Another Friday, another cool tuning package offered by the guys over at Kahn Design. Their latest RangeRover package drapes the SUV’s body with Santorini black metallic paint combined with Vesuvius orange accents, including but not limited to the roof and a thick stripe on the hood. It also throws in an aerodynamic package and new interior modifications.

The aerodynamic package includes a lower front bumper lip extension, an RS front grille with 3D mesh, a grille insert in Vesuvius orange, exhaust side vents in matte pearl grey and body color, and Kahn enamel wing shields. Additional features include brake calipers finished in Vesuvius orange, RS vented front wheel arches with integrated front air dams, front wheel arch LED light strips, and door handles in matte grey. Then there’s the aforementioned painted floating roof and bonnet stripe.

For the interior, the tuner added RS Vesuvius style diamond quilted and perforated black leather with a Vesuvius orange trim. The package also includes vented food pedals in machined aluminum and a Kahn Vesuvius speedometer, as well as a new clock bezel surround finished with Swarovski diamonds, door panel tops in quilted and perforated leather with orange stitching, and plenty of carbon fiber.

The package is offered with a 3.0 SDV6 engine that delivers a total of 256 HP at 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 442 lbs-ft at 2,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a new ZF 8HP70, eight-speed automatic gearbox and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.4 seconds.

The Range Rover Evoque has been stealing the show for the past year or so, but come 2013, the new Landrover Range Rover will be back in the saddle showing off its svelte aluminum body while still maintaining its offroad capabilities.

As promised, the new generation Range Rover is lighter, stronger, and more refined. Land Rover mostly focused on reducing the SUV’s total weight, and thanks to a revolutionary all-aluminum monocoque body structure combined with weight savings throughout the chassis and driveline, the new Range Rover is now 350 kilos (771 lbs) lighter than the outgoing model.

The new Range Rover will be offered with a choice of two diesel engines, plus a V8 supercharged with 510 HP. However, a diesel hybrid will join the line-up later in 2013.

The fourth generation Land Rover Range Rover will go on sale at the end of 2012. On the British market, prices will start from £71,295, or about $114,000 at the current exchange rates.

UPDATE 10/02/2012: Land Rover USA has announced prices for the new Range Rover unveiled in Paris. On the US market, the standard LR4 will be priced at $49,950 and the LR4 HSE at $54,175. Price includes $850 destination and delivery.

More on the 2013 Landrover Range Rover after the jump.

Famed UK tuner Kahn Design has a new program for the Range Rover and for this one, they’re getting some assistance from a reliable friend: engine tuner Cosworth.

So yeah, there’s more than just cosmetic changes on this new Kahn-tuned bad boy.

Comprising of an exclusive body package that includes a Kahn Copper Metallic finish, Kahn’s magic touch was evident from the get-go. Among the added components are a number of parts finished in the RangeRover’s body color, including the rear diffuser, the RS front grille surround insert, door handles, and door mirrors. From there, Kahn installed an RS extended large upper roof wing, an RS front grille with a 3D mesh, an RS quad oval exhaust system, RS vented front and rear wheel arches with integrated front air dams, and RS vented rear, brake calipers finished in copper. Finishing off the exterior modifications are LED daytime running lights on the front wheel arches, a privacy tinted glass, Kahn enamel wing shields, and a new set of 22" satin black RS wheels with orange pin striping.

Moving to the interior, Kahn Design really went full throttle in putting a luxurious touch on the SUV. The diamond quilted center glove box is the first indication that the interior has been poshly dressed up. The center console has been finished in carbon fiber, while the clock bezel surround has been finished in Swarovski Diamonds. From there, the vented foot pedals have been machined in aluminum while the front and rear seats have been quilted and perforated in ivory leather with contrasting stitching. Meanwhile, the floor mats have been finished in black charcoal and the interior facia trim has a 3D Carbon finish. Kahn illuminated door entry sill plates in stainless steel round out the package, as does the Kahn orange rev counter, speedo, time clock, and fascia inserts.

Under the hood, Cosworth picked up the paces with a performance upgrade of the SUV’s 5.0-liter supercharged engine, increasing it from 500 horsepower to 555 horsepower and 600 lb/ft of torque and subsequently, improving its 0-60 mph time to just 4.5 seconds.

While the automotive world is now focused on the new generation Range Rover , the guys over at Kahn Design have unveiled yet another tuning package for the previous generation . The package is called the LE Edition and features a seductive mix of triple pearl white livery and invigorating performance.

The exterior package starts off with a front lower lip spoiler, a front bumper A-frame in matte pearl grey, front wheel arch led strips, a carbon RS front grille surround insert, an RS front grille with 3D mesh, and RS vented front wheel arches with integrated front and rear air dams. The passengers’ intimacy will be ensured by anti-reflective privacy tinted glass, while a carbon fiber trim will add a touch of aggression to the Range Rover . The tuner also added a new quad oval exhaust system, along with a new set of 22" Kahn RS 600 wheels finished in matte grey for a more powerful stance.

For the interior, the tuner has added perforated leather with carbon inserts and contrast silver stitch, a clock bezel surround finished with Swarovski diamonds, a diamond gear selector, speedo & rev counter fascia in silver, and vented foot pedals in machined aluminum.

Land Rover only recently unveiled the official details on the new-generation Range Rover , but that doesn’t mean their work with the Range Rover is done. As these spy shots reveal, the company is also working on a LWB (long wheel-base) version of the luxury SUV that will be unveiled sometime in 2013.

The Range Rover LWB was specially developed for markets like Russia and China where they associate extra leg room with extreme luxury. For this reason, the upcoming Range Rover LWB will offer more space in the backseat - a perfect addition for those looking for extra space for the kids or for those who just like to relax in the backseat while the driver takes them to the opera.

As for the engine lineup, we expect to see the same choices as in the standard model: a choice of two diesel engines and one gasoline engine. The diesel lineup will include a 3.0-liter TDV6 delivering 258 horsepower and 4.4-liter SDV8 with 339 horsepower. The gas engine will be a supercharged LR-V8 with 510 horsepower.

Earlier today, we caught wind of a couple of leaked images for the 2013 Landrover RangeRover , but now we’ve got the whole kit and caboodle in the form of interior and exterior shots of the future luxury SUV. These images don’t reveal a whole new vehicle, but that’s not what we were expecting anyway. What they do show is the familiar RangeRover shape and curves with a little Evoque thrown in for modern measure. There are also new air ducts on the front grill and softer edges throughout.

The interior of the Range Rover has also been revamped to look even more luxurious, which is not a small feat considering the luxury the SUV has anyway. The center console was thoroughly cleaned up and only a few buttons and knobs were left to operate. The air vents were moved above the navigation screen and the dashboard looks to be cleaner and digital with striking lights. Overall, the interior has just been updated for more practicality and a modern edge.

Now that the full package has been leaked in pictures, we expect LandRover to officially release all of the details on the future Landrover Range Rover very soon, before it makes its appearance at the 2012 Paris Auto Show in the last week of September. Sales will begin in November 2012.

LandRover RangeRover

Do you remember the first leaked images of the 2013 Range Rover which surfaced on the internet just the other day? Well, we decided to put our imagination to work and give you a better view of the upcoming SUV. Of course, we won’t need to wait very long to see the real thing because the new Range Rover will be making its world debut at the 2012 Paris Auto Show in September.

As you probably know by now, the new Land Rover SUV will be built on a lightweight, rivet-bonded aluminum chassis which will help reduce the car’s total curb weight and as a result, will improve its fuel economy. The engine line-up will include a 5.0 liter V8 offered in both naturally-aspirated and supercharged versions (for the Range Rover Sport version) and a pair of diesel engines for the European market. Land Rover has also promised a hybrid version which will combine a 3.0-liter TDV6 diesel with an electric motor and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. This version is rumored to deliver an impressive 33 mpg on a combined cycle.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport

The upcoming Range Rover Sport has been caught testing yet again, except this time Land Rover is trying to play tricks by placing a Volvo logo on their prototype. Compared to the first spy shots, these new ones have dropped some of the camouflage at the front end of the vehicle to reveal the grille and air intakes in the bumper.

The upcoming Sport version will carry a lot of design elements from the standard Range Rover , including the wraparound headlights, but it will also get some elements that will help to easily identify it. It will be slightly wider and lower with a more sloping roof line.

Under the hood, we will see both diesel and petrol units, with the most powerful one being the 5.0 liter V8 supercharged engine delivering a total of 510 HP.

The new Range Rover Sport is scheduled to arrive about a year after the standard Range Rover makes its world debut at the Paris Auto Show in September 2012.

In the past few weeks, we have seen plenty of spy shots of the upcoming Land Rover Range Rover , but today, the first image of the vehicle without any camouflage has surfaced on the internet thanks to MotorAuthority. This leads us to believe that an official debut will be made very soon.

The new 2013 Range Rover - codenamed L405 - will be built on a lightweight, rivet-bonded aluminum chassis that will help significantly reduce the SUV’s total curb weight, but also improve its total performance and reduce its fuel economy. Land Rover has promised that a planned plug-in hybrid model will deliver an impressive 33 mpg, on a combined cycle.

The rest of the line-up will carry the current engines offered: a 5.0 liter V8 offered in both naturally-aspirated and supercharged version and a pair of diesel engines for the European market. Their outputs will range from 260 to 510 HP. The hybrid version will be powered by a 3.0-liter TDV6 diesel combined with an electric motor and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Land Rover has been testing the next generation Range Rover for awhile, but these latest photos suggest the official debut is getting close. As you can see, the SUV is wearing less camouflage than ever and looks more like a pre-production car that went out for a quick spin than some of the earlier prototypes we’ve seen testing.

The drop of some camouflage allowed us to uncover some of the secrets Land Rover has been hiding about its future Range Rover. The prototype caught testing is wearing light stickers that serve as an attempt to hide details such as the new head lights, air intakes, and more. We can also see that the engine hood is more rounded than before and that the grille is more upright.

As reported earlier, the next Range Rover will be both lighter and more fuel efficient than the current model due to the use of more lightweight material and the new aluminum platform. It is rumored that the car will be about 660-880 lbs lighter than the current generation.

The official debut for the 2013 Landrover Range Rover will be made in September at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. Sales will begin early in 2013.
