The Range Rover Velar has actually 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 noise from the video 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 given a stylish transformation. The wheelarches have actually swelled compared to the standard model to accommodate wider tires on its huge alloy wheels. Its honeycomb front grille and 4 cannon-sized exhausts echo the most effective F-Type and leave no doubt about the car’s efficiency capacity. Oddly, the SVR test car in the video utilizes traditional door handles compared with the pop-out versions featured on the routine Velar– it’s not clear if they’re being dropped to conserve weight or made more simple for the purposes of advancement.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR makeover, too. The normally comfy seats will most likely be replaced by similar container seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– perhaps in a range of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fiber surrounding the cabin to enhance the sporty image, while infotainment will be available 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 company’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, but it ought to still have more than 500hp– the very same engine will probably be shown the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We anticipate a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with leading speed restricted to 155mph.
All that additional power will require a series of handling upgrades, including updated software application for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and controlled as possible. The aforementioned alloy wheels are made larger to accommodate upgraded brakes, while the thinner tyre sidewall will cause less body roll, additional enhancing handling.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Price and Release Date
We’ll see an SVR variation up until at least November 2018, possibly stretching into 2019. With the regular Velar costing around ₤ 45,000 and the Range Rover Sport SVR priced around ₤ 100,000, the Velar SVR must cost in between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
