If you like your 4×4 to have a bit more oomph, then Land Rover might just have the answer with this, the 542bhp Range Rover SVR.

The SVR is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 meaning a sub five second 0-60mph time. As this footage of it testing at the Nurburgring hints, it’s not just under the bonnet that’s been given a tune up, as it gets a lower front bumper, and beefier body kit.

Prices haven't been confirmed, but don't expect much change from £100,000. The hot luxury 4×4 has been created by JLR’s new Special Vehicles Operations off-shoot, which like Mercedes’ AMG, BMW’s M and Audi’s RS wings will be responsible for bringing high performance models to the brand.

Rumours have it that next on the list is a hot new Evoque.
