Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR
The car company Land Rover has demonstrated an extreme version of the new Range Rover Sport SVR. This off-road car became the strongest in the history of the company. Showed a muscular car at the Pebble Beach Elegance Festival. It is no secret that Land Rover has long ago established itself as a quality manufacturer of off-road vehicles.
Moreover, Range Rover SUVs are very popular all over the world. Recently the second family Range Rover Sport 2 was presented, which at once became a favorite of many fans of the company. And then there was another update of the popular manufacturer. The car received a very powerful power unit. The whole model range is Land Rover.
If you don’t look and know in detail the appearance of the powerful Range Rover Sport 2 SUV, it will be extremely difficult to find changes, especially for inexperienced people. The bow of the car has a modified bumper and a new grille.
The front fenders have easily placed fundamentally different air intakes, which had a positive impact on the appearance of the new product, giving maximum aggression. It is clear that the manufacturer’s logo was left in its place. The hood has not undergone any changes. The sports appearance of the SUV is characterized not only by the low roof and the geometry of the rear racks.
A lot of time has been devoted to the various details of the carefully designed design. The bumper was spectacular with the auxiliary air intakes and also increased the black radiator grille. Aluminum wing panels, together with unique side moldings, gave the machine a masculinity and athleticism. By the way, the bumper did not receive fog lights.
And thanks to the noise insulation grid, which found its place in front of the bumper, it was possible to reduce the degree of noise inside the car, which creates a comfortable environment. Turning to the side of the Range Rover Sport SVR, you can notice the presence of new side skirts, impressive wheel arches and the most beautiful 21-inch rims, which are installed even in the basic equipment for this car.
It seems that they are simply designed for this car and fit perfectly into the exterior of a sports SUV. It is hard not to notice the presence of branded brakes and a wide range of colors. Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR has also undergone some changes. It was decided to increase the spoiler, diffuser and exhaust pipes, which were changed.
In everything else, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR has remained as elegant, impressive and attractive as the Range Rover Sport 2. Interestingly enough, the owner of this handsome guy will be able to underestimate the air-type suspension. The car is equipped with a similar option. This is a very practical solution, as sometimes it is necessary to increase stability at higher speed.
The Terrain Response service is responsible for this configuration. It is able to analyze the road and as a result of purchased data to choose the mode. There are also outstanding body characteristics where there is a boiled frame providing excellent rigidity on torsion. This makes it possible to open any door and get out of the car even on the suspended ice rinks.
The saloon of the luxury SUV was designed on the platform of the SUV exterior concept. Here it will not be possible to see bright and shouting details, a considerable quantity of colourful colouring. Manufacturers have tried to create an interior extremely practical, elegant and functional. If to speak in general, there are not so many changes, if to compare Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR with Range Rover Sport 2.
The driver’s seat and front passenger’s seat were well thought-out, and as a result they got an excellent side support, which is a very necessary thing, given the power of this car. The armchairs are electrically powered for 16 different settings, which means that they offer unrivalled comfort for long journeys. Also there is a rich free space in the legs. The driver can rely on the multifunctional steering wheel, well readable dashboard and on the not littered console, which is located in the center.
The centre console does not really have many elements, but everything is in place and you can easily reach for the driver’s hand. If you pay attention to the back of the salon, the designers decided not to install a full sofa for 3 people, but installed almost two separate seats. It turns out that the three of us will not be so comfortable to sit down. It is clear that it will be inconvenient only for the passenger sitting in the center. And so, the seats themselves are quite excellent, made in almost the same style as the front seats.
All the interior decoration was made of expensive materials. However, there is also an excellent design, sporty, but refined. The seats are bucket-shaped. Soft leather together with decorative carbon fibre inserts looks expensive. However, the brightest element is the 12.3-inch screen of the board computer, as supported by the touch screen input. It is elegantly placed on the centre console. The central torpedo has a highly intelligent system, known as Terrain Response 2. It is actually packed with electronics.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR decided to install an 8-cylinder 5.0 litre V-type powertrain powered by gasoline equipped with a mechanical supercharger. Such a powerful engine produces about 550 horses and 680 Nm of torque. The difference between the Range Rover Sport 2 of 40 horsepower, in favor of SVR. Work was done by specialists to reconfigure the previously used automatic rifle.
There is a box ZF 8HP70 with 8 ranges and the latest settings. As a result, the gearbox shifts between gears 50% faster than before. The first hundred is achieved by Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR in 4.7 seconds. The strongest off-road Porsche Cayenne will also need a similar amount of time. The maximum speed is not allowed, so there is an electronic limiter. Therefore, the maximum speed is 261 km/h.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is equipped with a full independent air suspension, which allows you to change the height of the ground clearance within the range of 50 to 235 mm. In addition, the car will be able to overcome the ford, the depth of which is up to 850 mm. The new car comes with all-wheel drive system and electronically controlled multi-disc clutch in the center differential, as well as with the rear active differential. The car is equipped with all electronic help systems, which includes a power steering together with an air suspension control unit.
All of them have acquired the latest settings, which had a positive impact on the behavior of the off-road vehicle, it became more sporty, and it became easier and more comfortable to drive. The braking system is equipped with ventilated disc brakes Brembo. To make the car more adapted to the road surface, there are 25 predetermined modes of transmission operation.
The roll suppression service has been improved. It has two separate control channels, which are designed for the rear and front axles. The power unit responds to the pressure of the gas pedal perfectly, in which the performance of improvement works is visible.
