Land Rover upped the ante on its wild Range Rover Sport SVR in 2018, giving it a significant boost to power and torque, putting it in contention with other performance luxury SUVs.
Specifically, the SVR's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 was tuned to the sound of 423kW and 700Nm, up 17kW and 20Nm over its predecessor.
The vehicle came standard with 21-inch rims, a carbon-fibre bonnet finished in body colour, sports bucket seats with leather interior, dual multimedia screens with satellite navigation, a digital dash and four-zone climate control.
Updates included matrix LED headlights, a new front bumper, bonnet and grille, a redesigned rear valance and various tweaks to interior switchgear and trim pieces.
Mechanical revisions to the SVR’s engine for 2018 included a ported and regeared supercharger and ECU revisions, as well as a lightened exhaust system with infinitely adjustable internal flaps to vary noise levels.
