Range Rover Velar SVR Spotted



Land Rover has once again been caught testing a camouflaged Range Rover Velar prototype, this time it was spotted by Carscoops reader Misja Steinen on a highway in Landgraaf, Netherlands.

They only managed to capture the test mule’s rear end and a few missing features do make us question if what we’re seeing really is the performance oriented Velar. For one, the rear bumper seems to be completely missing, opening up the area to the elements. Then there’s the lack of quad tailpipes enthusiasts has come to expect from the brand’s high-performance models.

Even though this specific mule may not be featuring these parts, we should see them appear on the production spec Velar SVR when it makes its debut this summer before sales are expected to begin in Europe.

Once the Velar SVR makes its grand entrance, there will be no mistaking it for the standard models as it will receive some design tweaks including a unique grille, modified bumper and new air intakes. What’s more, the Range Rover Velar SVR should be able to deliver at least 542 horsepower thanks to a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, putting it on even playing field with the likes of the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 and Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio,

Aside from the SVR, what other variant of the Velar could it be? The ground clearance looks pretty much unchanged so it probably isn't an off road model. You can only get sportier form here.

Too bad there's no mention of weight reduction because that's obviously one are performance SUV's are weak in and when it comes to dominating the various performance measurements, even every 10th of a second counts.

Really looking forward to the full reveal of the SVR trim. Some of the early renderings I've been seeing are pretty enticing, and I cant wait to see how the supercharged V8 stacks up against its rivals. I think the only model that could outperform it at the moment is the Levante Trofeo that Maserati recently unveiled.

Here's what the Range Rover Velar sounds like on track and it sounds proper sporty. Must be the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that's being used in other SVR models too.
