Tackles Silverstone in the wet.
After recently revealing the fastest, most powerful Land Rover ever built, the British carmaker has now given us a taste of what the Range Rover Sport SVR is capable of. Created in JLR’s SVO division, the hi-po SUV comes packing a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 rated at 542 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque delivered to all four wheels via a sport-tuned eight-speed automatic box. This is a vehicle that will ostensibly be used for cruising and the occasional spot of offroading. But, as this promo video shows, it can also be thrashed to the track.
Here we see it lapping Silverstone in the wet, but it’s previously lapped the Nurburgring in 8 minutes 14 seconds. Debuting tomorrow at Pebble Beach, the Range Rover Sport SVR will hit US showrooms priced $110,475.
