It did say however, that the Range Rover SVR is designed, engineered and built in Britain.

Visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed will also see other vehicles from Land Rover, such as the Discovery Vision Concept, the Freelander Metropolis, Discovery XXV and the recently announced Range Rover Sport featuring the Stealth Pack.

  • Fastest and most powerful ever production Land Rover breaks cover at Goodwood Festival of Speed
  • First appearance of the new high performance SVR designation for future high-performance Land Rover and Jaguar models created by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations
  • 550PS Range Rover Sport SVR prototype will complete the hill course at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June

The fastest and most powerful ever production Land Rover will make its public debut at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed (27 to 29 June). The Range Rover Sport SVR will be the first model to wear the new SVR designation, which will be worn by all future high performance models.

A camouflaged prototype of the 550PS Range Rover Sport SVR will take a break from its demanding development schedule to give spectators a chance to experience the sights and sounds of the most exhilarating Land Rover ever produced. It will perform a series of runs up the famous Goodwood Hill course in the 'First Glance' category.

The SVR is currently undergoing development prior to going on sale in 2015. Details of the vehicle's 550PS powertrain are still under wraps, but crowds can expect a thrilling soundtrack to match its impressive pace. Performance data for the SVR will extend the Range Rover Sport's established capabilities as the fastest, most agile and most responsive Land Rover ever built.

The Range Rover Sport SVR has been created by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team and all future SVR models will need to meet stringent key performance criteria in order to wear the SVR badge. They will be built alongside existing models and sold through the Land Rover dealer network in the usual way.

Range Rover Sport SVR - designed, engineered and built in Britain - amplifies the engineering integrity, robustness and attention to detail that are hallmarks of today's Land Rover brand.

Land Rover redefined the performance SUV sector with the launch of the original Range Rover Sport in 2005, successfully combining sports performance with uncompromised all-terrain capabilities. This is reflected in the current tally of 500,000 vehicles produced.
