International Boxing Federation Heavyweight World Champion, Anthony Joshua MBE, is a Land Rover fan. Earlier this year he visited Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in Warwickshire, UK, to customize his own bespoke version of the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic.
Joshua worked with Land Rover technical specialists and designers to select specific features for both the interior and exterior. One of the most unique features of Joshua’s Range Rover is its unique premium paint finish in ‘World Champion Graphite.’ SVO dedicated the premium paint finish to Joshua.
Joshua’s Range Rover SVAutobiography was delivered the week before boxing’s ‘Super Title’ at Wembley Stadium against WBA World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko. Joshua defeated Klitschko to retain his IBF world heavyweight title and won the vacant IBO and WBA belts.
“I spend a lot of time on the road traveling to Sheffield during my training camps, so I am incredibly grateful to Land Rover and the SVO team for their assistance,” Joshua said. “The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is the pinnacle of luxury and performance and it has been a pleasure to partner with the SBO team to create a version unique to my tastes. I had a fantastic experience in specifying this Range Rover, and the level of design detail in the finished vehicle is stunning, from the boxing glove emblems in the door handles to the custom storage unit for my training equipment.”
“It was a pleasure to welcome Anthony Joshua to the SVO Technical Center and we are pleased to name him among our clients,” David Fairbairn, Head of Special Projects, Jaguar Land Rover SVO, said. “He is extremely popular among our employees and we wish him well. The performance and features of the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic espouse the attributes of an elite athlete like Anthony Joshua: a distinctive style, powerful at heart and a jaw-dropping combination of performance and capability.”
