Wonder how much power money can buy? Well, Rs 2 crore and above should be worth about 575PS of power and 700Nm of torque. That’s what the supercharged V8 under the carbon fibre bonnet of the 2018 Range Rover Sport SVR develops, and now you can officially book one from any of the 27 Land Rover dealerships in the country. If you like showing off the luxuries you enjoy more than the power you weild, Land Rover is also accepting bookings for the more opulent Range Rover SVAutobiography.
Land Rover has not announced the booking amount or the prices of both the SUVs. Contact your nearest dealership for the full lowdown.
We’ve driven the Range Rover Sport SVR and here’s what Kartikeya had to say about it - “The SVR make for the ideal supercar for India. It can seat five, and can take a clobbering. It can off-road, and how.” Read the full review here.
We’ve also driven the 2018 Range Rover, albeit in its P400e plug-in hybrid form. You can check out the video review below.
