Land Rover India has introduced the Range Rover Sport SVR in India, adding to their lineup of dominating and luxurious SUVs. Featuring a 5.0-litre supercharged engine, the Range Rover Sport SVR delivers 567bhp and 700Nm of torque, enabling a 0-100kmph sprint time of 4.5seconds. This then, is the fastest, most powerful and dynamic Land Rover ever produced.
So what does the Rs 2.19 crore (ex-showroom, India) sticker price get you? Designed, engineered and developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations, the luxury performance SUV is hand-finished in Coventry, UK. It unleashes the full potential of the Range Rover Sport’s lightweight and robust all-aluminium architecture while retaining the refinement, luxury and off-road capability for which Range Rover is world-renowned.
Coupled with bespoke enhancements to the chassis, the SVR delivers more dynamic handling without compromising traditional Range Rover comfort or all-terrain capability. It ensures a controlled pitch under heavy acceleration and braking, and the damping hardware is tuned to provide exceptional turn-in, mid-corner grip and body control.
The reprofiled front bumper design lends the Sport SVR an assertive appearance, with functional vents designed to improve brake cooling. The performance brake pads and discs provide enhanced performance at higher temperatures, ensuring the braking system is more resistant to fade during dynamic driving. Body-colored detailing at the rear and an SVR badge also help to identify this performance Range Rover.
Inside the Range Rover Sport SVR, the lightweight SVR Performance seats create an athletic silhouette and provide exceptional comfort on long journeys. Finished in high-quality perforated Windsor leather, the SVR Performance seats reflect the SVR’s status as the ultimate high-performance luxury SUV. Seat backs finished in satin black with an embossed SVR logo on the headrests also deliver heightened exclusivity. The supportive seats also create more rear legroom and the impression of a cosseting four-seat interior, while retaining flexible five-seat capability.
Continuing the high-performance theme, sound quality comes from a 19-speaker Meridian Surround Sound System, which combines 825 watts, a dual-channel subwoofer and Trifield technology for a thrilling personal sound experience in every seat.
The Range Rover Sport SVR goes up against the Audi RS Q8, the BMW X5 M Competition and the Mercedes-AMG GLE 53.
