This isn’t the first time we see a prototype of the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVR, yet it’s the first time we have the video. The spotted high-performance SUV shows really amazing skills at Nurburgring. However, what’s most important, it releases a familiar sound. Yes, the sound you hear is growling of the supercharged V8.
According to information we have, the 2019 Range Rover Velar SVR will use Jaguar Land Rover’s 5.0-liter supercharged V-8. In contrast to most of the reports that suppose there will be from 500 to 600 hp, we know what’s actually cooking under the hood of the awesome crossover. The gorgeous high-riding vehicle will get exactly 550 ponies and 502 lb-ft of torque. This will enable an impressive 0-62 time of 4.0 seconds. Yes, the Velar SVR will be a faster option then the s Range Rover Sport SVR, which is due to a dynamic appearance and fewer pounds. The mighty engine will be mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive. However, the gearbox and suspension should be tweaked a little bit in order to support SUV’s wild power.
Styling wise, the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar SVR looks pretty much the same as the regular model. Okay, there is a standard high-performance kit such as enlarged wheels and brakes with special brake discs and calipers, as well as restyled front bumper with a bigger hole for engine cooling. In the rear, the prototype shows a new bumper with two exhaust tips.
The most potent Velar SVR will be released in 2018, most likely in the second part of the year. Since it’s going to compete with BMW X6 M, Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe and Porsche Cayenne Turbo, we expect pretty similar pricing as well. More precisely, you will have to set out around $114,000. Yes, this will be one more six-figure vehicle, but we think it’s going to worth every single dollar.
