We May See a 575 hp Range Rover Sport Early Next Year


If you've always wanted a Range Rover Sport with a whole lot of power, then get ready! You may get exactly what you want as soon as next year, by way of the 2017 Range Rover Sport SVR.Those in the know recall that the Special Vehicle Research version of the Range Rover Sport has been available with a 550 hp V8, but the new model might see even a few more horsepower. Find out the details here at Motor Werks Land Rover.

Supercharged Range Rover Sport Performance

The Range Rover Sport SVR uses a supercharged 5.0L V8 good for 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. That's a lot of power, and it will propel that SVR up to 60 mph from stopped in only 4.5 seconds, on to a top speed of an electronically limited 163 mph.

Fans of the Land Rover brand are probably well aware that Land Rover and luxury automaker Jaguar are part of the same family. Even more astute automotive aficionados probably understand that the two companies use the same engines in many vehicles, the Range Rover Sport included. Recently, Jaguar introduced a Jaguar F-Type sports car with a version of the supercharged V8 used in the Range Rover Sport that produces 575 hp. That has lead to speculation that the new Range Rover Sport SVR could see a 25 hp power boost, up to 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. 

Land Rover has declined to comment or confirm on the reports that say that the Range Rover Sport will see the improved engine. If the new Range Rover Sport does see this upgraded engine, you can expect that it will drop a tenth of a second or two off the SUVs 0 to 60 mph sprint time, though the vehicle will likely continue with its limited top speed for safety reasons.
