What’s new in the 2021 RR Sport SVR
Land Rover says that the Range Rover Sport SVR gets an all-aluminium architecture and bespoke enhancements to the chassis for better dynamic handling without any compromise to its all-terrain capabilities. To improve the performance of brakes at higher temperatures and to improve fading the Range Rover Sport SVR is provided with performance brake pads and discs. The suspension damping is specifically tuned to give an exceptional turn-in, mid-corner grip and body control.
Visually to better differentiate the Range Rover Sport SVR from its standard model there have been subtle changes. It gets a redesigned front bumper with larger air intakes for better brake cooling. The SUV also gets a body-coloured detailing at the rear with the SVR badge to differentiate and a redesigned 21-inch 5 split spoke alloy wheels.
On the inside, the SVR is equipped with lightweight SVR Performance seats finished in high-quality perforated Windsor leather and the SVR logo on the headrests.

To make it the most powerful SUV, the Range Rover Sport SVR is equipped with a 5.0L supercharged V8 petrol engine which makes 567bhp of peak power and 700Nm of peak torque. This is coupled to an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox which powers all four wheels. The SUV takes only 4.5 seconds to reach the 0-100kmph mark, which is quick for an SUV which has a gross weight of 3000kgs.
