2015 Range Rover Sport SVR
The current generation Range Rover was already one of, if not our favorite high-end SUV on the market. Now that Land Rover has decided to roll out the beefed up 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR, we know exactly how we’d spend our $110,000.
The exterior has been revamped to include new, more aggressive front and rear fascias, but it’s in the performance department where this thing really stands out. The supercharged 5.0-liter V8 is pumping out 40 more ponies than the standard Supercharged model, amounting to 550 total horsepower. The power is delivered through an improved 8-speed automatic transmission that shifts 50 percent faster than its predecessor. So what do these new power numbers, and reworked transmission amount to? This setup has given the Rover everything it needs to become the fastest production SUV on the planet, lapping the Nurburgring circut in just 8 minutes and 14 seconds. The Range Rover Sport SVR can also sprint to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 162 miles per hour. Check out the video below.
