2019 Range Rover Velar SVR spied testing at the Nurburgring
This time I filmed the 2019 Range Rover Velar SVR testing on the Nürburgring.
This video is evidence that the go-faster Velar SVR is under development, ahead of a planned launch in 2018-19.
Sources suggest it will use the familiar supercharged 5.0-litre V8 already seen in the Range Rover Sport SVR. That car has 543bhp and 502lb ft of torque, so performance should be predictably devastating: 0-62mph in the low four seconds is expected.
It's not just brute force, either; SVO is working on a diet programme for the Velar to trim its kerbweight. We anticipate a smattering of lightweight aluminium and composite parts for a lower mass.
The chassis will be upgraded to cope with the extra grunt; larger, high-performance brakes lurk behind those new alloy wheels and the electronic brains governing the V8 and eight-speed automatic transmission will be tuned too.Hidden Content
