Range Rover Sport SVR, Fastest Series SUV On Nurburgring
|   Monday, August 04, 2014
Range Rover Sport SVR managed to do a lap on the Nurburgring in 8 minutes and 14 seconds, making it the fastest series SUV in the world on the legendary Nordschleife circuit in Germany. The new SVR, which made ​​its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​in June, returned to the Nurburgring this month to continue the exhaustive test.

The Range Rover Sport SVR is powered by an improved 5.0-liter V8, which now develops 550 hp, 40 hp more than the V8 Supercharged derivatives.
This engine is basically the same unit found on the F-Type R and the standard Range Rover Sport.

Still in the concept stage, the new Range Rover Sport SVR has managed to become the fastest SUV on the Green Hell. It is no surprise, given that the future Range Rover Sport SVR will be at launch the most powerful SUV in the Land Rover range.

The British model is powered by a V8 engine displacing 5.0 liters and making 550 horsepower. With such resources under the hood and a 0 to 100 km / h sprint in less than five seconds, the Range Rover Sport SVR managed to go nearly 22 km on the German circuit in 8 minutes and 14 seconds. 
The record for the fastest SUV on the Nurburgring was established with a production car driven by a test pilot.

We remind you that the future Range Rover Sport SVR is the first product of the Special Operations Division, freshly established within Land Rover, responsible for developing performance versions of existing models.

Of course, this has been achieved without compromising the class-leading vehicle's all terrain capabilities or high levels of comfort. The Range Rover Sport SVR features a twin-speed transfer case to provide a choice of high and low gear ratios and the same 850 mm wading depth as other models in the Range Rover Sport line-up.

The Sports derivative bets on a new body kit that includes a rear deflector, large air intakes, a new grille, wheels and generous braking system.
The handling characteristics of Land Rover Sport SVR were also put to the test at the Nurburgring circuit, because the undulating design of the route is the ultimate test for all high performance vehicles.

Mike Cross, chief engineer vehicle integrity of JLR said: "The Nürburgring is a benchmark for vehicle development and testing, and cars become stronger, more durable and faster over its 13 miles and 70-plus corners. We wanted to see whether an SUV could behave like a performance car in this challenging environment. The results are spectacular and the Range Rover Sport SVR has demonstrated outstanding on-road performance capabilities."

For a better understanding of this performance, know that the time of 8:14 is 1 min 17 secs slower compared to that achieved by the Porsche 918 Spyder, and 20 seconds behind the time achieved by the Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy, but five seconds faster than the time set by Holden SS Ute, little more than 12 months ago.

The Range Rover Sport SVR will arrive in showrooms in 2015.
