The Range Rover Velar has actually only just broken cover but it seems Land Rover is already preparing a high efficiency variation– the Velar SVR. Pictures thanks to YouTube channel supercarsfromeu reveal the brand-new model has a likewise aggressive bodykit as other SVR models while the noise from the video recommends the company’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 will power it.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Styling
Like the Range Rover Sport SVR, the Velar SVR has been provided a stylish remodeling. The wheelarches have actually swelled compared to the standard model to accommodate wider tires on its huge alloy wheels. Its honeycomb front grille and 4 cannon-sized exhausts echo the most effective F-Type and leave no doubt about the car’s efficiency potential. Unusually, the SVR test car in the video utilizes standard door handles compared with the pop-out versions featured on the routine Velar– it’s unclear if they’re being dropped to save weight or made more easy for the functions of development.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR makeover, too. The generally comfy seats will probably be replaced by similar pail seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– possibly in a range of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fibre surrounding the cabin to strengthen the stylish image, while infotainment will come in the kind of Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro system.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Engines and Driving
Looking at the video footage, the engine seems like the firm’s existing 5.0-litre supercharged V8. It’s not clear whether the Velar SVR will get the full-fat 550hp unit featured in the Range Rover Sport, however it should still have more than 500hp– the exact same engine will probably be shown the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We expect a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with leading speed limited to 155mph.
All that extra power will demand a variety of managing upgrades, consisting of upgraded software for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and managed as possible. The previously mentioned alloy wheels are made larger to accommodate updated brakes, while the thinner tire sidewall will trigger less body roll, further enhancing handling.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Price and Release Date
We’ll see an SVR version till a minimum of November 2018, possibly stretching into 2019. With the regular Velar costing around ₤ 45,000 and the Range Rover Sport SVR priced around ₤ 100,000, the Velar SVR should cost between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
