The 2024 Range Rover Sport SVR With The Rumored BMW-Sourced V-8 Spotted Testing In Dubai
It will get the same engine as the BMW X5 M Competitionby Alina Moore, on
We are less than a month away from the official debut of the new Range Rover Sport, and while the engineers are busy preparing for the launch, a prototype of the next Range Rover Sport SVR was caught testing in Dubai!
The new prototype has dropped some more camouflage, especially up front, but we also get a better look at the squared-off quad exhaust pipes.
The third-generation Range Rover Sport is said to be more of an evolution than a revolution - which shouldn’t surprise you since this is the best-selling Land Rover model.
Just like the base Range Rover, the Sport version will also be built on the new MLA-Flex platform. Also, the current 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 is expected to be replaced by a more powerful BMW-sourced 4.4-liter V-8 engine. In the SVR version, this new engine is supposed to deliver as much as 600 horsepower - which should be just 25 horsepower over the current generation. Of course, since this engine is already delivering 625 horsepower in the X5 M Competition you shouldn’t be surprised if the SVR will end up with more power under the hood.
The new Range Rover Sport SVR version is rumored to debut a few months after the standard Sport version arrives.
