Now it’s time to get down to the good stuff. Capable of throwing down 550 horsepower and reaching a top speed of 162 miles per hour, the Sport SVR can reach 0 to 60 in a swift 4.5 thanks to its well-known supercharged 5.0-liter used in the Jaguar XFR-S, XKR-S, XJR and F-Type R Coupe.
Helping to shift all of that power into gear is an eight-speed automatic from ZF suited for high-performance fun, but it also offers a subtle, smooth and comfortable driving experience that the Range Rover lineup is famous for. According to Land Rover, this is the same gearbox used in non-SVR models but has been “retuned” for this sporty SUV, which is claimed to shift 50-percent faster.
Not only is this SRV the fastest Range Rover yet, as can be plainly seen in the video below of the SRV roaring around a rain-soaked Silverstone Circuit, considered the “Home of British Motor Racing” near Northampton, England, it also includes some sweet cosmetic upgrades for a much more aggressive appearance. The SVR-spec Sport features a more aggressive front end with noticeably larger intakes on the front fascia. Helping to beef up the rear end is a quad-tipped exhaust.
However, since the SRV is still a part of the Land Rover lineup, it comes equipped with off-road capabilities. The air suspension can be adjusted from the lowest setting to off-road, ranging a total of 9.3 inches from the highest point to the lowest. The new SRV is quite the head-turner, and according to sources at AutoBlog, it can be yours for just $110,000 starting this October.
