Range Rover Sport SVR hangs its tail out at Rockingham
So, while Land Rover helps Jaguar launch its first crossover, the performance gurus at Jaguar can in turn help their brothers at Land Rover launch their first truly performance-oriented sport-utility vehicle. That, of course, would be the new Range Rover Sport SVR – the first in what promises to be a long line of vehicles from both companies to wear those letters. Previewed at Goodwood and revealed at Pebble Beach, the Range Rover Sport SVR packs the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 – all 550 metric horsepower of it – as the Jaguar XJR, XFR-S and F-Type R, but packs room for seven, all-wheel drive, a high riding position and even more utility than the XFR-S Sportbrake we drove at the Nürburgring recently.
But don't take our word for it. Land Rover has released this 1:30-long video clip showing the Range Rover Sport SVR behaving most un-Land Roverly at the Rockingham Motor Speedway, which, rather suitably, happens to be the UK's fastest racing circuit.
