The interiors make me want to melt. Wonderful work there. I see that RR has decided to move towards sleeker machines and while the weight loss is welcome, I feel it's a step back in the design department. The evouqe is a great car in itself, but the evoque inspired styling in the bigger Rangies puts me off. They have lost their butch character.
That was the first thing that popped in your head when you heard the name 'Range Rover'. Butch. Closely followed by majestic.
Still happy to see the brand going strong and evolving. The Rover Sport and the big daddy Rangie are my favourite cars.
P.S Im new, so hi everyone!

Lovely all around but I somehow cannot digest the rear look especially the exhaust placement. They should be right at the edges to give an illusion of width. It looks very narrow and which is inverse of sporty.

I honestly like what they have done with the looks of the new car. I mean sure, it doesn't look as butch as before, but somehow the look goes down well with me.

Would really like to see the car in the flesh on our roads!

Personally, I like where LR's design language is headed. The old Sport looked too much like the Vogue and you could tell the difference only by noticing the different vents that flank the fenders. That isn't particularly a bad thing. But now, it looks more grown-up-Evoque than scaled-down-Vogue. Which isn't a bad thing either. I don't think it has lost its identity. In fact, I believe it's got a new identity now.

Now, men who liked the Evoque but were too insecure to drive one (owing to its chic / soccer-mom appeal) can get the new Sport.

Haha, didn't think of that aspect. But very very true

Im surprised that all LR products seem to have similar design to the new Ford Explorer, especially the headlamps.

It'll be interesting to know which Company's concept car portrayed this design element first.

On test : Range Rover Sport R

Just after the launch of the Range Rover Sport, Range Rover is testing the Sport R variant.

Engine will be XFR-S Sourced 5L V8 making 550 HP & 502 lb-ft of torque

With all more power beefier brakes, special wheels and a stiffer, lower suspension can be expected. (Though non are seen in the spy pics)

Default Range Rover Sport RS caught on camera

Range Rover Sport RS is designed to take on the BMW X5 M and Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
Power will likely be provided by the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that currently resides in the Jaguar XFR-S and XKR-S. This means we can expect it to produce 550 HP (405 kW) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque. Considering the Range Rover Sport Supercharged accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds, the RS variant should accomplish the same task in approximately 4.8 seconds.

Here, worldcarfans has caught the spyshots of the RS doing round at the Nürburgring.

Range Rover Sport SVR has become the fastest production SUV around the Nürburgring, lapping the circuit in 8 minutes 14 seconds. The record was set using a standard production model, with a Land Rover driver behind the wheel.

The Range Sport SVR is powered by an uprated version of Land Rover’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, which has been tuned to deliver 550PS (542hp) - a 40PS (39hp) increase over the standard engine.
