    The Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate could be among the final versions of the current-gen model.

    Land Rover has introduced a new ‘Ultimate Edition’ of the top-rung Range Rover Sport SVR, which is the fastest and most powerful Range Rover model on sale. The new arrival sets itself apart from the standard SUV, with a raft of personalisation options developed by the firm's Special Vehicle Operations division.

    • Bespoke cosmetic upgrades by JLR’s SVO division
    • 542hp, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine
    • Likely to be among final versions of current-gen Range Rover

    Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate Edition: what’s new?

    The Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate features a number of new styling details, including new lettering on the bonnet and boot, new carbon fibre bonnet vents, 22-inch alloy wheels and red brake calipers.

    Buyers can choose from a range of exclusive colour combinations developed by the SV Bespoke team, including three new paint options that feature solid glass flakes mixed in. All models gain a black contrasting roof, mirror caps, front grille and other details.

    There will also be a range of further personalisation options available to make it even more exclusive. The Ultimate Edition is now available for configuration on the brand's website, although Land Rover has not announced a production cap for the special edition model.

    Range Rover Sport SVR Ultimate Edition: what’s under the hood?

    The new special edition retains the Range Rover Sport SVR’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. This engine produces 542hp and 700Nm of peak torque and comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The SUV can crack the 0-100kph sprint in just 4.5sec and reach a top speed of 280kph.

    This is expected to be among the final additions to the current Range Rover line-up before the arrival of the next-generation model in the coming months.

    Next-gen Range Rover Sport: what to expect?

    Recently, the next-gen Range Rover Sport was spied testing abroad for the first time. While large brakes, a quad-exit exhaust and a prominent rear spoiler continue to mark it out from the standard car, a subtle styling overhaul will obviously differentiate it further.

    Today's JLR-developed 5.0-litre V8 is expected to bow out to make way for a BMW-derived 4.4-litre twin-turbo unit. It paves the way for the top-rung Range Rover to match the 624.5hp and 748.4Nm outputs of the X5 M Competition, which uses this engine.
