Land Rover’s first SUV to wear the high-performance SVR badge, the Range Rover Sport SVR made its global debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California. The Range Rover Sport SVR is the most dynamically focused vehicle Land Rover has ever produced.
This high performance model gets features such as new front bumper with larger air intakes that pass air to the two intercoolers. The model also receives a revised grille, distinctive front fender vents, muscular side skirts and 21-inch alloy wheels with Continental Cross Contact all-season tires. At the rear, the Range Rover Sport SVR gets a larger rear spoiler and a new rear bumper with a gloss black diffuser that is flanked by a four-tailpipe exhaust system.
The 2015 Range Rover SVR is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that puts out 550 bhp of power and 680 Nm of torque – which is 40 bhp and 55 Nm more than the Range Rover Sport Supercharged. The power is transferred to the wheels via a sport-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system which enables the SVR model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The top speed is electronically locked to 162 mph (260.7 km/h).
The Range Rover Sport SVR goes on sale in October and first deliveries will be from early 2015.
