luxury and thrilling dynamics continues to grow every year. The SV Bespoke personalization features of this Ultimate edition elevate its appeal even further.”
The Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate will make its public debut at the Salon Privé in the UK.
