Lumma Design introduced a new program for the Range Rover at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last June, adding to a growing portfolio of aftermarket programs that’s as impressive as they come in the tuning game. From Porsche 911 s to BMW X6 s, there are no shortage of tuning projects that has the German tuner’s badge on it and this new CLR SR kit for the Range Rover is the latest in a long list of them.

You can take one look at this Range Rover and you can immediately tell the difference. Lumma Design’s penchant for building quality kits is a testament to that.
This particular kit is available for both the Range Rover Sport and Vogue models, enhancing an already versatile luxury SUV with an aggressive body kit that brings out those pearly, British eyes.

This kit is the kind of program that owners of the Range Rover Sport and Vogue models should definitely have their eye on. The aerodynamic kit and the modest performance improvement will definitely make it worth their time.

Generally speaking, off-road performance and track performance are not realms that can exist together within one vehicle. But somehow, Land Rover has been breaking the laws of physics with its Range Rover Sport since its debut in 2005. Now it seems Land Rover has decided to abolish all traces of such forces that keep large SUVs from handling well around corners. Meet the upcoming Range Rover Sport RS.

Yep, RS. Land Rover is taking the already sporty Sport and turning up the juice for a more engaging, on-road experience thanks to a few key improvements, not the least of which is a more powerful engine. It’s highly likely the standard Sport’s 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 will remain, but with the same 40-horsepower bump the Jaguar XFR-S enjoys. That brings the Range Rover’s normal 510-horsepower mill up to 550 ponies. Expect Jaguar’s extra 41 pound-feet of torque to transfer over as well, bringing that total to 502 pound-feet.

The second-generation Range Rover Sport made its official debut at the 2013 New York Auto Show . It went on sale in a choice of four equipment levels, with the Autobiography sitting right at the top and an extensive choice of colors, finishes, and options waiting to be checked. Needless to say, the Range Rover Sport is one of the most customizable SUVs on the market.

However, the British seem to think customers could be persuaded to check even more boxes on the options list and are responding accordingly with a brand-new package. Surprisingly enough, the new pack doesn’t improve the vehicle’s interior in terms of luxury or technology. The new bundle is all about styling and advertises a subtle approach that may go unnoticed to the untrained eye.

Conspicuous or not, the Stealth Pack will benefit from a fancy debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed , where a properly equipped Range Rover Sport will showcase its new body features while climbing up the Goodwood hill.

Ever since the Land Rover’s Range Rover trudged over its first rough ground in 1970, the SUV has been leading the pack in terms of off-road ability and useful amenities wrapped in a utilitarian package. Originally only sold outside the United States, the Range Rover didn’t make its first official (and non gray-market) U.S. sale until 1987. Since then, the Range Rover has undergone three generational changes, with each becoming more luxurious than the last. The fourth-generation Range Rover debuted for the 2013 model year with a heavily revised and highly stylized design, and a more rounded, aerodynamic look.

I recently spent a week getting to know the Brit inside and out. My tester came nearly fully stocked with every conceivable option available from Land Rover, including the ultra luxury Autobiography Package. The list of amenities reads like a dream car wish-list. Full Semi-Aniline leather seats; rear seat entertainment package; 18-way power front seats with memory, massage, heating, and cooling; 1700-watt, 29-speaker Meridian 3D surround sound system; exterior Surround Camera System; Adaptive cruise control; Parallel Park Assist; four-zone climate control; and Adaptive front headlights. And that’s just the most notable of the optional extras.

The list of standard features is twice as long and includes things like the 12.3-inch TFT gauge cluster screen, the full panoramic glass roof, 21-inch alloy wheels, permanent four-wheel-drive with Land Rover’s Terrain Response System, and of course, power everything.

Speaking of power, the Range Rover had no shortage of it under its aluminum hood. Perched inside is a supercharged, 5.0-liter V-8 cranking out 510 horsepower and a rock-crawling 461 pound-feet of torque. Guzzling back the required premium gasoline, the massive 5,100-pound SUV sprints to 60 mph in a scant 5.2 seconds. To say the Range Rover Autobiography is an exercise in excess is an understatement, but for a select number of buyers, it combines the right amount of high-end luxury with the go-anywhere capabilities Land Rovers are known for.

Land Rover has yet to bring the Range Rover Hybrid to the United States, but the fuel-sipping SUV is already available in Europe and, according to the company, it will go on sale in China next month as well.

The big news, however, is that the world’s largest automotive market is also getting the hybrid powertrain in the long-wheelbase version of the Range Rover , allowing Chinese customers to enjoy an extra 186 mm (7.3 inches) of rear legroom.

Developed on the same Silk Trail expedition know-how that led to the creation of the regular Ranger Rover Hybrid, the long-wheelbase version benefits from the same powertrain and performance specs.

At the heart of the SUV lays a 3.0-liter, SDV6, turbo-diesel engine and a 35-kW (47-horsepower) electric motor that combine to deliver 335 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Connected to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the combo enables the vehicle to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about 7.5 seconds, while top speed is rated at 135 mph.

When used on electric power alone, the SUV has a range of only one mile and can reach a top speed of 30 mph. Moving over to what matters the most to a hybrid — fuel efficiency — the Range Rover LWB promises to return up to 37 mpg combined, a figure unchanged versus the regular wheelbase model. Additionally, regenerative braking helps recharge the batteries while you bring the SUV to a stop.

While Chinese deliveries will commence in the fourth quarter of the year, details as to when the Range Rover Hybrid will cross the Pond to North America are still unavailable. However, U.S. dealerships should get it by the end of 2015.

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 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.
