Land Rover has taken the wraps off the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR which will be seen in the metal on August 14 at Pebble Beach. The high-performance crossover has been equipped with a redesigned front bumper boasting beefier air intakes while also at the front we notice an updated grille, different front fender vents, more aggressive side skirts and 21-inch rims wrapped around in all-season Continental Cross Contact tires. At the back there’s a quad exhaust system, a glossy black diffuser and a tweaked bumper.
Inside the cabin it comes with a turned aluminum trim (optional carbon fiber available), a two-tone Oxford leather upholstery with SVR badging and reflective piping seen on the front and rear individual sport seats.
The main attraction relies under the hood where the Range Rover Sport SVR has a V8 5.0-liter supercharged gasoline engine developing 550 bhp (410 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) which makes it 40 bhp (30 kW) and 55 Nm (41 lb-ft) more powerful than the previous range-topper, the Range Rover Sport Supercharged. The engine works with an 8-speed sport-tuned automatic gearbox and a four-wheel drive system granting a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run in 4.5 seconds and a 162 mph (260 km/h) electronically-limited top speed.
In the United States, the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR will carry a starting price of $110,475, without taking into account the $925 destination charges.
