Land Rover revealed the Range Rover SV 2023 late last year, just before the holidays. The automaker is showing off a stunning and luxurious SUV, but the company is ready to make it even more exclusive with the Carmel Edition. Created by SV Bespoke, this limited-run SUV features exclusive design touches inside and out.
Land Rover designed the SUV solely for the North American market. It plans to produce only 17, and offers them to select clients to start with. The SUV receives an exclusive Satin Bronze exterior color, with SV exclusive 23-inch Diamond Turned wheels in Sark Gray Gloss finish with Satin Bronze inserts.
Inside, the cabin features the SV Signature Suite and the four-seater configuration of the Range Rover with a long wheelbase. It has duo-tone Liberty Blue Near-Aniline leather front seats and contrasting Caraway rear seats. Unique touches include SV Bespoke branded tread plates, Carmel Edition embroidery, and more. The interior also features Gloss White ceramic controls and Satin White ceramic upholstery. Rear seat passengers will be able to enjoy an electronically powered Club table, electronically mountable cupholders and a fridge with SV-engraved Dartington Crystal glasses.
While the SUV receives visual upgrades over the standard SV, the powertrain remains unchanged. The twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 model hides under the hood, producing 523 horsepower (384 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (749 Newton-meters) of torque.
The $345,000 price tag doesn’t include the $1,475 destination fee, but there’s no need to worry about that. Land Rover is offering limited models exclusively to guests at the Range Rover House first, the automaker’s home base for Monterey Car Week in California. With Land Rover only producing 17, we wouldn’t hold our breath hoping for the chance to buy one.
Two custom matched clubs at the Titleist Performance Institute are included with the car. Carmel Edition owners will also receive two complete club sets. Land Rover will donate a portion of the proceeds from each vehicle to the Monterey Bay National Marine Reserve. Land Rover did not say when the 2023 Land Rover Range Rover SV Carmel Edition would start reaching customers.
