Lighter, stronger, faster

There’s a Range Rover for the luxury seekers, and then there’s the souped-up SVR variant for performance seekers. The Range Rover Sport SVR wasn’t available in India, until today that is. At ₹2.19 crore (ex-showroom), you are forking out the kind of money you would have reserved for a penthouse. But that eye-watering price tag gets you a 5-litre supercharged V8 producing 575bhp and 700Nm of torque. All this power means you can go from 0-100kph faster than you can count the number of zeroes in the price tag. That's 4.5 seconds if you’re a stickler for stats. It’s not only the fastest Land Rover, but also among the lightest thanks to the all aluminium chassis, which is more dynamic but without compromising on the traditional all-terrain Range Rover comfort. The other high performance element is the 19 speaker, meridian surround sound system which combines 825 watts, a dual-channel subwoofer, and Trifield technology that we can’t wait to test out.
