2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR The Range Rover SVR is the fastest and most agile SUV Land Rover has ever built. Based on the regular-production Range Rover Sport, the SVR model was tuned by Land Rover's Special Vehicles Operations division and honed on Germany's famed Nurburgring track. Power for the Range Rover SVR comes from an evolution of the Jaguar XJR's supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that has been tuned to generate 550 horsepower at 6,000 rpms and 502 lb-ft. of torque from 2,500 rpms to 5,500 rpms. The V8 sends all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission controlled by either shift paddles mounted behind the steering wheel or by using the gear lever. In Dynamic mode, the automatic gearbox's shift times have been reduced by about 50 percent compared to a standard Range Rover Sport Supercharged. The blown V8 sends the 5,148-pound SVR from zero to 60 mph in a sports car-like 4.5 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 162 mph. Helped by a standard start/stop system, fuel economy checks in at 14 mpg in the city, 19 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg in a combined cycle, figures that are on part with the standard V8-powered Range Rover Sport. The engine upgrades are complemented by a thoroughly revised cross-linked air suspension setup with continuously variable shock absorbers. A variable-ratio, speed-sensitive electric power steering system helps the driver make the most of the V8's power. Although it is designed primarily for the track, the SVR retains the legendary off-road capacity that has been associated with the Land Rover name for decades. The air suspension setup can be programmed to offer a generous 9.3 inches of ground clearance, while the SVR boasts 10.2 inches of wheel travel up front and 10.7 inches of travel out back. A two-speed transfer case helps the behemoth get over even the roughest terrain. The SVR comes with an updated version of Land Rover's Terrain Response system, which optimizes the SUV for a variety of different off-roading and inclement weather situations. Looking the Part The SVR looks noticeably more aggressive than a standard Range Rover Sport. Up front, it gains a deep bumper with large air intakes used to channel air to two intercoolers, a new radiator grille and vents integrated into the fenders. Deep side skirts continue the look, while the rear end is fitted with a trunk-mounted spoiler and a new bumper that features quad exhaust pipes as well as a built-in air diffuser. SVR-specific 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped by all-season Continental tires round out the major exterior updates. Life Aboard The track-inspired treatment continues inside, where the SVR offers space for up to four passengers on bucket seats upholstered in plush Oxford leather. Fitted with a power-recline function, the rear bench can occasionally accommodate a fifth passenger on short trips or it can fold flat into the floor in order to clear up 62.2 cubic feet of cargo space. Brushed aluminum trim adds a premium touch to the cabin, though buyers can order real carbon fiber trim at an extra cost. The traditional analog instrument cluster has been replaced by a digital unit made up of a 12.3-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) screen that is fully configurable. The center stack features an eight-inch high-resolution color touch screen that groups the 'ute's entertainment, connectivity and navigation functions into a single easy-to-use bundle that includes Bluetooth connectivity and a voice command function. The infotainment system can also be controlled by buttons and knobs. The SVR can be ordered with Jaguar - Land Rover's InControl Apps, a smartphone integration software designed to work seamlessly with both Apple and Android devices. Passengers can access the bulk of their phone's features on the touch screen and use additional purpose-designed apps to book a hotel room, get parking information, check traffic and make conference calls. Standard Equipment The Range Rover SVR comes standard with Oxford leather upholstery available in four colors, a leather-upholstered steering wheel, pedals made out of stainless steel, premium floor mats, 14-way adjustable front seats, heated seats front and back, a sliding panoramic sunroof, a heated windshield, an 825-watt Meridian sound system with 19 speakers, adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, a surround camera system and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. Occupant Safety The Range Rover Sport SVR comes standard with side, seat-front, thorax and pelvis airbags for both front passengers. The Sport also comes with a host of electronic driving aids including Electronic Traction Control, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Emergency Brake Assist, Cornering Brake Control, Hill Descent Control, a Blind Spot Monitoring system and Roll Stability Control.

Time for a splash with MsShmee at the Land Rover Experience Center in Carmel, California. As we head up the coast from LA in the Jaguar F-Type we stop by the center for an experience both with the off-road facilities that are on offer and on road towards Big Sur in the Range Rover Sport Supercharged with a 510hp V8 under the hood. If you're in the area, I thoroughly recommend a visit to the center at Quail Lodge, more at: http://www.quaillodge.com/activities/land-rover-driving-school An extended thanks to both Lynnea and Mark, we both hugely enjoyed the day and came away very impressed with the capabilities of the car.

Jaguar Land Rover has revealed some of the prototype technologies that its UK-based research team are developing to deliver autonomous driving in the future. A Remote Control Range Rover Sport research vehicle demonstrates how a driver could drive the vehicle from outside the car via their smartphone. The smartphone app includes control of steering, accelerator and brakes as well as changing from high and low range. This would allow the driver to walk alongside the car, at a maximum speed of 4mph, to manoeuvre their car out of challenging situations safely, or even to negotiate difficult off-road terrain. The driver could use the smartphone to reverse the car out of a parking space if someone has parked too close for them to open the door, or allow the driver to become their own off-road spotter, to guide the car over off-road obstacles from outside the vehicle. By walking alongside the car, the driver could continually check ramp, approach and departure angles and allow precise positioning of the vehicle when rock crawling. It could also be an invaluable aid when the vehicle is fording a stream or traversing sections made slippery by mud or snow. The remote control function will only operate if the user is within 10 metres of the car and if the smart key can be detected. The system will stop the vehicle if the driver moves out of range or gets too close. Future possibilities for this technology could include more autonomous functionality where the driver gives a simple command from the handset to traverse an obstacle or exit a parking space, and the car does the rest. Multi-Point Turn Car: Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘Multi-Point Turn’ Range Rover is capable of autonomously manoeuvring through 180 degrees to turn the car in the road and point the car in the opposite direction. This autonomous vehicle could extricate itself from the most difficult situations, such as a dead-end roads or congested car parks, as well as performing many drivers’ least favourite manoeuvre – the three-point turn in a busy street or car park. The system uses sensors to assess available space and to avoid pedestrians, vehicles and other objects. The system takes over gear selection, steering, braking and acceleration to make as many forward and backwards movements as necessary to achieve the manoeuvre. The research team is working on a system to scan the environment around the car and inform the driver whether it is safe to perform the turning manoeuvre. The driver then confirms the manoeuvre and the car would move forward until its path is blocked. It then selects reverse and uses the steering, throttle and brakes to do the same again. It repeats this as many times as required until it is facing in the opposite direction. If you love cars, you should subscribe now to YouCar's channel: http://urlz.fr/lEd Go ahead, it's free!
