After it was introduced as a camouflaged prototype during "Goodwood Festival of Speed", the new Range Rover Sport SVR was officially unveiled.
Described as the most powerful Land Rover ever produced, the Range Rover Sport SVR is officially the fastest SUV on the famous Nurburgring circuit, with an official time of 8 minutes and 14 seconds.
This performance is the result of a modified 5.0 liters V8 engine, delivering 550 hp and 680 Nm. This is 40 hp and 55 Nm more than the standard Supercharged version of the Range Rover Sport.
With the help of a ZF 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel-drive chassis, the Range Rover Sport SVR can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
To cope with that power, the SUV uses a permanent four-wheel drive and a two-speed transfer case, with a low-range option for demanding terrain, and a 50/50 percent torque split front-to-rear. To optimize traction and stability, the Dynamic Active Rear Locking Differential has been recalibrated. Torque Vectoring is also uniquely recalibrated.
To better differentiate the SUV from its standard version, the Range Rover Sport SVR uses a new front bumper, with larger air intakes, 21-inch wheels with Continental sport tires, generous diffuser, four tailpipe exhaust system and new side skirts.
Prices start at $110,475 USD on the US market.
