The Range Rover SVR is impressively capable on road and off it, but not a car for those wishing to keep a low profile The 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged Petrol 575PS engine delivers a powerful 700Nm of torque taking it from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds. Performance is underlined by the integrated air vents in the Carbon Fibre bonnet and the large intakes in the bumper to maximise airflow to key components when utilising the vehicle’s full potential. The Range Rover sports  SVR was the first car to emerge from JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division, and while a 2.3-ton SUV might not have been a natural choice on which to demonstrate SVO’s abilities, it was certainly an impressive statement of intent.

As before the SVR uses JLR’s supercharged 5-litre V8, and in this application it develops identical power and torque figures to the  Jaguar XJR 575 567bhp and 517lb ft of torque. For comparison, the previous SVR managed 542bhp and 502lb ft, so the increase is subtle, but welcome all the same.
