Spy Shots: Land Rover Trots Around the Range Rover Sport RS

When is a spy shot not really a spy shot? It seems when it’s a shot of the new Range Rover Sport RS , Range Rover is embracing the world of spy photography to try and promote its new range-topping SUV . The RS seen here is wrapped in a special camouflage that is actually pictures of Range Rovers tackling various terrain around the world.

The actual RS model is an upgraded version of the all-new Range Rover Sport that has the supercharged, 5.0-liter V-8 from Jaguar under the hood. That means 550 horsepower and 500, or so, pound-feet of torque.

If you needed some signs to prove that this is a true high-performance Rover, take on look at the huge wheels, massive brakes and quad exhaust tips.

To provide the necessary cooling to that big V-8, you will notice much larger intakes in the revised front end.

Land Rover isn’t hiding much from prying eyes with this machine, but considering this is little more than a beefed up version of the new Range Rover it doesn’t have much to hide.

If you are in the market for a super-fast SUV, and you don’t want a Porsche crest or BMW roundel on the hood, Land Rover should soon have you covered.

There are very few things appearance-wise that are changing for the RS model Range Rover Sport. The whole chassis will sit slightly lower and make use of a tauter suspension setup, but not so much as to kill the off-road capability of the machine.

The most notable additions are the huge brakes, and massive intakes in the nose. Out back the only real noticeable change is the integrated exhaust outlets.

Look for the new Range Rover Sport RS to make its debut before the end of the year.
