Carbon fibre is a light-weight material often used in car manufacturing replacing traditional materials to help contribute to the overall weight of the finished vehicle. Usually used in high performance automobiles with the objective of reducing load and increasing speed.
Range Rover has introduced this product into its Sport range launching the SVR Carbon Edition which is the flagship model of the Range Rover line up. You will immediately identify this variant on the road by the carbon fibre centre section of the bonnet also featuring functional integrated cooling vents. Carbon trim has been applied to the reprofiled front bumpers on the surrounds of the vents, main grille, lower grille surrounds, side mirror covers, rear tailgate and engine cover.
To complete the exterior finish lightweight 22-inch alloy wheels in gloss black together with body-coloured detailing at the rear and an SVR badge in place of the Land Rover oval all contribute to the Carbon Edition’s exterior package. Inside, SVR Carbon Edition-branded tread plates illuminate as doors open, and the lightweight SVR Performance seats deliver a significant 30 kg weight saving over the standard Range Rover Sport seat designs. Finished in high-quality perforated Windsor leather, the seats are heated in the front and the rear as standard and feature embossed SVR logos in the headrests.
Under the featured carbon fibre bonnet is the most powerful and dynamic engine in Land Rover’s history, a 5.0 – litre supercharged V8 producing 423kW and 700Nm. The result is acceleration from 0 to 100km/hr in 4.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 283km/hr. The SVR is the fastest most powerful Land Rover ever produced, designed, engineered, developed, and hand finished in Coventry England, UK.
