542bhp 2018 Range Rover Velar SVR will go on sale next year

The BMW X6 M won’t be able to rest on its laurels any longer as a fresh counterpart is ready to take on. It’s a new supercharged V8 SUV 2018 Range Rover Velar SVR, expected to go on sale in 2018.

Utilizing the same 5.0-litre powertrain as Range Rover Sport SVR, it’s supposed to offer  542bhp as well as 502lb ft of torque on tap. As a result, the vehicle’s capable of hitting 62mph for 4.2sec.

SVR weight-saving measures are expected to enable the aluminium-based Velar to reduce its kerbweight to approximately 1800kg. Compared to the hottest X6 it’s going to become 465kg lighter.

The 2018 Range Rover Velar SVR will also obtain a unique chassis set-up, which has been already honed on the Nürburgring. The given set-up is going to be headed by fresh performance settings for the vehicle’s regular-fit adaptive dampers.

As for pricing, it will most likely start at approximately £90,000 for the Velar SVR. So, it’s going to be  £7500 more affordable than the larger Range Rover Sport SVR.
