2015 Range Rover Sport SVR Teased Ahead Of August Release

August 6th, 2014 by

A quick look around the auto industry shows that the market for high-performance SUVs is growing. More and more drivers are opting for utility vehicles with more powerful engines and sportier underpinnings, so we knew it would only be a matter of time before one automaker stepped up and set the bar for high-performing haulers. We are just glad it was Land Rover.

For a couple of months now we have been hearing news about the imminent release of the new 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR. The prototype of this model was displayed at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, but it’s true premier will be only a week from today. Here is a recent teaser video:

With eight supercharged cylinders under the hood, this 5.0-liter engine is expected to deliver 550 horsepower. That is apparently enough to set the SUV record for the fastest  lap time at the Nurburging race track in Germany, a feat completed by the SVR just last week.

We are expecting big things from this new variant of the Range Rover Sport, and you can expect to get all the juicy details right here on our blog when they are finally released. Until then, we invite you to pay us a visit here at the Land Rover Fort Myers showroom to explore the new Land Rover inventory, and have all of your questions answered by our expert staff. We hope to see you soon.
