SPEED & POWER

The first Land Rover to wear the new high-performance SVR badge, the Range Rover Sport SVR is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in a breath-taking 4.5 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 162mph (260km/h).

SPEED & POWER

At the Range Rover Sport SVR’s heart lies an evolution of the all-aluminium 5000cc supercharged V8 engine with its cast-iron cylinder liners and cross-bolted main bearing caps providing a combination of strength, performance and refinement.

SPEED & POWER

The SVR’s fuel economy and CO2 emissions are unaffected by the extra performance and remain identical to the V8 Supercharged derivative at 22.1mpg and 299g/km. This is due to the engine’s advanced and highly efficient design characteristics.

RANGE ROVER SPORT SVR AT THE NÜRGBURGRING

With 13 miles (20.8km) of challenging twists and turns, high-speed straights, daunting crests and compressions, as well as frequently treacherous weather conditions, the Nürgburgring Nordschleife is the ultimate test for any performance car.

Due to the track’s extreme nature, unique demands are placed upon a vehicle's chassis and powertrain. During testing and development, the SVR recorded a Nordschleife lap time of just 8 minutes 14 seconds, one of the fastest times ever recorded by a standard production SUV.

Fresh from its punishing test regime in Germany, the production-ready SVR made its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK, powering up the 1.16-mile course, and enthralling motorsport fans with its racecar-inspired exhaust note and stunning acceleration.

PERFORMANCE

ENGINE

The SVR’s range-topping 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine has been developed to produce 550PS while its 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel-drive chassis have been optimised to complement the astonishing performance, whatever the weather.

SUSPENSION

The Range Rover Sport SVR also features cross-linked, four-corner air suspension and Adaptive Dynamics. The air springs feature a modified piston profile to ensure even sportier handling and composure, while the Adaptive Dynamics damper settings have been optimised for an unrivalled combination of increased agility and occupant comfort.

TRANSMISSION

The transmission recognises a series of overtaking manoeuvres and maintains a lower gear to ensure instant acceleration for maximum safety and exhilaration. The adaptive shift strategy monitors acceleration and brake inputs, lateral cornering forces, kickdown requests and even the severity of gradients, before choosing one of 25 pre-determined programmes to seamlessly adapt to driver behaviour and road conditions.

WHEELS

All vehicles will be specified with Range Rover Sport SVR-specific 21-inch alloys and all-season 275/45 R21 tyres. Optional 22-inch Continental tyres are available, and if specified, wet-weather performance is enhanced, while traction, grip and lateral-cornering are outstanding on dry tarmac to ensure an exhilarating experience.

SOUND OF SVR

In a 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.

SOUND OF SVR

A new racecar-like soundtrack audibly distinguishes the Range Rover Sport SVR, with a purposeful, modulated pulsing at lighter throttle openings combined with a higher-frequency, increasingly urgent staccato sound as peak performance is unleashed.

SOUND OF SVR

At lower revs, the electronically controlled valves close off two tailpipes for maximum refinement. As engine speed and load increases – typically around 3000rpm – the valves open, allowing greater flow through all four exhaust pipes and increasing the volume and quality of the acoustics without introducing an abrupt change of character.

SOUND OF SVR

The new active exhaust system has been designed to ensure the Range Rover Sport SVR’s outstanding off-road performance is unaffected should owners decide to exploit its 850mm wading capability.
