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.

The new kit is called 600-LE Luxury Edition, and as its name suggests, it’s all about bringing the Range Rover to a new level of luxury. We have to admit that the car looks so sexy with its gloss-black exterior paint and that highly updated interior that surrounds you in an envelope of luxury.

What’s cool about this new 600-LE Luxury Edition is its new bumper design and aggressive grille that is designed accordingly to Kahn Design’s new "floating light" design language. Other updates offered by Kahn include a new rear bumper and a new rear spoiler.

The Rub’ al Khali, also known as The Empty Quarter, is the largest sand desert in the world, with a length of 620 miles, a width of 310 miles and an area of 250,000 square miles. With average temperatures of 117 degrees F, you can imagine that the desert is not the most pleasant place on Earth.

But this particular place on Earth was seen as a challenge by the engineers at Land Rover and they sent a Range Rover Sport over to this barren land to see how fast it can cross it.

The result is a new record , with an average speed of 51.87 mph (81.87 km/h), the Range Rover Sport managed to make the 527-mile journey from Wadi Adda Wasir in Saudi Arabia to the border of the United Arab Emirates in just 10 hours and 22 minutes.

The video released today by Land Rover features spectacular footage from inside and outside the vehicle, as well as epic shots of the environment that the team faced as they tackled the largest sand desert in the world.

The car that challenged this massive sandbox was a stock Range Rover Sport equipped with standard tires and an underbody protection plate, which goes to show just how awesome the Range Rover Sport is.

Onyx Concept is coming to the SEMA Auto Show and its bringing its long anticipated program for the Range Rover that will no doubt get its fair share of attention in Las Vegas.

The company’s CEO, Trevor Musgrave, has made no bones about his excitement for the flagship Range Rover Aspen Ultimate Series. Rightfully so, too, considering that the program comes with a comprehensive upgrade that covers the SUV ’s aesthetics and more importantly, its 5.0-liter, V-8 engine.

The exterior upgrades are no less stunning as they are effective. Carbon fiber was predominantly used on the new components, which includes new aero fins, pillars, front air dams, mirrors, and diffusers. Taken all together, it gives the Range Rover a 27 mm (1.06-inch) wider wheelbase .

Those elements come into play when you also take into consideration the engine upgrade Onyx Concept did to the SUV, increasing the output from its 5.0-liter, V-8 engine to an astounding 625 horsepower, 115 horsepower more than the standard 505 ponies the Range Rover has inside its belly.

The program will be showcased at the 2013 SEMA Auto Show together with the Aspen Rogue program, an equally impressive kit that we’re pretty excited to see too.

For the most part, the 2013 Range Rover Sport doesn’t really need too many updates, since it is already quite the looker and rather powerful straight off of the showroom floor. Also going against it is the fact that the 2014 model is all-new. Despite that, tuners seem to be flocking to this model in recent weeks

The Range Rover Sport received a new upgrade kit from the German tuner, CDC International GmbH. It focused most of its work on updating the exterior and the interior look of the car, but CDC also managed to squeeze a few extra horsepower from the 5.0-liter, V-8 supercharged engine.

To milk the extra power, CDC adjusted the supercharger system via a gear change and an updated control unit. As a result, the Range Rover Sport now delivers a total of 580 horsepower and 695 Nm (512 pound-feet) — up from the standard 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque.

The tuner also installed a new stainless-steel exhaust system equipped with a valve system that helps further improve the incredible sound delivered by the V-8 engine.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport R-S

The first rumors about a more powerful Range Rover Sport started to surface at the beginning of 2013 when the British magazine AutoCar reported that confirmation came from a Land Rover insider. Since then, we’ve caught it testing a few times, and today we have images from its latest testing session on Nurbugring.

Compared to the previous times that we’ve caught it, this time the prototype is singing its favorite tune through a new quad-tailpipe exhaust system, and there is also a nice space between these pipes for a diffuser.

On the front bumper, there are massive air intakes and there are some new heat extractors on the hood to help keep that hulking V-8 good and cool. There are no official details on the type of engine that these intakes and vents are keeping cool, but rumors suggest that the new R-S version could get a supercharged V-8 putting down a healthy 550 horsepower.

Expect the new Range Rover Sport R-S to hit a dealers in 2014, shortly after the Range Rover Evoque R-S .

It looks like the British design firm, Kahn Design, is really in love with the new-generation Land Rover Range Rover , as it has announced quite a few new upgrades for it in the past few weeks. The latest one was announced at the end of August , and it featured a sweet satin-matte-black exterior paint.

Today the designer released the first details on a new, RS600 package. It will be unveiled at the end of 2013 and, as usual, it will all about updating the aesthetics of the luxury SUV. Kahn will also reveal a special-edition model called the "Black Label Edition" in early 2014.

The upgrades include a new aerodynamic kit, with new front and rear spoiler and vents, a specially prepared wheel arch kit, and a set of upgraded wheels. For the interior, the designer offers its customers the possibility to express themselves in any way they see fit.

Land Rover is taking fuel economy concerns with a stiff upper lip and a cup of tea, relaxed as it starts taking UK orders for its 45 mpg 2015 Range Rover SDV6 Hybrid flagship starting in September 2013. The first customer deliveries are expected in early 2014, wearing far fewer off-road accessories and prepared for a life of luxury.

This pair of test prototypes is enduring the opposite of luxury: a 10,000-mile durability journey from Land Rover headquarters in England to Tata Group ’s home base in Mumbai. Called the Silk Trail 2013 experience, the plucky Brits seem to have forgotten their own maritime excellence, and the blue part of the map that has long been the best passage to India.

Calling it the Silk Trail is more accurate than its other description, the Silk Road. Mud up to the door mirrors cannot stop the Range Rover Hybrid’s mission.

Going over land is a bold undertaking, and also highlights the production 2015 Range Rover Hybrid’s fuel economy and off-road credentials along the way. Arriving in Mumbai around 55 days later, taking a brand new Range Rover into dozens of foreign countries along the way is certainly a vote of confidence in its reliability - long a sore spot for this advanced machine.

A 3.0-liter diesel engine is paired with a jumbo 35kWh Li-ion battery pack, which is fully production-ready and will also be rolled out on the seven-seat 2015 Range Rover Sport SDV6 Hybrid as well.

The diesel-electric power is not exactly peachy news for U.S. Range Rover devotees, but the technology package should work well with Land Rover ’s new 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 as well.

Updated 09/13/2013: When Land Rover launched the first details on the Range Rover Hybrid everyone believed it will be an European-only model. However, in a recent interview Andy Goss, the current CEO of Jaguar Land Rover USA confirmed that a North American version of the Range Rover hybrid "It’s not a matter of ‘if,’ but ‘when.’" (LeftLaneNews)

Kahn Design is at it again with a blacked-out 2013 Range Rover Vogue available as a complete model in the U.K. for the equivalent of about $115,000. It takes a bold vision to strip away the Range Rover ’s iconic hood letters in favor of your own design firm, so how does Kahn Design add value to what is already the Rolls-Royce Phantom of SUVs?

This is a look-good design pack consisting of gorgeous alloy wheels, liquid gold-painted brake calipers and satin-matte-black exterior accents all around. Inside, things are much more conservative, with perforated leather in thatched bulges over piano black trim.

Compared with the hideous previous monochrome packages that celebs have driven over the years, this version is pretty conservative and quite stylish. The Kahn Design plan is far more popular on off-roaders versus the other celeb and ’footballer’ ride of choice: the Bentley Continental GT.

Among these ‘super smart’ individuals, value is much more about being unique and of the moment. If buying a brand new car to their exact modified spec is faster but a bit more expensive, Kahn is only savvy to oblige their whims.
