The Range Rover Velar has actually only simply broken cover however it seems Land Rover is currently preparing a high performance version– the Velar SVR. Pictures courtesy of YouTube channel supercarsfromeu reveal the brand-new model has a similarly aggressive bodykit as other SVR models while the sound from the 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 given a sporty remodeling. The wheelarches have actually swelled compared to the basic model to accommodate wider tires on its big alloy wheels. Its honeycomb front grille and four 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 standard door handles compared to the pop-out versions included on the routine Velar– it’s unclear if they’re being dumped to save 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 typically comfy seats will most likely be changed by comparable pail seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– potentially in a range of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fiber surrounding the cabin to strengthen the stylish 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 included in the Range Rover Sport, but it needs to still have more than 500hp– the exact same engine will probably be shared with the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We anticipate a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with top speed limited to 155mph.
All that extra power will demand a series of dealing with upgrades, including updated software for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and controlled as possible. The previously mentioned alloy wheels are made bigger to accommodate updated 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 variant up until a minimum of 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 ought to cost in between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
