Range Rover Sport SVR
Range Rover Sport SVR the 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged Petrol 575PS engine delivers a powerful 700Nm of torque taking it from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds. Performance is underlined by the integrated air vents in the Carbon Fibre bonnet and the large intakes in the bumper to maximise airflow to key components when utilising the vehicle’s full potential.
Providing a supreme degree of support with maximum control, the new lightweight SVR Performance seats in Windsor leather are heated as standard and offer cooling as an option. With an embossed SVR logo on the headrest, these sleeker seats are available in four colour combinations and Cut Diamond perforation pattern.
SVR’s performance seats are complemented by an exclusive steering wheel design and finishers in Satin Brushed Aluminium, Grand Black or Gloss Carbon Fibre. SVR branding in key locations serves to remind occupants that they are in our fastest and most capable performance SUV ever.
SVR exterior is accentuated with a unique bonnet design in carbon fibre composite which can be specified in the vehicle’s body colour or in the striking, exposed Gloss Black Carbon Fibre. SVR’s muscular stance is complemented further by a mesh grille with SVR badging and new side fender vents in Narvik Black. The look is completed with Pixel LED headlights and distinct signature Daytime Running Lights.
The supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine under the hood is what separates Supercharged and SVR models from more run-of-the-mill Land Rover Range Rover Sports. Simply put: It’s a beast. Making 518 horsepower in “regular” Supercharged models and 575 in the tuned-up SVR trim, the supercharged V-8 that powers these models is smooth, guttural, and eye-wateringly quick. Paired exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, this setup readily and easily blasts past legal speed limits. True to its off-road heritage, the Range Rover Sport Supercharged features an all-wheel-drive system with six selectable drive modes. Auto mode will suffice most of the time, while Dynamic dials in sportier settings for the engine and transmission. If the mood strikes you to take this nearly $100,000 SUV off the beaten path, there are modes for snow, mud, sand, and rock crawling. The Sport Supercharged grips the road tightly when cornering. The steering in our test car was well weighted (perhaps a little too heavy for soccer-drop-off duty, but perfect for back roads) and accurate. The Sport’s tall body leans perceptibly in tight corners and sweeping curves—as you might expect in a top-heavy SUV—but it never loses its composure. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged’s maximum towing capacity is a stout 7716 pounds.
