Land Rover is giving some upper-class treatment to its basic diesel Range Rover Sport model. Called the Range Rover Sport Stormer Edition (don’t get it confused with the Range Stormer sports coupe/SUV concept that’s the basis for all Range Rover Sports), it starts with the 188 hp TDV6 ’S’ model. Land Rover then adds upmarket features like 20" 10-spoke alloy wheels, tail-mounted rear spoiler, deep sculptured front and rear bumpers, integrated rectangular exhaust pipes, body-colored lower body side mouldings and lower tailgate moulding, leather seats, front and rear Park Distance Control (PDC) and Personal Telephone Integration.
Sales wil begin in March at a price of £43,550. No use in showing the exchange rate on this one. Since the U.S. doesn’t have any diesel Range Rovers/Land Rovers, we won’t be getting this one either.
Press release after the jump
As the official vehicle sponsor, Land Rover will be showcasing the new Range Rover Sport ’Stormer Edition’ together with the latest line-up of vehicles at The London International Boat Show this week.
The ’Stormer Edition’ is based on the entry-level Range Rover Sport TDV6 ’S’ but comes with additional features including 20 inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, tail-mounted rear spoiler, deep sculptured front and rear bumpers, integrated rectangular exhaust pipes, body-coloured lower body side mouldings and lower tailgate moulding, leather seats, front and rear Park Distance Control (PDC) and Personal Telephone Integration.
Available in a choice of three colours – Santorini Black, Alaska White and Stornoway Grey – only 300 ’Stormer Editions’ will go on sale in the UK from March, priced at £43,550 on the road.
John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director commented: "With a host of exterior and interior additions the Range Rover Sport ’Stormer Edition’ offers a value for money alternative for customers wishing to own a Range Rover Sport with the visual impact of the HST but at a lower price."
Mr Edwards continues, "What better place to launch this than at the prestigious London International Boat Show which we have sponsored since 2006. All of our products including the ’Stormer Edition’ have excellent towing capacity and a unique breadth of capability making them the vehicle of choice for those who enjoy an active lifestyle such as boating."
