We've been patiently watching the development of an all-new Land Rover Range Rover product.
For what feels like an eternity we've seen plenty of spy shots and video of the now named Range Rover Sport SVR.
Set to come out of the company's all-new Special Operations group, the SVR is looking to be something remarkable. If you ask me, between this and the Project 7, the spec ops division is really setting the benchmark high when it goes to repeat itself.
That's because this Range Rover is said to be the most powerful and fastest Land Rover ever. And if you've driven the company's 500 horsepower plus supercharged models you already know they're quick.
At this stage, the Jaguar Land Rover is calling this vehicle a prototype; however, I don't think it will be too far from the real deal. That's because from what it sounds like it will be equipped with all production-ready equipment. Essentially, it's a development car that will run the hill.

Land Rover's press release follows:
High Performance Range Rover Sport SVR Prototype Set To Storm The Goodwood Hill
- First appearance of the new high performance SVR designation for future high-performance Land Rover and Jaguar models created by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations
- 550PS Range Rover Sport SVR prototype will complete the hill course at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June
- New film takes a look behind-the-scenes
- 500,000 Range Rover Sport vehicles have been produced since Land Rover redefined the performance SUV sector in 2005
The fastest and most powerful ever production Land Rover will make its public debut at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed (27 to 29 June). The Range Rover Sport SVR will be the first model to wear the new SVR designation, which will be worn by all future high performance models.
A camouflaged prototype of the 550PS Range Rover Sport SVR will take a break from its demanding development schedule to give spectators a chance to experience the sights and sounds of the most exhilarating Land Rover ever produced. It will perform a series of runs up the famous Goodwood Hill course in the 'First Glance' category.
The SVR is currently undergoing development prior to going on sale in 2015. Details of the vehicle's 550PS powertrain are still under wraps, but crowds can expect a thrilling soundtrack to match its impressive pace. Performance data for the SVR will extend the Range Rover Sport's established capabilities as the fastest, most agile and most responsive Land Rover ever built.
The Range Rover Sport SVR has been created by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team and all future SVR models will need to meet stringent key performance criteria in order to wear the SVR badge. They will be built alongside existing models and sold through the Land Rover dealer network in the usual way.
Range Rover Sport SVR - designed, engineered and built in Britain - amplifies the engineering integrity, robustness and attention to detail that are hallmarks of today's Land Rover brand.
Land Rover redefined the performance SUV sector with the launch of the original Range Rover Sport in 2005, successfully combining sports performance with uncompromised all-terrain capabilities. This is reflected in the current tally of 500,000 vehicles produced.
