I only went and bl**dy did it!!!

Had my first Range Rover, a 2005 4.2L supercharged for just over 5 years and I've loved every minute of driving it so I decided my next car would also be a RR.
I've always wanted an SVR since they came out but they were always out of my reach.
But today, I'm buzzing to say I finally fulfilled a dream!
It's a 2016, Estoril Blue SVR with sliding panoramic roof, deployable side steps, 22" Velare wheels, upgraded rear lights and exposed full carbon bonnet.
I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I love CF !! Very Happy
I've watched hours and hours of YouTube vids and the recurring theme was it makes you grin like an inane Cheshire Cat and I can now confirm this!!

If we all point our RR's in the same direction and accelerate at the same time can we turn back time?

Thanks Andy,

I stand corrected. According to the LR service receipts it is Tanzanite/Estoril Blue. (I've updated the post, thanks).
And yes, It feels like I'm spending more time at the petrol pump than on the road but coming from the 4.2L SC it's not too much of a shock!

It's funny because I was considering a Tesla up until recently but I got "range anxiety" with EV's. It turns out I still have Range anxiety!!!

I figured I'll wait 5 years before going fully EV and the SVR was on my bucket list before they ban them completely. 2016 RRS SVR Estoril Blue

Thanks Steve,

I'm still trying to find the perfect seat position. I think the ones in my old 2005 4.2 SC were slightly more comfortable and I couldn't work out why the SVR seats felt like they were digging in the small of my neck (headrests aren't adjustable) and thought it might be because I'm over 6 feet tall. But then I figured out I was wearing a hoody!!! Put my hoody up and the seats were fine! 2016 RRS SVR Estoril Blue

Wow! I though mine was unsubtle until I saw yours! I'm going to get the sides wrapped in Estoril Blue to tone it down a bit. 2016 RRS SVR Estoril Blue
