The 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR has just been unveiled two days ago but Land Rover released the first promotional video with the new vehicle. Set to make its world debut tomorrow at Pebble Beach, the Range Rover Sport SVR starts at $110,475 in the US (excluding $925 destination charge) and at 92,450 GBP in the United Kingdom.
Back in July, Land Rover says that the Range Rover Sport SVR became the fastest production SUV around the Nurburgring after lapping the well-known German racetrack in 8 minutes and 14 seconds. The new SUV is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, generating 550 hp and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque.
As a result, it is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds. Top speed is limited to 260 km/h or 162 mph. The engine is linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission developed by ZF and returns 14 mph city/19 mpg highway/16 mpg combined.
As you can see from the photos, the new Range Rover Sport SVR comes with a new exterior design consisting of a front bumper with trapezoidal air intakes, a grill featuring a dark finish, dark Range Rover lettering on the hood, new fender vents and unique side moldings as well as a new roof spoiler and gloss black air diffuser which integrates the quad exhaust pipes.
The powerful SUV will be available with a choice of seven colors, including the impressive Estoril Blue featured on the vehicle you see in the video. Also the interior was overhauled and arrives with aluminum trim details while as an option Land Rover offers carbon fiber.
In addition, the leather sport seats are finished in Oxford leather with ribbed, quilted centers. Behind the 21-inch wheels wrapped in high-performance Continental Cross Contact all-season tires, we find new six-piston Brembo brakes. In order to deliver a proper sound, the vehicle arrives larger exhaust pipes (2.3-inches or 60 mm in diameter).
