The Range Rover Velar has only simply broken cover but it appears Land Rover is currently preparing a high performance version– the Velar SVR. Pictures thanks to YouTube channel supercarsfromeu show the brand-new model has a likewise aggressive bodykit as other SVR models while the sound from the video footage suggests the company’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 been offered a sporty transformation. The wheelarches have swelled compared to the basic model to accommodate wider tires on its substantial 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 performance capacity. Unusually, the SVR test car in the video utilizes conventional door deals with compared with the pop-out versions featured on the regular Velar– it’s not clear if they’re being dumped to conserve weight or made more easy for the purposes of development.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR remodeling, too. The generally comfortable seats will probably be replaced by similar pail seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– potentially in a variety of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fibre surrounding the cabin to strengthen the sporty image, while infotainment will can be found in the type 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 featured in the Range Rover Sport, however it should still have more than 500hp– the same engine will most likely be shared with the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We anticipate a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with top speed restricted to 155mph.
All that additional power will require a series of managing upgrades, consisting of upgraded software application for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and managed as possible. The aforementioned alloy wheels are made larger to accommodate upgraded brakes, while the thinner tyre sidewall will trigger less body roll, additional improving handling.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Price and Release Date
We’ll see an SVR variant up until a minimum of November 2018, perhaps stretching into 2019. With the routine Velar costing around ₤ 45,000 and the Range Rover Sport SVR priced around ₤ 100,000, the Velar SVR should cost between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
