Range Rover Sport SVR, new SUV for the competitive market
|   Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Range Rover Sport is a reputed car with a clean sheet when it comes to performance. However, it is not proving adequate for this competitive market. There is a new trend of SUVs that has caught on, and almost all major companies and brands have started to build their own SUVs, and Range Rover is not going to be left behind.

Companies like Porsche, Mercedes Benz had already started to compete in SUV category with their Cayenne Turbo, ML63 AMG and X5 M respectively.
Even brands specializing in luxurious sports car like Maserati and Lamborghini are also indulging in this competitive field.

After all these releases, Range Rover also decided to get their own contribution to this sector. And so they have decided to get a Range Rover Sport SVR on the road, and in this attempt of theirs, they have already built a prototype and even sent it to a festival for showcasing.

This weekend is going to be witness to Goodwood festival. It has been a big occasion for Jaguar and Range Rover to show off their new cars and concepts as well. Now they are showing a camouflaged prototype of their newest addition of their lineup, a SUV.

Being a camouflaged version, it is pretty sure that the Range Rover Sport SVR is not going to look anything like the finished car. However, a basic idea of exterior design as well as cabin space and boot space can be made under the camouflage, which is very important in case of a SUV.

It is interesting to note that this is a product of Jaguar's new Special Operations department from Land Rover. They have been in action for a few weeks only and have made a mark already. It is only a matter of time when they will excel further.

Coming to power train of Sport SVR, it is going to have an unchanged engine form earlier days. It is going to be a supercharged V8 engine with a capacity of 5 liters. It might come across as a bit disappointing, but there are surprises to compensate for that.

It is going to pack 542 horsepower. That is way better than what it had before. And that with an unchanged engine, so it is completely powerful. So it is in the same class as other Jaguar high performance power packed cars like F-Type coupe, XKR S, XFR S and XJR.

It is going to be showcased at Lord March's, and that is a lucky place for Jaguar. It has been tested in Nurburgring circuits and there are pictures and videos of the disguised prototype there. The laps it makes shows its true potential and some design changes can be expected as well.

Authorities at the company are very happy with their efforts and they have praised the car heavily. It has been termed as most agile and also fastest by them. It might even be the most responsive car from Land Rover, according to their views and ideas.
