Worldwide debut for fastest ever supercharged Range Rover Sport
THE Range Rover Sport SVR this week made its global debut at Pebble Beach in California.
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 to 60mph in just 4.5 seconds. A top speed electronically limited to 162mph and a Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time of eight 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-litre supercharged V8 engine has been developed to produce 550PS and 680Nm — substantial 40PS and 56Nm increases — without compromising fuel economy.
And its advanced ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel-drive chassis have been optimised to complement its astonishing performance, whatever the weather.
