Land Rover introduces its fastest, most powerful, most dynamically focused Land Rover ever meaning this Special Vehicle Operations-line SUV can do things sports cars 20 years ago couldn’t dream of doing. The Range Rover Sport SVR comes with six terrain-response modes that can be manually set or automatically engaged – General, Dynamic, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, Sand, & Rock Crawl. Its display shows everything from wheel angles to car balance & which differential is lock, while its 10.7 inches of ground clearance and 33.5 inches of wading depth gives you ample range to take this Rover deep into the mountains in luxury & style without worrying about not being able to bring it back to the burbs.
The SUV runs 0 to 45mph in 4.5 seconds while topping out at 162mph with its 550hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. For conventional cruising, the auto is quiet with casual steering stiffness & reasonable shifts, while in dynamic mode, the shift times are reduced 50% from Sport models being shorter, more visceral & audibly crisper. The more aggressive you drive, the more responsive the auto becomes – dropping gears to ensure acceleration while holding RPMs to ensure satisfaction. This thing locks, dials, & autocorrects with its Active-Roll Control and Dynamic Stability Control. Its interior – classic Range Rover appeal with a twist, carrying oxford leather bucket sport seats in the front and rear. Scout Life. $111,470
