The guys and girls from SVO are used to going fast on road with cars like the F-Type Project 7 and the XE SV Project 8, but with the latest model shown off at the Frankfurt motor show they are treading onto the dirty stuff.
The new Discovery SVX is touted as the ultimate Land Rover featuring a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine producing 525 horsepower and 625Nm of torque. The company says is boasts more ground clearance, a lifted body and suspension, greater wheel articulation, larger all-terrain tyres, and a chassis tuned to handle these changes off-road.
To further distinguish it from lesser models, the Discovery SVX also rides with Hydraulic Active Roll Control and comes with Goodyear Wrangler rubber. With an active centre and rear locking differentials it’s safe to assume it’ll go just about anywhere - there’s additionally an eight-speed Automatic Transmission with twin-speed transfer box, hill descent control, and a pistol -grip style shifter instead of the rotary knob found in standard Discoveries.
Visually, it stands out with lots of orange accents and features like a sump guard and anti-glare finishes.
