RANGE ROVER SPORT SVR WINS COVETED AUTOCAR STAR AWARD

Whitley, Coventry, 19 May 2015. The Range Rover Sport SVR has been awarded the coveted Autocar Star Award at the publication’s annual ceremony at the Hurlingham Club, London.

The Star Award is reserved for an elite set of cars that achieved an overall five-star rating in the Autocar’s in-depth road test over the preceding 12 months. The Range Rover Sport SVR was just one of only three cars to get a maximum five-star review in what is widely regarded as one of the most thorough examinations that any car can undergo.

John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations said: “Obtaining a full five-star verdict in Autocar is a fantastic achievement and one which we are extremely proud of. Receiving such an award from one of the most experienced road testing teams in the industry independently endorses the SVR’s outstanding dynamics, pace and overall capability.

“This award is made all the more special by the fact that the Range Rover Sport SVR is the very first product to emanate from the SVO division and it’s a fantastic achievement for the team.”

From the UK road test of the Range Rover Sport SVR, Autocar stated: “No rival better mixes handling prowess, off-road talent and an SUV sense of functional plushness. But more importantly, none comes close to capturing the perfect savagery and lewd sense of fun it keeps so amply on tap.”

The Range Rover Sport SVR represents the pinnacle of performance for Land Rover. Power comes from a 550hp 5.0-litre supercharged V8 and is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds and onto an electronically limited top speed of 162mph.

Complementing the performance-orientated Range Sport SVR, is the new Range Rover SVAutobiography – also produced by the Special Vehicle Operations division – and recently revealed at the New York Motor show as the ultimate expression of luxury, design specification and craftsmanship.

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
