2010 Range Rover Sport upgraded by Mansory

Article by Christian A., on October 20, 2010

After we saw the impressive body kit designed for the Bmw X5 M, Mansory decided to make us drool once again and unveiled a new customization programme for the Range Rover Sport.

As you can see from the photos, the new tuning kit designed for the Range Rover Sport includes a new front bumper with integrated daytime running LEDs, a new carbon fiber front grille and a new hood with a big centered air inlet.

Furthermore, the kit includes new side sills, enlarged front and rear fenders, a rear roof carbon fiber spoiler, D-pillars fitted with carbon fiber applications, and a new rear bumper with integrated carbon fiber air diffuser and exhaust system.

The design is complete of the car is completed by the 23-inch light metal wheels wrapped in high-performance 315/25 R23 tyres. Thanks to the new air suspension module, the center of gravity can be lowered by up to 30 millimeters, which means that the rims can be shown off even more.

Regarding the engine, Mansory offers an increase of 30 hp and extra torque of 40 Nm. These numbers are obtained thanks to the new sports exhaust systems, sports air filters and optimized ECU.

Excellent performance and upgraded technical specifications are two of the things that you can expect from the 2010 Range Rover Sport. These are made possible by two new engines that have been placed under the hood of the Range Rover.

These are, namely, the LR-V8 5.0 liter supercharged engine that delivers 510 bhp, and a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated version that gives out 375 bhp. According to Group Chief Engineer Ron Lee of the Jaguar Land Rover powertrain team, these two engines give out “state-of-the-art” performance and ensures responsive driving for drivers.

Compliant with the naturally strict ULEV2 emission standards, these two engines are definitely eco-friendly. Not only that, they were also engineered to maximize performance and fuel economy. Fuel consumption remains roughly the same as previous models, but they are still able to give out a performance that exceeds the capabilities of their predecessors.

For instance, the naturally-aspirated version of the LR-V8 can hit 60 mph in 7.2 seconds after accelerating from a standstill. This performance slightly beats the record of the 4.2-liter supercharged engine in previous Land Rovers by just 0.1 second.

The supercharged version of the LR-V8 does even better – it only needs 5.9 seconds to fly from zero to 60 mph. Behind the excellent performance of these two powertrains are the expertise of the engineers in both the Land Rover and Jaguar.

The engineers worked hard to ensure optimal performance in torque and responsiveness. Combined with performance that’s worthy of the Jaguar is an engineering design that is distinctively Land Rover.

Since the Land Rover is an all-terrain vehicle, its engine performance must be slightly different from the Jaguar engines.

One difference is that several components in the new Land Rover engines are waterproofed – these components are the belt drives, the alternator, the air conditioning compressor, the starter motor and the pump that makes power steering possible. The engine is also optimized for off-road driving by increased depth in the engine sump.
