Range Rover Sport SVR in action

Range Rover's engineers have turned up the wick on the Range Rover Sport to create a 542bhp SVR version - now with video

The Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team is a new department focused on high performance models and this is their latest creation - the Range Rover Sport SVR. 

The SVR badge will be applied to all of Land Rover and Jaguar's future performance models and a Range Rover Sport SVR prototype was spotted running up the famous hill at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed

It gave the Goodwood showgoers a chance to hear the roar from the 542bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8 that sits under the bonnet. We’re expecting the newcomer to be able to sprint from 0-62mph in around 4.8 seconds. 

Through the camouflage you can clearly see the Sport is set to get an aggressive makeover, with a low front bumper and chunky side sills. Expect to see firmer suspension, torque vectoring and active body control to help limit roll. 

The Range Rover Sport SVR will be built alongside the standard car and sold through normal Land Rover showrooms just before the end of the year. A final price hasn’t been confirmed, but it should cost just under £100,000. 

Next in the SVR plan is believed to be a hot Evoque, which will be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo producing around 300bhp.

POS get a Meeeerrrrrrccc.

Money now please.

I see that you need your name, as your obviously thick

If you're going to call someone thick, it's probably best to check you haven't misspelled "you're" whilst calling them thick...just saying

You are thick, is that better, feck sake, maybe i should contact C4 and get you a job on Countdown, as you are quite clearly the spelling queen, rather than worry about spelling, which is irrelevant, why not actually spend your time commenting on the actual post, or are you to thick for that :-)

You are thick, is that better, gods sake, maybe i should contact C4 and get you a job on Countdown, as you are quite clearly the spelling queen, rather than worry about spelling, which is irrelevant, why not actually spend your time commenting on the actual post, or are you to thick for that :-)

"or are you to thick for that" - do you mean too thick? Spelling is clearly irrelevant....

ooooo another Countdown corner candidate, I think that your irrelevant, for commenting in the manner that you have chosen to do so, why not actually comment on the article, rather than choosing to comment on a missing 'o', it makes you the stupid one, or as a colleague of mine would say, "if they spend more time doing what you should be doing rather than wasting your time on fripperies, you might actually learn something"

Why? You can get a Porsche Cayenne GTS for £68k?

the exhaust sounds needs to be a lot deeper to reflect the size of the vehicle. it sounds too much like a an f-type scratching to get away. other than that i think he must have achieved a record breaking 2mpg's on that run.

Am I logged in to Auto Express for Morons? Come on people keep the threads related to the cars. If you want an argument save it for the pub, most of us don't care if you can spell or have no command of English. We log in to read about cars, and of course your comments on the cars in question.

Do you realise you have just criticised someone for a grammatical error, then just made the exact same mistake in your previous comment? "I think that your irrelevant" I think you should avoid pointing out other peoples mistakes unless you know what YOU'RE talking about.

go away.... go back to your hole and worry sheep, your comments are not worthy of being read, and, was, a total waste, of ten seconds, of my life..... LOL.. pathetic

totally agree, shame others are not as thoughtful.

LR have turned to penny-pinching ebrochures on their website now. Their attitude being if you want a brochure made out of paper, ask a dealer. I asked my dealer, who after what seemed like an eternity and left me feeling as if I'd asked for half an hour in bed with his wife, finally handed over a rather scruffy 2013 model year brochure. Sorry LR, you've just lost a customer with your penny-pinching ways.Bring back paper brochures on your website so those of us who prefer them can order them without hassle! #landroveruk#cheapskates
