2010 Range Rover by ONYX gets 635 hp! Is it enough?

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The tuning specialists at ONYX concept have unveiled their latest edition 2010 Range Rover Vogue and Sport packages. The bespoke tuning company offers the Platinum V and S packages that have excellent styling, performance updates, and flawless craftsmanship.

The upgrades include front and rear bumpers arches and spoilers created from the highest quality FRP, prepregnated carbonfiber materials used in manufacturing side vents, front grills and rear difussers.

It’s notable that these carbonfiber techniques are what are used in high-end industries such as formula 1 and aerospace engineering. For its interior, the vehicle has had a truly awesome makeover. We see buffalo hide perforated leather in various colors and designs.

For a better performance, ONYX raised the power output on diesel models by 30%. Its exclusive 5.0L petrol engines generate 635 hp due to an ONYX remap and an ONYX replacement supercharger pulley. Reportedly, ONYX also made some other tweaks however; these have yet to be disclosed.

Land Rover added plenty of new technologies and features for the 2010 model year of the Range Rover Sport, and these include the amazing Terrain ResponseTM system. With these refinements, the Range Rover Sport is but one of the best, if not the best, vehicles to conquer the off roads with.

The new TerrainResponse system also provides drivers with the capability to harness the 2010 Range Rover Sport’s sporty performance in straight road driving. This is possible through the Dynamic setting in the TerrainResponse system. When selected, the chassis and the engine are both optimized to bring about the performance and handling that the driver needs.

The Dynamic setting works in tandem with improved settings in steering response and body control through the Adaptive Dynamics system to bring about the sporting characteristics of the 2010 Range Rover Sport.

Drivers can also expect more responsiveness and safe handling from the Dynamic program when driving the supercharged version of the 2010 Range Rover Sport.

This is made possible by the cooperation between the Dynamic program and the changes in the rear roll control bar of the supercharged 2010 Range Rover Sport, as well as tweaks in the steering, suspension and wheel alignment.

The 2010 Range Rover Sport also features tweaks in performance that make it safe for driving in soft sand surfaces without consuming a lot of power. The feature ‘sand launch control’ as well as adjustments to the traction control system is designed to keep the 2010 Range Rover Sport’s wheels from burrowing into sandy surfaces.

Designed to traverse any road condition imaginable, the 2010 Range Rover Sport also features adjustments to rock crawl program to make driving through rocky terrain safer than before. Improved brake and traction control response timing keep the wheels pointed in the right direction even when the truck is rolling through rocks.

The Hill Descent Control system that made the Range Rover Sport popular among off-road drivers is even more improved in the 2010 model year. A new feature, called the Gradient Release Control, prevents the 2010 Range Rover Sport from going too fast when going downhill at very steep slopes.
