Jaguar may be influencing the new Range Rover.
Autocar reported seeing the new Range Rover Sport SVR with bigger intake vents. What does this mean exactly? It appears to suggest that Range Rover is planning to use the V8 that resides in the Jaguar F-Type SVR. This means supercharged 5.0-liters chock full of 575 horsepower and 200 mph, at least in the Jag. The Range Rover SVR, if it gets this engine, is speculated to get to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds which puts it in line with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
Not a whole lot is being said about Range Rover’s new prospective SVR but rumor has it we could be seeing it roll off the line as soon as early 2017, about a year before the new Cayenne is set to launch. It looks like more beastly competition between two gargantuan SUVs with monstrous price tags is in store.
