Powered by a robust supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that pumps out 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque to a full-time four-wheel drive system, this SUV is able to move in optimal on-road conditions from 0 to 100 km/h in a staggering 4.7 seconds. The unique all-terrain acceleration test utilized for this study proves that the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR can go fast in other driving conditions as well.
