The new-generation Range Rover has been spied by CARANDDRIVER media several times, and Land Rover is also working on the replacement for the Range Rover Sport. The latter is the protagonist of the images that we have just received, but of course, in its wildest version of all and that is that the SVR will be present again in the next installment of the popular British SUV.
At first glance, it is difficult to distinguish the aesthetic differences between the Range Rover Sport SVR 2023 and the normal variants of the SUV, mainly due to the presence of a dense camouflage that fulfills its mission wonderfully as it hides all the aesthetic keys of this model. However, there are no vinyl stickers that can hide its generous disc brakes and four exhaust outlets, elements that have given away this SVR variant.
The most aggressive in the range
Once the artificial fur is removed, probably in early 2023 (considering the standard Range Rover Sport will debut late next year) the SVR will showcase a more aggressive overall design. The bumpers should look sportier, with larger air intakes at the front and a generous diffuser at the rear, as well as a roof-mounted spoiler that should also be more imposing.
On the inside, there will be changes on sports variants normal: front seats with additional lateral reinforcements options upholstered most exclusive, perhaps tested by stitching and embellishments in bright colors, and a system of improved infotainment and digital clocks. The driving modes will also be refined and, in the sportier environment, it will be more efficient than in the current SVR.
Around 600 horsepower is expected from BMW's supposed V8 Biturbo engine, which would give it a 25 hp advantage over the current generation. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission will be the other protagonists. The 0-100 km / h will be completed in less than 4.5 seconds, which is the official time of its predecessor, while the top speed could still be limited to 280 km / h.
Like the regular 2023 Range Rover Sport, the SVR is understood to be built on the MLA platform. The architecture, shared with the largest and most luxurious next-generation Range Rover, can accommodate internal combustion engines, mild hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and even electric powertrains.
