Range Rover SVR


"Fastest Land Rover ever with 550hp/680Nm V8 supercharged engine"

"Revised chassis and high performance tires for exhilarating dynamics"

"Retains Land Rover's class-leading all-terrain capability"

"Active exhaust provides thrilling V8 soundtrack"

"Capable of a Nurburgring lap time of only 8 minutes 14 seconds"

The Range Rover Sport SVR made its global debut at Pebble Beach on August 14. The fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever produced is the first model to wear the SVR designation being adopted by future Land Rover and Jaguar high performance models.

The Range Rover Sport SVR accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds. A top speed electronically limited to 260km/h 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.

The SVR's range-topping 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine has been developed to produce 550hp and 680Nm - substantial 40hp and 56Nm increases - without compromising fuel economy. And its advanced ZF 8HP70 eight speed automatic transmission and four-wheel-drive chassis have been optimized to complement its astonishing performance, whatever the weather.

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 optimizes 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-optimized 295/40 R22 Continental SportContact 5 tires complement the driver-focused chassis. As standard, new 21 inch alloy wheels with 275/45 R21 all-season tires 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 percent 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 program.

The Range Rover Sport SVR's lightweight aluminium suspension is fully-independent, with wide-spaced double-wishbones at the front and an advanced multi-link layout at the rear. Wheel-travel is class-leading (260mm front and 272mm rear) and provides exceptional wheel articulation of 546mm to deal with the toughest conditions.

Wade Sensing, introduced on the Range Rover Sport, also features on the SVR. This innovative technology provides 'depth' information when driving through water, and in line with the mainstream Sport, the vehicle can wade up to 850mm. It also has towing capability up to 3000kg.

The Range Rover Sport SVR has been created by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team and all SVR models need to meet key performance criteria to wear the SVR badge. Range Rover Sport SVRs will be built alongside their mainstream sibling models in our existing production facilities and sold through Land Rover's dealer network.

Range Rover Sport SVR - designed, engineered and built in Britain - amplifies the engineering integrity, robustness and attention to detail that are Land Rover hallmarks.

The Range Rover Sport was introduced in 2005, and over 500,000 examples have been built to date.
