Range Rover is now cooking up high-performance Velar SVR

Range Rover is now cooking up high-performance Velar SVR

Although it’s yet to hit the roads, the Range Rover Velar has been officially presented. What’s more, this new member of the Range Rover family will soon be getting a more potent sibling in the form of the Velar SVR.

A prototype of the Velar SVR was recently spotted testing at and around the Nurburgring race track. Like its Range Rover and Range Rover Sport stable mates, the Velar will receive massive aerodynamic tweaks and, of course, the 5-litre V8 with around 550bhp and 680Nm.

Coming back to the standard car, the origin of the Velar name (pronounced vel-ar) dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the 1960s. When development engineers needed to hide the true identity of the 26 pre-production Range Rovers, they chose the name Velar. When launched, this new offering would be positioned as the bigger sibling of the Evoque, which is currently the most stylish premium crossover in the market. The former, then, will offer more of the same, albeit, in a more luxurious package.
