This year's Range Rover will be replaced by a new model, but Land Rover has indeed announced a special edition for the current model: the new Range Rover SV Golden Edition, which will be produced in a limited run of 5 units. This special edition will only be available in Japan.
Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) developed the "Golden Edition" from the Autobiography trim. As the name suggests, it's loaded with high-performance, luxury amenities, as well as a few standout aesthetic elements. The strange thing about this vehicle is that it's built on the normal Range Rover, not the more luxurious long-wheelbase one.
Immediately upon first glance at the vehicle's appearance, you will discover the striking combination of SV Bespoke blue paint and gold-painted details on the front and rear bumper as well as the grille and side vent openings.
The interior is mostly black, with black perforated semi-aniline leather seats, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen, and another touchscreen for the climate settings, among other features. On the center console is a cooler compartment for food and drinks.
Land Rover's 5.0-liter supercharged V8 produces 557 hp (416 kW / 565 PS) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque under the hood. The present Range Rover version was introduced in 2012 and had a redesign in 2017.
The new vehicle, which is slated to arrive before the end of the year, will be a completely new design based on the MLA platform, with progressive aesthetics and electrified drivetrain choices.
On October 15, Land Rover began taking orders for the Range Rover SV Golden Edition. Only five cars will be made, each costing ¥23,218,000 ($203,182).
