Land Rover has shown through a video that--although it's a capable off-road vehicle--the Range Rover Sport SVR also drives like a true sports car.
According to Jaguar Land Rover chief engineer for vehicle integrity Mike Cross, the Range Rover Sport SVR's sophisticated drivetrain and advanced four-wheel-drive chassis technology deliver high-speed handling characteristics. Cross then proves it by driving the vehicle around the Rockingham circuit in the United Kingdom, effortlessly power-sliding the SUV through the corners.
Created by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team, the SVR can accelerate from 0 to 100kph in 4.5 seconds, with its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 550hp and 680Nm.
Watch the video to see the SUV in action.
