Do not call it Velar SVR, because, in all simplicity, this most exclusive model of the range takes as a full name (inspiration) Land Rover Range Rover Velar SV Autobiography Dynamic Edition. What does not prevent it from shipping a good big V8 550 hp.
Created by JLR’s Special Vehicles department, this new Velar intends to impose a different vision from other badged SVR models. Whether it’s Jaguar or Land Rover for that matter. Because if he claims performance rather explosive for its size, it intends to fully preserve the comfort that is also the image of the range Range Rover. What must confirm the name of Autobiography. As the finish of the cabin, its leathers, its steering wheel despite the suggestive presence of aluminum pallets, or different wheels of specific settings.
On the outside, despite a more widely open shield, well-known exhausts and different sills (and doors), this Velar plays a certain discretion . Especially in this gray-blue launch tint. Its 21 or 22-inch wheels have no less impressive brakes of 395 and 396 mm (front/rear). It is necessary to stop this machine of 2160 kg (empty) able to reach 274 km / h or to go from 0 to 100 in 4,5 s.
Under the hood is the V8 5.0 supercharged with 405 kW / 550 hp and 680 Nm. It is associated with the automatic transmission ZF 8 reports, and of course, the all-wheel-drive specially set to return if necessary 100% of the torque to only the rear wheels. With a tank of 82 liters, it will still think of refueling regularly, with a registered consumption of 11.8 l / 100 km (270 g / km of CO2), but more in real use without a doubt.
