Range Rover has revealed its new performance flagship, the 2024 Sport SV; a limited edition, invite only model (for its first year of production). To be offered in a single Edition One spec, it has been confirmed for the local market, alongside the rest of the range.
With deliveries expected to start in Q4 of this year, the most powerful vehicle the car maker has ever built features a 467kW/750Nm 4.4-litre mild-hybrid twin turbo V8. In a shift away from supercharging, the new engine brings more power and torque with it.
It’s capable of a top speed of 290km/h and can sprint to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds, when using a new dynamics-optimised SV driving mode. Combining sporting luxury with innovative performance technologies, the new model also features two world firsts.
Those come in the form of hydraulic interlined 6D Dynamics air suspension, with pitch and roll control, and a 23-inch carbon fibre wheel option. In a first for the brand, lightweight and powerful Brembo carbon ceramic brakes are available.
These will be paired with exclusive eight-piston SV callipers for outstanding braking performance. On the outside, an airflow-honed exterior includes a re-profiled front-end and lower body sides, carbon fibre bonnet and quad tailpipe finishers.
An exclusive performance-focused SV interior includes a new body and soul seat that introduces the latest in-car sensory audio technology, enabling Range Rover owners to feel the sound and experience wellness benefits.
The SV performance halo, which replaces the previous SVR model, leads updates across the Range Rover Sport family, including a new 338kW P460e plug-in electric hybrid and the latest Pivi Pro4 infotainment system. The entire range is available to order now.
Pricing starts from from $143,600 plus on-road costs for the SE D250. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
