Land Rover has set out to demonstrate the dynamic prowess of its new Range Rover Sport SVR in this video of the performance SUV being driven at the track—with its traction and stability control systems switched off.
Behind the wheel is Mike Cross, Land Rover’s chief engineer for vehicle integrity, and in the video he explains how the upgrades made to the vehicle help it handle, even when driven at the limit.
Those upgrades include a more powerful version of the Range Rover Sport’s available supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, a quicker shifting version of the vehicle’s eight-speed automatic, differentials and torque vectoring systems tuned for performance driving, and track-tuned suspension.
If you're interested, the Range Rover Sport SVR should be available in the U.S. early next year. It will have a price tag of $111,400, which includes a $925 destination charge.
