Built by the Indian-owned British automaker’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in co-operation with the South African Rugby Union (SARU), the official sponsor of the ‘Boks’ latest one-off creation comes decked-out in the distinctive green paint finish as the national side’s jerseys, with this so-called Pantone match rounded off with yellow springbok decals at the base of the front doors, yellow brake callipers and a Springbok decal down the rear.
Inside, the B-pillar plaques as well as the front and rear treadplates have been inscribed with the Springbok logo and script, while the mood lighting comes with a green hue and the shift paddles for the eight-speed automatic gearbox finished in gold. Contrasting yellow stitching on the seats and doors panels rounds the changes off.
Motivation remains unchanged however with the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 once again producing 423 kW and 700 N.m of torque, thus allowing the SVR to get from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 280 km/h.
The special edition SVR is set to make its public unveiling at the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb due to take place in Knysna on 4-5 May.
