Land Rover recently unveiled the new-generation Range Rover , but we haven’t heard anything about the more powerful Range Rover Sport . Well, the model is now back into the picture, as our spy photographers managed to catch it during its cold-weather testing in the Arctic Circle.
To help you differentiate it from the standard Range Rover, Land Rover made the Sport version slightly wider and lower, with a more sloped roofline.
Under the hood, Land Rover will borrow its engine lineup from Jaguar, meaning we will see a choice of both diesel and gasoline engines, with the 510-horsepower supercharged V-8 engine from the Jaguar XK-R at the top of the lineup. Land Rover also announced it will use lots of aluminum in the Range Rover Sport’s construction, making it a lot lighter than the current version.
Expect the new Land Rover Range Rover Sport to be unveiled in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show.Land Rover Range Rover Sport
