Land Rover - Range Rover Sport SVR Price: from £95,150
Last Updated On: 24/07/2017
The new Range Rover Sport SVR is the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever produced. It is the first model to wear the SVR designation being adopted by future Land Rover and Jaguar high-performance models, on vehicles coming out of JLR's Special Vehicle Operations division.
The Range Rover Sport SVR accelerates from 0-60mph in just 4.5 seconds. A top speed electronically limited to 162mph and a Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time of 8 minutes 14 seconds - one of the fastest times ever recorded by a production SUV - underline its performance credentials.
In a world first for Land Rover, the Range Rover Sport SVR is equipped with a two-stage active exhaust featuring electronically controlled valves. The system optimises sound quality, performance and aesthetics and provides a racecar-inspired soundtrack at higher engine revs without adversely affecting refinement during steady-state driving.
Meanwhile, in another first for Range Rover, unique 22-inch* alloy wheels with performance-optimised 295/40 R22 Continental SportContact 5 tyres* complement the driver-focused chassis. As standard, new 21-inch alloy wheels with 275/45 R21 all-season tyres offer unparalleled all-terrain capability.
Exterior design enhancements ensure the SVR makes a striking visual impact, while simultaneously boosting cooling and aerodynamic efficiencies. A bespoke interior featuring unique sports seats provides further visual differentiation and ensures occupants are held securely in place.
The Range Rover Sport SVR builds on the success of the new Range Rover Sport, with its all-aluminium monocoque - a world first in the segment - which reduces weight by 39% compared with its predecessor and provides the ideal strong, stiff and lightweight structure on which to create the Range Rover Sport SVR. The premium sports SUV unleashes the full potential of the lightweight and robust all-aluminium architecture, while retaining the refinement, luxury and off-road capability for which Range Rover is world renowned.
SVR is fitted with 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. The upgraded air suspension system automatically varies between two ride heights, and the next generation ground-breaking Terrain Response® 2 system automatically selects the most suitable terrain programme.
Range Rover Sport SVRs will be built alongside their mainstream sibling models in Land Rover's existing production facilities and sold through Land Rover's dealer network.
