Here’s Proof The Range Rover Velar SVR Is Coming

Complete with 570-horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V8.

When we spoke with the Range Rover Velar’s designer, Massimo Frascella, in Shanghai last month, we learned that early signs point to the road-focused Range Rover as being the most successful of the four-model lineup. So it comes as no surprise that Land Rover is already working on a high-performance variant in the form of the Velar SVR. Set to battle the likes of the Porsche Macan Turbo and Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV, the Range Rover Velar SVR can be seen here in obligatory monochrome camouflage testing at the Nurburgring.

The powerful engine you will hear is JLR’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with 567 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque at its disposal. The most potent Velar currently available uses a 380-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6, enabling it to sprint to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph.

The SVR variant will blast to 62 mph in around four seconds and hit a top speed closer to 180 mph. To make the most of all that extra power, the Velar SVR will receive new performance settings for the suspension, a faster shifting transmission, beefier Brembo brakes, bigger alloys, and an active exhaust that will give it a racecar-like soundtrack. Visual differences to distinguish the SVR from the stock Velar will include new bumper deigns, muscular side skirts, a quad exhaust, and a rear spoiler and diffuser. It will also likely launch in a brand new body color and come carrying a price tag of around $95,000.
