Range Rover Sport 5.0 V8 SVR
The Ultimate in Sports 4x4 – Thrilling Performance SUV
The initials SV stand for Special Vehicle and R stands for Race. Jaguar Land Rover wanted their customers to be able to get the ultimate performance from their sport labeled cars and started a bespoke division named Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) to offer this highly specialised division.
By adding the SVO magic this Range Rover Sport SVR is lighter, more aerodynamically efficient and more powerful than any other model within the range and the most powerful Land Rover in the company's long and distinguished history. The SVR deploys a storming 542bhp from its supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine and has a number of mechanical and dynamic changes to accompany all of this additional power.
On the outside SVR badging marks out this car as something special with styling upgrades consisting of new black grill, revised bumper bonnet and front wings enlarged front air intakes and a new roof spoiler, diffuser and quad tailpipes. None of these revision look over the top and all together the sheer presence of the Sport with the total package of race bred updates create an impression of genuine menace.
To make the SVR's interior extra special it needed little work as the regular Sports material quality, fit and finish are all already first class. The SVR does enjoy a higher resolution touchscreen along with a head-up display. The seats are more sculpted sporty buckets with contrasting piping. The seats have 16-way electronic adjustment. All together the interior is truly one of opulence and a great place to spend time.
As well as making for a great inter-city express or town car, the Range Rover Sport still performs perfectly for when you're feeling adventurous and choose to traverse rough terrain or drive in extreme weather conditions. Nothing screams class and confidence quite like a Range Rover does, and you will quickly understand why this is a machine that you can truly depend on in all circumstances.
This car demands respect wherever it is seen whether pulling up gleaming shiny at a Grand Hotel or fording a river completely splattered with mud. The ride is excellent in all circumstances and there are a multitude of driver aids to adjust just about everything. And the sound! This blasts from the quad exhausts roaring and rasping menacingly prompting head turns from afar. Feel it and hear it for yourself by calling The Dream Collection and start out on your very own SVR adventure.
The Range Rover Sport has SVR heated front and rear Performance seats with accentuated exterior design, 12.3" Driver Interactive Display, Navigation Pro, Acoustic laminated Windscreen, 21" 5 split-spoke alloy wheels.
