Launched a few months ago, the third generation of the Range Rover Sport finally has its powerful version, called SV. Compared to the previous generation, one of the striking changes is that it separates from its "good old" 8.5-liter V0 engine with Jaguar compressor, to adopt another V8: the 4.4-liter biturbo signed BMW. In the new Range Sport SV, it develops a whopping 635 hp and 750 Nm.

That's not all, because the microhybrid system grafted to the engine can provide a temporary boost, reaching up to 800 Nm. In short, the jump is spectacular compared to the 575 hp of the "old" Range Sport SVR that it replaces. And as you may have noticed, a letter is missing from the new one. Some are already speculating that Land Rover is later adding the missing R, for an even more powerful version.

Chassis to the endorsement

To manage all this, the engineers looked at the chassis, like never before. The steering is the most direct a Range Rover has ever equipped, and the manufacturer says its piloted suspension system – dubbed 6D Dynamics – is simply the most advanced in its class.

The Range Sport SV is also the very first production vehicle to be able to accommodate 23-inch carbon wheels, and the first of the brand to offer carbon-ceramic brakes. Adding these options to the standard carbon hood reduces the total weight by 76 kg. Admittedly, there are still 2,485 left, which is significant. But that does not prevent the machine from shooting down the 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds, and to point at 290 km / h. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but it's hardly urgent, since all "Edition One" versions from the 2024 production year are already sold.
