Special Vehicle Operations Delivers a Knockout of a Range Rover to Boxer Anthony Joshua

By -

The International Boxing Federation Heavyweight World Champion recently got the keys to a personalized Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic.

Anthony Joshua is on roll right now. And in a new Range Rover.

He’s a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE). In late April, he defeated World Boxing Association World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko in a bout to claim boxing’s “Super Title.” Shortly before that, he took delivery of his very own Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic from Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations.

You can see him do that in the video above. As special as the SVAutobiography Dynamic is, Joshua’s is even more special. His is the very first one fitted with the SVO Design Pack. First one as in ever. In the world. According to Land Rover, that suite of features includes “a number of highly desirable and distinctive exterior enhancements to the standard vehicle. It provides more options for customers to personalize their vehicle and includes a number of distinct exterior changes, including unique front and rear bumpers – the latter incorporating integrated quad tailpipes – new side vents, side sills and a unique grille.”

Joshua took full advantage of SVO’s personalization program. He had his regal rig trimmed with accents such as ebony and pimento red quilted seats that feature his signature on the driver’s headrest and a special rear compartment for storing his training equipment. His signature appears again on a chrome badge on one of the B-pillars and the door panels. SVO coated the exterior in a unique color it calls World Champion Graphite. We call it fitting. We’re sure Joshua would, too.

The supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine is stock, but with 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, it packs plenty of punch already, just like the heavy hitter who now gets to enjoy its exhaust note and acceleration.
