The Range Rover SV Burford Edition is a homage to the Cotswolds

And only 10 will ever be made. Perhaps a Lake District version follows next?

Published: 04 Apr 2024

Does your Range Rover SV feel a bit... urban? Well good news: the brand has just released a new Burford Edition inspired by the picturesque countryside region of the Cotswolds.

You’ll need to act fast if you want one though, since only 10 will ever be built.

It’s based on the P615 V8 long-wheelbase model, so you still get a massive 606bhp and 553lb ft of torque to waft you between villages and farms.

That’s also the ideal power plant to help scatter waves of mud across the new Aether Grey satin exterior… because that’s obviously how Range Rovers are meant to look.

Most of the attention has been focused on the interior, where the two-tone grey and white theme welcomes you into a haven of woven textiles. Odd, we were expecting 50 shades of green given the Cotswolds theme...

JLR insists that the colour palette is 'inspired by England's largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and that the town of Burford is 'synonymous with luxury rural lifestyle'. So there you go.

Patrick McGillycuddy, JLR's MD, said: “The Burford Edition builds on Range Rover’s exclusivity and luxury, and captures the essence of the Cotswolds – one of the most beautiful locations in the UK and the heartland of Range Rover.”

Given the standard P615 V8 LWB will set you back around £190,000, we expect the Burford Edition to cost a few acres of Cotswold countryside more... at the very least.
