Land Rover Speeding Ahead to Goodwood

There is a new Special Vehicle Operations team at Jaguar Land Rover which focuses on high performance models. As a result, Range Rover engineers have been hard at work to produce the fastest ever Range Rover Sport. A prototype is to be tested on the legendary hill at Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, allowing people to hear the thunder under the bonnet of the 542bhp 5.0 litre Supercharged V8 engine. Performance figures suggest the new SRV model will accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds; improving on the current 5.3 second sprint time. The prototypes camouflaged exterior disguises the significant alterations to the appearance, including a lower front bumper with more prominent side sills. In addition to this, firmer suspension, torque vectoring and active body control to limit roll will also be incorporated. The new Range Rover will be sold through Land Rover showrooms and it is to be manufactured alongside the standard model. The price is anticipated to be just below £100,000 and you can expect the model to be in showrooms before the end of the year. Next on the agenda, the Special Vehicle Operations team plan to begin working on a new Evoque with a 2.0 litre turbo engine producing 300bhp.
