The Range Rover Velar has actually only simply broken cover however it seems Land Rover is already preparing a high performance version– 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 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 actually been offered a stylish makeover. The wheelarches have swelled compared with the basic model to accommodate broader tyres 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 performance potential. Unusually, the SVR test car in the video uses conventional door deals with compared with the pop-out versions featured on the regular Velar– it’s not clear if they’re being dropped to save weight or made more easy for the functions of advancement.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR transformation, too. The generally comfortable seats will probably be changed by similar pail seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– possibly in a variety of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fiber surrounding the cabin to enhance the stylish image, while infotainment will can be found 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 seems like the company’s existing 5.0-litre supercharged V8. It’s not clear whether the Velar SVR will get the full-fat 550hp unit featured in the Range Rover Sport, but it should still have more than 500hp– the exact same engine will probably be shared with the upcoming F-Pace SVR. We expect a 0-62mph time of less than 4.5 seconds with leading speed restricted to 155mph.
All that additional power will necessitate a range of managing upgrades, including upgraded software application for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and managed as possible. The aforementioned alloy wheels are made bigger to accommodate updated brakes, while the thinner tire sidewall will trigger less body roll, more enhancing handling.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Price and Release Date
We’ll see an SVR variant up until at least November 2018, perhaps stretching into 2019. With the regular Velar costing around ₤ 45,000 and the Range Rover Sport SVR priced around ₤ 100,000, the Velar SVR need to cost in between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
