2023 Range Rover Sport SVR – With the brand new Range Rover Sport now revealed in full, the focus is now turning to the range-topping SVR version. As these new spy photos illustrate, the testing for the upcoming SVR is well going on the Nurburgring in Germany.
The car is still camouflaged however, we now have an idea of what this new SVR will appear when it is made public. There are a plethora of changes to the visuals on the front, including an aggressively shaped bumper, updated grilles, and perhaps new headlights. There are also massive brake discs that appear like six-piston calipers in the front. The massive wheels are encased by Michelin Pilot Sport SUV tires.
2023 Range Rover Sport SVR Redesign
A more camouflaged look has been added to the rear of the car, however, it’s possible to see an even larger roof spoiler that is more imposing than the standard Sport’s. The quad exhausts are the most significant difference, which sits next to a brand front bumper that has been updated.
Its Range Rover Sport first got an enthralling SVR version with the refresh of the second-generation model in 2015. It was powered by a 555bhp 5.0-litre Supercharged V8. We’re expecting more power in the new Sport SVR, the flagship using the identical 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged engine that is found on the BMW X5 M Competition. This engine is in the most recent fully-sized Range Rover with 523bhp, however the SVR is more likely to be able to match with the X5 M’s 616bhp power output. It’s highly unlikely that the SVR will make use of the plug-in hybrid engine that produces 644bhp for the coming XM because it will make BMW’s SUV.
We also can expect that the new SVR to be equipped with identical 8-speed ZF automatic transmission used on the X5 M. While we don’t know anything from these spy images the upgraded suspension and bigger brakes are likely. The new Sport is built on JLR’s MLA-Flex platform, which allows plug-in hybrids as well as full electrification. The Standard Sport is available with a completely electric motor and, given the rapid acceleration provided by electric vehicles It’s likely that the new SVR isn’t the fastest car in the Range Rover Sport lineup from between 62mph and 0 mph. The new model may beat the old model’s 4.5 seconds 0-62mph speed and its top speed of 176mph, however.
JLR’s Dynamic Air Suspension is expected to be a part of the new SVR with twin air chambers that reduce the roll and pitch. A ‘Stormer’-style handling pack is an option for the Sport that includes an electronic active differential , with the ability to vector torque through braking, and four-wheel steering, something that is expected to be included with the SVR.
