Land Rover fills those wheels with 15-inch Brembo six-piston brakes. This is one of the most functional performance upgrades.

Perhaps my favorite SVR upgrade is the fitting of a ridiculously loud Switchable Active Exhaust system.

A lower chin spoiler costs the SVR a fraction of a degree of approach and departure angle. Other than that, the SUV retains all of its off-road chops.

I find the two-tone seats to be a bit of an eyesore. I like my $111,000 SUVs to be less boy-racer.
