2019 Range Rover Velar SVR
The Range Rover Velar has actually only just broken cover but it appears Land Rover is currently preparing a high performance variation– the Velar SVR. Pictures courtesy of YouTube channel supercarsfromeu show the brand-new model has a likewise aggressive bodykit as other SVR models while the sound from the footage suggests the firm’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 actually been given a stylish remodeling. The wheelarches have actually swelled compared to the standard model to accommodate wider tyres on its huge alloy wheels. Its honeycomb front grille and 4 cannon-sized exhausts echo the most powerful F-Type and leave no doubt about the car’s efficiency potential. Oddly, the SVR test car in the video uses traditional door handles compared to the pop-out versions featured on the routine Velar– it’s unclear if they’re being ditched to conserve weight or made more simple for the functions of advancement.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR makeover, too. The normally comfortable seats will most likely be changed by similar container seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– perhaps in a variety of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fiber surrounding the cabin to reinforce the sporty image, while infotainment will can be found in the form of Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro system.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Engines and Driving
Taking a look at the video footage, the engine sounds like the firm’s existing 5.0-litre supercharged V8. It’s unclear whether the Velar SVR will receive the full-fat 550hp unit included in the Range Rover Sport, but it must still have more than 500hp– the very same engine will probably be shared with the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We expect a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with top speed limited to 155mph.
All that extra power will necessitate a variety of handling upgrades, including upgraded software application for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and managed as possible. The previously mentioned alloy wheels are made bigger to accommodate updated brakes, while the thinner tyre 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 at least November 2018, perhaps extending 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 in between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
