The tuner Manhart gets hold of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport P530 and turns it into the SV 650. The result is an SUV that makes 644 bhp and 664 pound-feet of torque.
The Range Rover Sport P530 uses a BMW-sourced twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 with a stock output of 523 bhp and 553 pound-feet. Manhart takes this engine and adds its MHtronik powerbox. The company can also fit an exhaust with remote-controlled valves, but this piece doesn't have a TÜV certificate, so the tuner can't sell it in Germany.

The tuner doesn't quote acceleration specs, but the stock powertrain can get the SUV to 60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds when using the Dynamic Launch system.
Manhart also drops the Range Rover Sport's ride height by 30 millimetres (1.2 inches). A set of 24-inch diameter wheels fill out the wings/fenders, and they're 10 inches wide.
The tuner doesn't modify any of the body components but adds gold accents to the exterior. There are stripes on the bonnet, sides, and tail. Underneath the bonnet, the engine cover receives similar touches.
Thanks to the Manhart decor set, numerous gold-coloured lettering and trim strips extend over its black paintwork.
The latest generation Range Rover Sport debuted for the 2023 model year. It rides on Land Rover's MLA-Flex platform, which is also underneath the current Range Rover. In addition to the twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8, there are also two flavours of mild-hybrid, turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engines making 355 bhp for the P360 SE or 395 bhp for the P400 SE Dynamic. The P440e has a plug-in-hybrid-assisted turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six that makes 434 bhp and an estimated 48-mile electric-only range.
The latest Range Rover Sport has a 13.7-inch driver display and a 13.1-inch infotainment screen. A stereo with up to 29 speakers is available. Over-the-air updates allow for sending new code 63 electronic modules.
On 31 May, Land Rover will introduce the Range Rover Sport SV. It will allegedly be available only by invitation, at least initially.
