Now that winter is coming and the snow will be common in some localities, the british brand has wanted to take it to the extreme. Have been moved to the lake Udjaur, in Sweden, a place close to the Arctic Circle to make a test very special.
There have led to your SUV faster and more powerful, the Range Rover Sport SVR.

To obtain a greater control with the system Terrain Response 2, which ensures an optimum grip in any situation thanks to the system of traction to the four wheels by a transfer case two-speed.
With such a system the torque will be divided in equal parts between both axles, although depending on the situation, you can send up to 100% of par the front axle or to the rear automatically. It also features a rear differential with active blocking dynamic. All of this technology, serving the last year to be the fastest vehicle of its class in the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Although on the ‘Silverstone ice’ will not be able to squeeze out all its potential, the Range Rover Sport SVR is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds and reach a maximum speed electronically limited to 260 km/h.
