Range Rover Sport SVR delivers devastating pace in all driving conditions. Merging legendary all-terrain capability with 405kW of V8 power and advanced traction technology provides Land Rover’s fastest vehicle with unique real world performance.
Since going on sale in 2015, the Range Rover Sport SVR has showcased the abilities of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations. This super-SUV has contributed to more than 285,000 second-generation Range Rover Sports being delivered to customers around the world since the ranged was launched in 2014. Many buyers will have been attracted by the 0-100km/h time of only 4.7 seconds.
When the perfect traction offered by clean, dry asphalt isn’t available, most sports cars immediately suffer from a lack of grip, stability and performance. But no sports car has the benefit of Land Rover’s legendary all-terrain know-how.
The intelligent system automatically selects the appropriate driving mode to suit traction conditions including: General Driving, Dynamic, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud and Ruts, Sand, and Rock Crawl. The driver can also use a simple rotary controller on the centre console to choose a specific mode. On Asphalt, SVR has been timed at 4.7 seconds, on grass; 5.5 seconds, on gravel; 5.3 seconds while on snow; 11.3 seconds.
“The Range Rover Sport SVR is famed for its on-road performance but this hasn’t been achieved at the expense of customary Land Rover capability,” said Driver Darren Jones, Stability Applications Leader, Jaguar Land Rover. “Our Terrain Response 2 technology takes the stress out of driving in all conditions.”
