Range Rover achieves new race track time with the 550-HP SVR

Range Rover at Nürburgring could be a bizarre addition to the list where pole dancing is termed as exercise and ballparks allocate anti-peanut sections.  Last month the Range Rover Sport SVR was spied zipping around the race track and its lap time has been cleared at 8 minutes and 14 seconds. Well, if it\'s true, then this SUV is the quickest from the production line to achieve it at the Nordschleife loop of 12.9 miles. This is faster than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo by 20 seconds, at least till the Lamborghini Urus or the 12-cylinder Bentley joins the race in the coming years.

The time set by the 550hp Sport SVR is dramatically faster by 41 seconds that of the Land Rover 2010 Range Rover lap time. The Supercharged Range Rover was several hundred pounds heavier and was down by 40hp however. The SVR is an unlikely race course supercar compared to the sports versions which are road to roof multiple feet lower.

 

Ten years ago the Dodge Viper SRT10 Roadster in the same circuit finished just a second faster. The Aston Martin Vanquish original did the circuit three seconds lower so it is really an achievement and a formidable progress for the Range Rover Sport SVR.
