Range Rover has upped their SUV game with a 550 horsepower supercharged beast! Their newly developed Special Operations Division has been given the task of making more high performance and ultra-luxury editions and they took that job seriously. The 5.0 liter supercharged V8 used in this SVR edition is the same power plant used in the new 2015 Jaguar F-Type.
This family sized beauty will scamper from zero to 60 in just 4.5 sec. If you are keeping score that’s faster than the Mercedes ML63 AMG and the M version of the BMW X5. It’s equipped with an 8 speed automatic transmission and provides lightening quick shifts.
Before you get too excited talking about the performance stats on this newest SUV, don’t forget it’s made by Land Rover and it still is more than ready to take you and the family on an off road excursion and comes equipped with all of the standard goodies needed for those hard to get out of situations. The active roll control system will keep you safely in command of the road both up in the curves of LA’s Mulholland Drive or down in the off road parks in Southern California.
All of this dual capability convenience comes at a hefty price…..the SVR version starts at $110,475 but that ensures you will be the only one on your block who can outrun a Mustang GT and go off-road for an outdoor adventure in the same weekend. You will be able to do all this in style as you show off the SVR’s exclusive Estoril Blue paint.
The newly restyled front end will give you a distinctive look as you roll into the weekly business meeting or the family Holiday dinner. Trust me Uncle Jim will most definitely want to go for a test ride to get more rolls and butter……and the kids will want to tag along is this sophisticated beast.
So skip the part where you ask yourself if you need it and just tell your spouse you've got to have it!
