542BHP Range Rover Sport SVR is Tower of Power


Range Rover Sport SVR frontA Swiss Army knife is one of the most useful pieces of kit you could have in your pocket. From this small handheld unit you have everything from a knife to tools that can help assemble even the most troublesome flatpack furniture. It does it all and the most modern incarnation even fits perfectly into modern life with the addition of a USB stick. Much like this magical device, the new Range Rover Sport is a car that can seemingly do it all, but now it has got even faster. Enter the Range Rover Sport SVR.

The Range Rover Sport SVR is the most powerful Range Rover in the companies history. 5.0 litre, all-aluminium supercharged V8 engine gives this car an output of 542BHP and a hefty 501 lb ft of torque. That means this Nürburgring tuned variation will get from 0-62MPH in just 4.5 seconds and continue to an electronically limited top speed of 162MPH. To put that into perspective that is an identical acceleration time to a Porsche 911 Carrera S! Despite its new found briskness on road, Range Rover are very keen to point out that this Sport SVR has lost none of its impressive off-road abilities.

Other changes include more aggressive grills and bumpers, with the cabin receiving heavily bolstered sport seats.

This Range Rover Sport SVR is to make its debut at Pebble Beach and go on sale for £93,450. A reasonable price to pay for arguably the only car you will ever need.
