At the recently concluded Goodwood Festival of Speed, Land Rover brought its fastest and most powerful production model ever: the prototype of its 542hp Range Rover Sport SVR, the first model to wear the new SVR designation that will be worn by all of Land Rover's future high-performance vehicles.
Clad in red/white/blue wrap, the Range Rover Sport SVR prototype was delivered in a packing case direct from the Nurburgring Test Center in Germany where it had been undergoing development.
According to Land Rover, the performance data it will gather from the SVR "will extend the Range Rover Sport's established capabilities as the fastest, most agile and most responsive Land Rover ever built."
While details of the Range Rover Sport SVR's powertrain are still being kept under wraps, the audiences at Goodwood were treated to its guttural soundtrack that seemed eerily similar to that of the Jaguar F-Type's V8 engine.
Watch the video to hear what we mean when we say it's the world's angriest-sounding Range Rover Sport.
