How to spec: Range Rover Sport SVR

One of the fun things about on-line car configurators is seeing just how much you can spend on a particular car.

The Range Rover Sport SVR ain’t exactly cheap to begin with, bearing a list price of £93,450. It’s probably worth it, though. The 542bhp, supercharged V8-powered beast has gone straight to the top of a previously all-German class (Porsche Cayenne Turbo S; BMW X5M; Mercedes ML63 AMG) that is completely pointless, but rather wonderful all the same.

Nobody actually needs a two-point-something ton SUV that can do 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and out-handle a sports car. Yet it seems plenty of people want one and the waiting list stretches into the great blue yonder. If you don’t want to wait, a few delivery mileage examples are starting to filter through to high-end dealers who are charging a mark-up of around £20,000.

That takes the cost up to a considerable £115,000, even without any options. Not that you need any, as the RRS SVR comes quite well specced as it stands. But it turns out the options list is lengthy, especially when you take into account the massive range of dealer-fit accessories. And if you went a bit nuts, you could end up spending an awful lot of money.
