Only a few years ago, the idea of a high-performance SUV was something to disparage. Today, however, there’s a veritable smorgasbord of hot SUVs aimed at wealthy driving enthusiasts with a kid or three. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged brings an intriguing combination of luxury and British class to the mix. A sonorous supercharged V-8 engine-offered in either standard 518-hp or 575-hp SVR trim-provides substantial forward thrust and brawny towing capacity, while a sport suspension helps this Land Rover maintain its composure through the twisties.
