The Range Rover Velar has only just broken cover but it appears Land Rover is currently preparing a high efficiency version– the Velar SVR. Pictures thanks to YouTube channel supercarsfromeu show the new model has a similarly aggressive bodykit as other SVR models while the noise 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 given a stylish remodeling. The wheelarches have swelled compared to the standard model to accommodate larger tyres 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 efficiency capacity. Strangely, the SVR test car in the video uses traditional door deals with 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 simple for the purposes of advancement.
2019 Range Rover Velar SVR Interior
The interior will get an SVR makeover, too. The generally comfy seats will most likely be replaced by similar container seats to those fitted to the Range Rover Sport SVR– possibly in a variety of colours. There will be lashings of carbon fibre surrounding the cabin to reinforce 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 seems like the firm’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 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 top speed limited to 155mph.
All that extra power will necessitate a variety of handling upgrades, including upgraded software application 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 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 until at least November 2018, possibly extending into 2019. With the routine 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.
