RANGE ROVER SPORT SVR: GRIPPING ACCELERATION

Many customers will have been attracted by the 0-100km/h time of only 4.7 seconds, but the official figure only scratches the surface of the Range Rover Sport’s capability…

 

  • All-Terrain acceleration test proves Land Rover’s capability and pace in all conditions
  • Range Rover Sport SVR verifies its super-SUV credentials setting 0-100km/h times on variety of low friction surfaces
  • Innovative Land Rover Terrain Response 2 technology maximises acceleration even on grass, gravel, snow or sand

Come rain or shine, grass or gravel, snow or sand, the Range Rover Sport SVR delivers devastating pace.

 

Merging legendary all-terrain capability with 550PS V8 power and advanced traction technology provides Land Rover’s fastest vehicle with unique real world performance.

 

Since going on sale in Spring 2015, the Range Rover Sport SVR has showcased the abilities of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations. This model has contributed to more than 285,000 second-generation Range Rover Sports being delivered to customers around the world since its launch in 2014. Many will have been attracted by the 0-100km/h time of only 4.7 seconds, but the official figure only scratches the surface of the Range Rover Sport’s capability

 

When the perfect traction offered by clean, dry asphalt isn’t available, most sports cars immediately suffer from a lack of grip, stability and performance. But no sports car has the benefit of Land Rover’s legendary all-terrain know-how.

 

In this unique test the SVR completes the 0-100km/h sprint on standard fit Michelin 275/45 R21 All Season Tyres on everything from asphalt and grass to snow and sand, using Land Rover’s innovative Terrain Response 2 technology.

 

The intelligent system automatically selects the appropriate driving mode to suit traction conditions including: General Driving, Dynamic, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud and Ruts, Sand, and Rock Crawl. The driver can also use a simple rotary controller on the centre console to choose a specific mode.

 

TERRAIN, MODE & 0-100KM/H TIME:

The Range Rover Sport SVR is famed for its on-road performance but this hasn’t been achieved at the expense of customary Land Rover capability. Our Terrain Response 2 technology takes the stress out of driving in all conditions.
