Land Rover’s most powerful model ever, the Range Rover Sport SVR, has just become the fastest SUV around the Nürburgring after posting a time of 8 minutes and 14 seconds. This lap time was achieved by one of the company’s test drivers who used a production-spec Range Rover Sport SVR, with power coming from a V8 5.0-liter supercharged gasoline engine unleashing no less than 550 PS (405 kW). As most of you know, the model represents the first product to be developed by the recently established Special Operations division as part of Jaguar Land Rover.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is going to come with a more aggressive body which will encompass a mesh front grille, bigger air intakes, a rear diffuser, as well as a high-performance braking system, beefier alloys and four exhaust pipes. The vehicle should be able to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in less than 5 seconds.
