2023 Land Rover Defender SVR What We Know So Far

2023 Land Rover Defender SVR – These rumors aren’t completely bogus, as the British and German companies were once close friends. BMW purchased the Rover Group in 1994 and spent much money on the development of the third-generation Range Rover. The group was then destroyed in 2000 by billions of euro losses.

Engine

Motor Trend is bringing back an old rumor in these circumstances. According to the cited publication, the 2023 Land Rover Defender SVR will be equipped with a twin-turbo V8 motor. This engine is most likely the S63 of the M5. The S68 is another possibility, and it’s supposed to be an evolution from the S63. But can you spot the elephant?

Yes. At the time of writing, there is no photographic evidence of Defender SVR. Not even one spy shot. Land Rover has an older V8 engine in the form of a supercharged, 5.0-liter engine. This is a powerplant that often plays second fiddle with the S63.

Every Land Rover vehicle, including the Defender, will be either electric or equipped with a BEV option by 2030. The BMW-powered Defender SVR seems like a wild dream.
