The Range Rover Velar has only simply broken cover however it appears Land Rover is currently preparing a high performance variation– the Velar SVR. Pictures courtesy of YouTube channel supercarsfromeu show the brand-new model has a similarly aggressive bodykit as other SVR models while the sound from the video footage recommends the firm’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 actually been given a stylish remodeling. The wheelarches have actually swelled compared to the standard model to accommodate broader 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 included on the regular 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 transformation, too. The generally comfy seats will most likely be changed by comparable container seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– potentially in a variety of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fiber surrounding the cabin to strengthen the sporty image, while infotainment will be available 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 seems like the company’s existing 5.0-litre supercharged V8. It’s unclear whether the Velar SVR will get the full-fat 550hp system included in the Range Rover Sport, but it must still have more than 500hp– the exact same engine will most likely be shown the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We expect a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with top speed restricted to 155mph.
All that additional power will demand a variety of handling upgrades, consisting of upgraded software for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and controlled as possible. The abovementioned alloy wheels are made bigger to accommodate updated brakes, while the thinner tire sidewall will cause less body roll, more improving handling.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Price and Release Date
We’ll see an SVR version up until at least November 2018, potentially 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.
