Spy photos of the new Range Rover Sport SVR
The new Range Rover Sport SVR pictured on its return to the aforementioned circuit sports a lighter camouflage. Although practically the entire exterior is covered by camouflage, Land Rover has removed a significant amount of the front. This allows us to intuit more clearly what the design is that is hidden under the vinyl and temporary elements used by the company to avoid prying eyes.
At the front, the air inlets and the grill are exposed. Curiously, the optical groups are partially covered. On the sides and behind, camouflage is the protagonist. In addition to the characteristic vinyl used by Land Rover, there are certain temporary panels that seek to hide the design. The exhaust system outlets are visible.
The rear area of the new Range Rover Sport SVR has been shown to be more evolved and closer to the production version in other sightings. The exhausts, for example, have already been seen with their final trims.
The powerful V8 engine of the new Range Rover Sport SVR
Under the hood of the new Range Rover Sport SVR is one of the main keys of this variant. It will make use of a powerful 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine. a block of BMW origin used, among other models, by the BMW X5 M Competition. An engine whose power will be around 600 hp and will be associated with an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox and a 4×4 drive system.
An important key of the aforementioned engine is that it is a conventional mechanic. It does not have any type of electrification. Not even 48-volt light hybrid technology (MHEV).
When will it hit the market? The landing at European dealerships of the new Range Rover Sport SVR is set for the first half of 2023. Therefore, it is not ruled out that its debut will take place before the end of this year.
