What Does SVR Mean?: Explaining Land Rover And Jaguar Special Vehicles

Land Rover SVR

If you thought the quality of Land Rover and Jaguar cars was as good as it gets, then it’s time to think again. Both marques offer exclusive versions of their most popular models, redesigned and refined by their Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) divisions.

SVR versions of Land Rover and Jaguar cars take athletic style and performance to the highest levels. Wrapped in familiar bodies, you’ll find truly maximised functionality that combines supercharged engines with lightweight drive systems and standout looks. Like the SVO acronym, SVR stands for Special Vehicles - with the ‘R’ denoting the highest level of automotive quality and refinement.

Thrilling sports performance meets interior luxury in the Range Rover SVR by Land Rover. It’s designed to be electrifying on the road - in every way you can imagine.

The ‘R’ in Land Rover SVR signifies the peak potential of its Range Rover family, and fans of the brand can tell what makes the Range Rover SVR unique: front and side vents increase airflow and look at home alongside the familiar shape of the Range Rover Sport, while 22-inch alloy wheels befit the SVR’s powerful potential. 

What really matters is under the bonnet, where the Range Rover SVR is set apart from the rest of the Land Rover collection: a ferocious 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, which means 567bhp and 700Nm of torque. The cabin is as luxurious as you’d expect from a Range Rover, the SVO team have tweaked damping and stability to make handling the pure power of the SVR a pleasure. The SVR is joined by the Land Rover SVAutobiogaphy collection which - like the Land Rover SVR - demonstrate true handmade craftsmanship in style, finish and performance.

Motorsport spirit comes as standard in all Jaguar cars, but SVO vehicles like the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR take this racing lineage to the extreme.

Light, sharp and fast, the F-TYPE SVR is the fastest of its family to date, with a top speed of 200mph. Its supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine packs an additional 25bhp and 15lb of torque compared to the standard Jaguar F-TYPE, using a four-wheel drive system to let it blast from 0-60mph in under 3.5 seconds.

Fast and flighty, the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is made from lightweight materials and optimised throughout - including ceramic brakes, titanium exhaust and redesigned suspension - to make it as lean as possible. The SVO innovation keeps the F-TYPE SVR glued to the road and drift-free around corners, so you’re able to make the most of that top speed. The F-TYPE SVR somes in Convertible and Coupé versions, joined by the performance-centred SUV practicality of the F-PACE SVR.
