Land Rover let it slip that their upcoming Range Rover Sport SVR lapped the Nurburgring in 8 minutes and 14 seconds. You may remember that last month the hotter Range Rover was spotted testing on the 'Ring and Land Rover certainly appeared serious about performance. Well, they are very serious as the 8 minute and 14 second laptime makes the Rover Rover Sport SVR the quickest production SUV to ever lap the Nurburgring.

The 8 minute and 14 second time beats the rumored Macan Turbo 8 minute and 15 second laptime. It also puts it ahead of the BMW 1M, first generation Honda NSX, and a second off the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

Absolutely incredible performance from the SUV. Well done Land Rover!
