The Range Rover Velar has actually only simply broken cover however it seems Land Rover is already preparing a high efficiency variation– the Velar SVR. Pictures thanks to 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 actually been provided a stylish makeover. The wheelarches have swelled compared to the basic model to accommodate wider tyres on its huge alloy wheels. Its honeycomb front grille and four cannon-sized exhausts echo the most powerful F-Type and leave no doubt about the car’s performance potential. Unusually, the SVR test car in the video utilizes conventional door manages compared to the pop-out versions featured on the regular Velar– it’s unclear if they’re being ditched to conserve weight or made more basic for the purposes of development.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR makeover, too. The usually comfortable seats will probably be replaced 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 fibre surrounding the cabin to strengthen the sporty image, while infotainment will come in the type of Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro system.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Engines and Driving
Looking 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 included in the Range Rover Sport, however it must still have more than 500hp– the 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 leading speed limited to 155mph.
All that additional power will demand a series of handling upgrades, including updated software application for the air suspension to keep the body as flat and controlled as possible. The abovementioned alloy wheels are made larger to accommodate updated brakes, while the thinner tire sidewall will trigger less body roll, further improving handling.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Price and Release Date
We’ll see an SVR variation until a minimum of November 2018, possibly extending 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 between ₤ 85,000 and ₤ 90,000.
