Hello guys, how are you today. I am so excited about this new 2017 Range Rover Sport SVR. I just drive it and start to love this car. It so smooth but powerful. The design and shape also very cool. Okay in this post I will give you some sort review about The 2017 Range Rover Sport SVR.
A couple of years ago jaguar- land rover approached one Paul new-some to build special vehicles in a small shop by the alias SVO special vehicle operations and Paul new-some came from MClaren he was the technical chief over there and he was given ' Carte Blanche' he could gather who he wanted and go crazy on the JLR models we have such a special vehicle today the range rover sport SVR land rover talks about leading dynamics and although I find this car incredibly charming with all that noise I can't say it's extremely dynamic the BMW X 6M is the benchmark in that aspect and it can't match that easy as that but where it's a hundred times better is entertaining you!.
The Car PowerI can't remember really laughing in the X-6M what make this so different from a normal sport supercharged well, it has 550 HP so that's 40 HP extra it has an altered driving system which should mean it handles better which is not that noticable and the party piece is the exhaust it's insane! Really absurd I have a button here to open the exhaust and I can also put it in dynamic mode which makes it a bit more agile I'm not going so far as to call it agile but more agile in the same way a turtle is more agile than a whale but that exhaust! Really insane!.
It's attached to one of the sexiest engines you can get today an old fashioned V 8 because of the classic sound and feel it's gurgling and rattling things which BMW and audi V 8's don't do it's one of the last of the mohicans something they've done very well in some cars, this sound is always there but switch it to D, and dynamic off into auto mode. The exhaust valves are closed and you don't hear it anymore silky smooth a little gurgle now and then but that's it the gearbox is an 8-speed from ZF which the BMW X 6M also has I think it's a lot sharper in the BMW it's more comfortable in this but when you try to downshift while braking you can't feel the gears you don't feel it click - bam here's you're downshift which you do get in the X 6M when the new range rover sport was introduced and the press photo's came out. See the price here.
Body and DesignI was quite a fan of the old RR sport but I think this is a bit conservative it just doesn't excite me but I have to say with this SVR bodykit which means the fog lights are gone replaced for air intakes this engine needs a bit more cooling the rear is a bit more aggressive with that exhaust, diffuser and rear spoiler it looks a lot better than a normal sport and the interior hasn't been changed apart from a few SVR logos the steering wheel is the same for instance they could've gone for an alcantara one or maybe that would be too much they have taken the bucket seats from the jaguar XKR-S.

They are great apart from the fact that you can't adjust the sides I would like to have those tighter because it's a bit 'one size fits all' now they have changed the brakes as well or not really the brake discs but the brake lines and cooling which should prevent fading so they're just steal discs I would prefer ceramic brakes on a car this size but they work fine when you start pushing on B-roads though you feel that they could've been better but would you really push it on B-roads?
I don't think so as you might have noticed when it comes to raising the bar that's not something this car does for me, the X 6M is still the benchmark and this doesn't really get close but if you'd ask me which one I would buy I'd immediately go for this one because they understood how to build a very special SUV hence the name SVR they totally came through on that S part you get the feeling you're driving something extraordinary.
So let's hope they'll build more fun stuff I can imagine the big brother range rover with this engine with 600 HP and an exhaust like this I can see it, and I think it would sell until then, let's enjoy this well, until then. Until we have to bring it back to VDM cars our gratitude is huge as always and the next time we're there it'll probably be something crazy again just like this.
