[VIDEO] 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR officially unveiled

The brand new Range Rover Sport SVR has been officially unveiled by Land Rover, ahead of its public debut which will be taking place at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, on the 14th of August.

One of the most impressive SUVs ever produced and the fastest one to ever lap the Nurburgring, the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR, is finally here, as the car manufacturer has officially pulled the wraps off its body. The model in question has received the distinctive front fenders, the new front grille, the muscular side skirts, the large rear spoiler, the new rear bumper, the gloss black diffuser, four tailpipe exhaust system or 21-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in Continental Cross Contact all-season tires.

The model in question has also received the electronically controlled multi plate clutch, the upgraded Torque Vectoring system, the Brembo braking system, the sports suspension, improvied Active-Roll Control, reprogrammed Adaptive Dynamics and much more. The cabin of the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR hasn’t been left unchanged either and this has been upgraded wit features such as the two-tone Oxford leather upholstery, the SVR badging or the aluminum trim or optional carbon fiber trim.

“A thorough range of revisions specially developed by Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations combine to make this premium derivative even more distinctive both inside and out, as well as taking its dynamic capabilities to the next level without impacting on comfort, refinement or all-terrain versatility. The Range Rover Sport SVR is truly the world’s most capable performance SUV”, said the managing director of Land Rover Special Operations, John Edwards.

The brand new 2015 Range Rover Sport has its most important “feature” under its hood, where the 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine is resting. The unit is producing a total output of 550 HP (410 kW) and it has a peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft), which basically means 40 HP (30 kW) and 55 Nm (41 lb-ft) more than what the Range Rover Sport Supercharged has to offer.

The engine has been connected to the sport tuned 8-speed automatic transmission, which is sending power to the four-wheel drive system. The powerful SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds and it has n electronically limited top speed of 261 km/h (162 mph). Keep in mind that the Range Rover Sport SVR has managed to lap the Nordschleife in just 8 minutes and 14 seconds, faster than any SUV out there. Prices for the model in question will be set at 110,475 USD, without the 925 USD destination charge, in the United States.
