Range Rover Sport SV vs SVR: V8 DRAG RACE

Does the new Range Rover Sport SV have what it takes to bring down the Range Rover Sport SVR?

Well, we’re about to find out as they face off over the quarter mile!

So let’s check out the stats. Starting with the new Range Rover Sport SV, it’s powered by a BMW 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine (the same engine from the M5 CS, no less!) that can produce 635hp and 750Nm. It sends this power to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and it weighs in at 2,500kg. If you want to pick one up today, it’ll cost you around £165,000.

Alongside it, we have the SVR. It’s packing a 5-litre supercharged V8 under the bonnet which can produce 575hp and 700Nm. It’s also equipped with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive, but it’s a bit lighter than the SV, tipping the scales at 2,310kg. When new, the SVR would set you back around £100,000.

So the new SV has more power, but it’s also heavier! Will the weight difference prove decisive? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
