Join Land Rover Austin as we celebrate the release of sensational footage of the all new Range Rover Sport SVR. In the film below, Mike Cross, Chief Engineer Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover, demonstrates the adjustability, poise and outstanding body control of the fastest and most powerful Land Rover to date.
Mike explains how the Range Rover Sport SVR’s sophisticated drivetrain and advanced four-wheel drive chassis technology deliver supreme high speed handling characteristics as he laps the Rockingham circuit in the UK.
The insanely powerful 550 horsepower SVR has been created by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations team and accelerates with its monstrous 5.0-liter supercharged V8 from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. It also has a top track speed of 162 mph.
The SVR-exclusive Estoril Blue paint is both sporty and elegant, and the new front and rear fascias demonstrate its true style and aggressive stance. The quad exhausts at the rear give it a nice added touch, and the exterior design boosts cooling and aerodynamic efficiencies. A modified interior featuring sport seats supports both driver and passenger and makes for a smooth, comfortable driving experience.
As the footage clearly shows, the Range Rover Sport SVR takes performance to the next level, displaying superb on-the-limit balance, even with its comprehensive range of electronic traction and stability aids turned off.
John Edwards, Managing Director of Land Rover Special Operations, said: “The Range Rover Sport SVR is a natural progression beyond the core vehicle’s outstanding on- and off-road capabilities and leading-edge design. It’s exhilarating performance will satisfy a particularly demanding customer set.”
