2017 Range Rover Sport SVR: 567bhp steel beast

Reporters have come up with the fresh pictures of the imminently arriving 2017 Range Rover Sport SVR vehicle, currently undergoing trials at the Nürburgring.

The 2017 Range Rover Sport SVR seems to have faced minor exterior detail tweaks comprised of moderately enlarged intake vents. It drops a hint at a more potent powertrain under the bonnet.

According to an insurance database number plate check, the test vehicle was making use of a 5.0-litre powerplant, thus underpinning rumors that the SVR’s supercharged V8 will ensure up to 567bhp, sharing the same outcome with the 200mph F-Type SVR. Compared to the regular model, the new version boasts extra 25bhp.

It takes the 2.3-ton SVR just 4.5 seconds to accelerate from zero to 62mph. The given outcome has it ranked alongside the lighter, but less powerful Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Besides this, there’re some further clues as for the vehicle’s updated look. For instance, ii shares a headlight unit with the Velar.
