Article by Christian A., on July 29, 2013

Land Rover is working on sporty versions of the new Range Rover and the Evoque, according to the latest reports from Autocar. Apparently, the British carmaker owned by Tata Motors, the sporty models from Land Rover will get ‘RS’ badges.

The first RS model from Land Rover will be a Range Rover Evoque and Autocar says that this will be launched possibly by the end of the year.

The Evoque RS will get a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine developing around 300 bhp. Regarding the design, this will not be changed extensively. Still, the focus will be on the Range Rover Sport, which was recently caught by spy photographers at the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany.

Sources confirmed the fact that the new high-performance SUV will be powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that will deliver around 542 bhp, 39 bhp more than the standard version of the supercharged V8 found on the Range Rover Sport.

The new Range Rover Sport RS will also get a new design consisting of new front and rear bumpers, larger air intakes instead of the foglights, bigger wheels and a more powerful braking system. Moreover, the new Range Rover Sport RS is expected to make its debut next year, after the Evoque RS will be revealed.
