Excellent Montpellier 👍👍

Mine is due early august cannot wait - replaces a P300 that I’ve had for 6 months

Sadly had too many defenders over the years always wanted another V8 might just have to find how to release the beast 😊 as believe very understated noise wise will please the wife though 😉

Be interested in your MPG the P300 only did early 20’s ! So thought the V8 cannot be too much worse - a fried had an old SVR & averaged 18 so hope around that figure 🤞🤞 2020 P300 HSE

That rather sums it up. The project started out far more extreme, got pulled back in, and is rather subdued.

Car Magazine
Because Land Rover has effectively had to choke the engine as best it can maintain the very latest emissions standards, allowing the engine to continue service until 2027. Petrol particulate filters muffle the noise, so Land Rover has added some gentle digital replication of the noise in the cabin and, to compensate, has figured out trick ways to amplify the whine of the supercharger. That dinky exhaust, too, is designed not to affect the Defender's innate prowess offroad by compromising the departure angle

Can't JLR hand over these 'special' vehicles to Bowler so they dont have to comply with all the engine regs? James

I think a few are missing the point of the V8. It isn’t an SVR product and it doesn’t pretend to be. It’s a Defender V8.

The 80’s Defender V8 didn’t have bonnet scoops, a massive exhaust and bucket seats did it? It was just a very refined motor with a good bit more punch than the standard models. I think they’ve nailed the ethos of the original with the new one.

Missed what point ? LR said the target for this car was the G63. They said that , it came from them.

The car is so far from the ethos of the original V8 as it could be , as is the Defender itself.

Do we think JLR will build another step up for the V8 with a SVR or SVX badge

Apparently, coming later...

Future Cars: 2023 Land Rover Defender SVR Brings the Heat With a 600+HP V-8


Click image to enlarge

"the forthcoming SVR will build on the Defender V8 (seen below and in gallery) with more horsepower, sportier design elements, and unique suspension tuning to deliver the ultimate street version. Both the 110 and 90 versions will still kick ass off-road, of course, but think of the SVR as the Mercedes-AMG G63 to the regular Defender V-8's Mercedes-Benz G550."

" This will be the first sporty Defender in history, and maintaining interest in its excellent 4x4 by pumping out more—and more profitable—variants will ensure cash flow as Jaguar Land Rover transitions to an all-electric future sometime in the next decade or two. Additionally, its engine should preview the upcoming top-spec Range Rover powertrain."

" we hear it'll pack a different engine than the non-SVR V8. That model uses Land Rover's long-serving 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 to stump up 518 hp, but the SVR just may raid the BMW bin and leverage the Bavarians' 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 for 600-plus horses (it makes 617 hp in the BMW M5 Competition), a meaningful bump up from the regular V-8. Both BMW and JLR use ZF's eight-speed automatic transmission, which should make overall powertrain calibration easier, and BMW's more modern engine will help JLR pass ever-stricter global emissions regulations."

" ESTIMATED PRICE: It's likely you'll need to cough up $125,000 to get into the basic Defender 90 SVR. Think $130K for the 110, and options and accessories will push the stickers up from there. (Land Rover also plans an even longer Defender 130, but it's not clear if that will get the SVR treatment.) Think the SVR is expensive? It will still represent a roughly $30,000 discount on a G63.

EXPECTED ON-SALE DATE: Spring 2022"

BMW 4.4 V8? No one wants this. Its one of the most defective V8 in the world. My P525 is on the way.... hopefully this V8 will much more reliable than BMW...
