JLR had a choice - get it certified and emasculated, or have no SVR. They've chosen to get it through, but at the cost of a now feeble, anaemic engine, producing probably real 400-450hp, and barely 400 lb.ft, i.e., pointless for a range-topping 'super SUV'.
They should have binned the car, and given deposits back, as 'the car', the promised SVR thing, could not be delivered.
In typical JLR fashion, they've not made a decision, and will hope the media wil cover for this pop gun of a car, when the opposition now have howitzers, producing real up to 700hp, for 5-600hp declared.
The Lambo Urus for instance is producing way over 700hp from a 4-litre V8, and the 4-litre V8 in the Merc GLC/GLC Coupe the best part of 600hp.
Not even JLR fanboys will want a £80-100k car that can be thrashed by 'cooking' versions of the competition, Merc's straight six AMG '53's for example, priced around £50-60k.
Speth failed to get BMW's V8 in 2013, and JLR is now suffering majorly, with this old, inadequate engine.
