The Range Rover Sport SVR has been engineered to deliver the incredible breadth of capability for which Land Rover is famous. The SVR is fitted with permanent four-wheel drive and a two-speed transfer case, with a low-range option for demanding terrain, and a 50/50 percent torque split front-to-rear.
Despite this performance focus, there is no impact on the Range Rover Sport’s class-leading refinement: the ZF 8-speed transmission’s torque converter ensures ultimate refinement in first gear, but is bypassed by a locking clutch from second gear. This creates a direct link between the transmission and the driven wheels, and a more urgent sense of engagement for the driver.

The bold exterior design and luxurious interior of Land Rover’s premium sports SUV have been enhanced for the Range Rover Sport SVR with an extensive range of dynamic improvements.
To ensure the Range Rover Sport SVR doesn’t suffer any loss of stability, the throttle is automatically blipped during high-speed downshifts, smoothing the transition between ratios. This function also allows the transmission to perform a series of rapid downshifts under hard braking with maximum refinement and control.
