Land Rover testing supercharged Range Rover Velar, could come with nearly 600 PS
It looks like Land Rover is not done giving their latest luxury 4x4, the Range Rover Velar, additional upgrades. Recently caught by our eagle-eyed spies at the Nurburgring is apparently the more powerful Velar SVR.
Given that the Range Rover Velar is practically based off the Jaguar F-Pace, it's no surprise that the company is busy making the coupe-inspired 4x4 have more horses under the hood. Like most SVRs on offer today, expect the Velar SVR to come with a potent supercharged V8 that is capable of producing nearly 600 PS.
As for its styling, the camo'd Range Rover Velar SVR appears to be sporting a new front bumper for better aerodynamics and improved engine cooling. Also seen on the prototype are a new set of alloy wheels, bigger disc brakes and a new quad exhaust system. In fact, our spies reported that this particular 4x4 was making all the right noises while it was tearing up the infamous Green Hell.
Other exterior portions of the Velar SVR appeared to have been carried over from its standard counterpart. However, the company could just be in the early stages of testing as they are still busy ironing out the bugs or are still crunching data to review.
Cabin photos are not yet available although expect the SVR to have the same stylish and high-tech interior that the standard model has. On top of that, expect the Velar SVR to come standard with InControl Touch Pro Duo, Terrain Response 2, All Terrain Progress and Active Rear Locking Differential.
The Range Rover Velar SVR could make its official debut some time later this year or in Q1 of 2019.
