Land Rover has confirmed two key facts for the upcoming performance flagship at the top of its Range Rover Sport line: a name, and a power figure.
First, the name: for lack of anything more concrete, the new model had been dubbed ‘RS’ in the media after test cars had first been spied.
Today, Land Rover has revealed that the new model will be known as the Range Rover Sport SVR.
And in fact, that SVR badge is expected to appear on just about every future Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations model in the future.
As for power, the RR Sport SVR will be driven by the same 5.0 litre supercharged V8 we’re all familiar with, this time pumping out 404kW.
Further details on the new model are still to come, although Land Rover’s latest teaser video promises: “This is everything that you'd expect from one of our cars”.
“Performance data for the SVR will extend the Range Rover Sport’s established capabilities as the fastest, most agile and most responsive Land Rover ever built,” the company said in a statement today.
Fans will get an early look at the new model - although camouflaged as it’s shown here - at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will be among the many cars tearing along the hill-climb event.
