It's the group's go to performance engine - the supercharged, 5.0-liter V8, packing in this installment no less than 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque (625 Nm). The formidable setup puts the vehicle at the level of the company's top of the line offerings.

In terms of performance stats, the E-type Zero can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 5.5 seconds, which is faster than the original Series 1 E-Type, though the top speed has not yet been confirmed.

The 2019 Land Rover Discovery SVX comes with a recalibrated 8-speed sport automatic transmission and has traded the rotary shift dial found in standard Discovery vehicles for a new Pistol Shifter design. Naturally, the regular Discovery isn't getting this powerplant - so the SVX is both the most capable Disco and at the same time the most powerful.

The auto also gets special calibration for its eight-speed automatic transmission, and optimized Terrain Response 2 system, as well as a model-first pistol-grip shifter in place of the regular Discovery's rotary knob.

Land Rover has also dumped the circular gear selector in favour of a "pistol shift" style one, which is said to be able to select gears more quickly in hard off-road scenarios.

All-New Discovery SVX has improved approach, departure and breakover angles, achieved by raising both the lightweight aluminium monocoque architecture and the four-corner air suspension system, employing long-travel dampers and revised knuckles, and fitting larger 815mm diameter 275/55 R20 Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tyres on forged aluminium alloy wheels.

Aimed at off-road enthusiasts seeking epic adventures, Discovery SVX will be the first Land Rover assembled by hand at the SVO Technical Centre when production begins in 2018. Land Rover has developed something called Hydraulic Active Roll Control (H-ARC), which is said to improve wheel articulation, enhance body control, boost off-road traction while sharpening on-road manners.

However, the Chinese market has shown that it does not necessarily perceive the suspension as a threat. Many analysts expected the release of WSJ's report to slow down the momentum of bitcoin even further.
