    The hottest version of the new Range Rover Sport will make its debut on May 31 as "the fastest, most dynamic and technologically advanced" version of the sports SUV yet. Expected to nudge power output past the 575hp of its predecessor, the next range-topper will be called the Range Rover Sport SV – dropping the 'R' suffix of the previous car.

    1. Range Rover Sport SV to use uprated 4.4-litre V8 engine
    2. To rival the likes of Lamborghini Urus and Aston Martin DBX 707

    Range Rover Sport SV: what to expect?

    The SV is set to use a highly tuned version of the Range Rover's BMW-derived 4.4-litre V8, as featured in the standard Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, pushing up power and torque enough to rival the Lamborghini Urus and Aston Martin DBX 707 for super-SUV supremacy.

    The Range Rover Sport SV will be one of Land Rover's final new combustion cars; earlier last week Jaguar Land Rover, now rebranded as JLR, gave a wide-reaching update on the progress of its Reimagine transformation plan, which will see an electric Range Rover arrive next year, before the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Evoque and Velar go electric from 2025.

    The new Sport SV will be the halo model for the new-look Range Rover brand – one of JLR's four newly constituted model families – when it's launched, roughly a year after the standard car.

    Further details will emerge as the launch date approaches, but it's already been confirmed the new car will be a "highly limited" proposition, offered by invitation only – and will pioneer a number of 'world-first' technologies to reach new performance heights.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.

    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
