Last week, Autobytel's Benjamin Hunting tried to tame Range Rover's hottest SUV while in New York.
The 2016 Range Rover Sport SVR marks a couple of firsts for the brand. Its the first product in Land Rover's new SVR performance lineup, as well as one of the first Land Rover vehicles to come out of the automaker's Special Vehicle Division. Power comes from a retuned version of the Range Rover's supercharged 5.0L V8, producing 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and specially-tuned four-wheel drive system with torque vectoring.
The Range Rover Sport SVR competes with the BMW X5 M and Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
