Land Rover South Africa has worked hand in hand with its counterparts at Special Vehicle Operations to build a spectacular kind of a Range Rover Sport SVR, paying tribute to the Springbok rugby team.
The Range Rover Sport is given the unique colour of South Africa’s Springbok rugby team ‘very specific green hue. The exact pantone colour match was applied to the vehicle’s bare shell at the very start of its build process at SVO’s dedicated paint facility. Unique Springbok logos and bespoke yellow brake calipers complete the exterior visual enhancements.
The circular plaques on the flagships B-pillars and front and rear treadplates also feature Springbok insignias and script. In completing the Springbok look, the vehicle was given yellow shift paddles and contrast yellow stitching on the seats and door panels. Its interior mood lighting has also been adapted to radiate a green glow.
South African consumers may contact any Jaguar Land Rover dealer for potential bespoke commissions to be fulfilled by SVO in the United Kingdom.
The Range Rover Sport Springbok tribute SVR will make its public appearance at the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb on 4 and 5 May
