Made-to-order from Land Rover’s Special Operations.
Land Rover has revealed that the Range Rover Sport SVR is priced in India at INR 2,03,60,606 (ex-showroom, Mumbai, pre-Octroi). The fastest Range Rover variant has been on sale in India since November 2014, a JLR spokesperson told Indian Autos Blog, though this is the first time that the company has listed it on its media pricing bulletin.
The performance-oriented SUV has been available on a made-to-order basis, from JLR’s Special Operations division. It is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 petrol engine capable of 550 PS and 680 Nm of torque paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission and Land Rover’s four-wheel drive system, which accelerate the SUV from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and on to an electronically limited top-speed of 259.2 km/h.
Around Germany’s iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife, the Range Rover Sport SVR managed a time of 8 minutes and 14 seconds, which at that time (August 2014) gave it the title of the quickest SUV around the circuit.
Aside from the retuned engine, the Range Rover Sport SVR is also equipped with Brembo brakes all around, sports suspension, a torque vectoring system, a dynamic active rear locking differential and an active roll system.
Aggressive bumpers, quad-exhaust pipes, SVR badging and sports seats are other features exclusive to the SVR.
