Range Rover Sport SVR All Terrain 0-100 km/h Test: Video
We still haven’t yet found out why did Land Rover actually created such a wild production SUV in the form of the Range Rover Sport SVR. I mean SUV’s are built to take on the rough terrains which are not accessible by any other usual four wheeled vehicles and they actually don’t have to be fast only tough enough to take on roads or no roads. But the Range Rover Sport SVR proved us all wrong. This wild beast can not only handle bad terrains but actually can give nightmares to many sportscars with its incredibly fast acceleration.
Just imagine with all the 550 Hp of peak power this heavy SUV can accelerate from 0-100 km/h mark in just 4.7 seconds that is almost equal to the time that the Porsche Cayman 718 takes to reach the three digit speeds. Since its introducing back in 2015 the RR SVR has been setting records. Recently Land Rover tested their wild SUV’s acceleration capability in 6 completely different terrains.
The Range Rovers first test was to take on the Europe’s fastest racing circuit, Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby, UK. The second test was performed on a much tougher wet grass surface. The third test was performed on gravel surface. The fourth test was performed on Mud and Ruts. The last two terrain tests were performed on Pendine Sands at Carmarthen Bay in South Wales while the final test was not actually dependent on speed but something little different which tested the SUV’s Rock crawl mode.
