The Range Rover is all about a comfortable and luxurious ride while the Range Rover Sport as the name suggest adopts a sportier approach so it doesn't make a lot of sense seeing what could be a SVR-badged Range Rover long wheelbase. The Range Rover Sport SVR came out a couple of months ago with an uprated supercharged V8 5.0-liter engine packing 550 HP (405 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) and now it seems the Range Rover L will get the same treatment.

Land Rover is offering the 5.2-meter Range Rover long wheelbase in Vogue, Vogue SE, Autobiography and Autobiography Black trims and chances are these will be topped by a SVR version judging by this partially camouflaged prototype spotted near JLR's facility in Germany at the Nürburgring with four exhaust pipes. Aside from the additional power, the Range Rover SVR would also come with a few aerodynamic tweaks, a stiffer suspension, bigger brakes and other mechanical upgrades.

However, it might turn out to be something else as perhaps the engineers were just using the body of the Range Rover L to test what will likely be a high-performance powertrain.
