Jaguar Land Rover reveals Range Rover’s newest model as well as their first-ever first plug-in hybrid model, which is available only on the Sport trim. The SUV, which gets the “P400e” moniker, hides the charging port on the side of the front grille.

Love it or hate it: a two-door Range Rover Sport RS Coupe gets rendered

Speaking of design, just recently, Land Rover gave us a first look at the Range Rover Evoque Cabrio. It is a hybrid in the sense that it is part truck, part sport car. It is a truck that is a convertible. It has two doors, but sits four passengers. The company actually calls it a “crossover with capability”. It’s strange, but in a nice way - visually. I think this is the kind of car that people would either want or hate with a vengeance. There aren’t too many of those; that’s why this is such an interesting imagery.

Anyway, let’s move on to the core of this article. There was a computer-generated photo of a Range Rover Sport that was posted on Behance, a creative social media platform late last week. And the outcome looks really sexy. It is a two-door Range Rover Sport Coupe. Yes, you heard it right, a two-door Range Rover Sport.

But don’t get too excited for those of you who want to get one, as this is just a simple exercise by a certain Craig A Clark of Blackburn, United Kingdom. Let us give credit to Clark for rendering something really cool. Though this creation may look unrealistic or somewhat unpractical, the more you examine the images, the more you would think that “hey, it might actually work”. Well, it visually looks sweet to be honest.

2017 Range Rover Sport SVR sprint ability tested in real-world conditions [w/video]

Ever since it was launched in 2015, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR has proven to be one of the most powerful, quickest and fastest SUVs. In fact, it was able to complete a lap in the Nurburgring circuit (technically a road) in just 8 minutes and 14 seconds. Only a few SUVs are faster.

When buying a vehicle, one of the many considerations that a possible customer takes into account is how quick it could accelerate from zero to 60 mph or 62 mph (100 km/h). The weight of the vehicle, its output and its torque are the main determining factors.

Usually, this sprint time is measured dynamically, which means all factors have been optimized to favor a quick zoom from standstill on an asphalted track or road. Realistically, a dynamic sprint time applies only partly to vehicles that are expected to be taken off the road – to the grass, gravel and snow, as well as to the mud and sand. It’s because these are low-friction surfaces, and only all-terrain vehicles like the Range Rover Sport SVR are able to remain quick.

When the Range Rover Sport was first released, the plan then was to showcase luxury. However the model’s actual potential was hidden as U.K.-based Jaguar Land Rover released a more practical application of its mid-size SUV segment offering.

Every now and then, a version came out that showed a kitchen cabinet feel to this master living room. All of that however is nothing compared to the version that Vilner Studio, located in Sofia, Bulgaria, is revealing. As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, Vilner has made what may be one of the most elaborate projects to have its signature.

The actual car itself had previously undergone modification by tuner Barugzai and proof of this was the body kit and the 22-inch wheels. This enhancement was done as the model was the same one that was given as a prize in the highly-celebrated TV show called “Britain’s Got Talent”. Specifically, the original Land Rover Range Rover Sport was won by the dance group Diversity after beating out Susan Boyle during the talent show’s 3rd season.

Ben Saunders is known for his exploration of the Arctic and the Antarctic, usually on snowshoes. Just recently, he dared to make another trip to the Arctic, but this time he drove behind the wheel of the Range Rover Sport SVR on a full-scale on-ice replica of the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.

Land Rover documented Saunders' transformation from a newbie ice driver into an expert driver in Arjeplog, Sweden, where that carmaker carved a replica of the Silverstone circuit on the frozen Lake Udjaur.

Of course, his transformation was made possible with instruction and guidance from no other than Minna Sillankorva, a former rally champion who is now a Land Rover Experience instructor. Saunders admittedly remarked that it was his first time driving on ice, but he described the experience as the most fun he has ever had on four-wheels.

Premium tuner Larte Design is presenting another of its creations – the Winner SUV based on the Range Rover Sport. The Larte Range Rover Sport Winner, first unveiled at the Essen Motor Show 2014, features a distinctly designed front guard characterized by three trapezoid frames. The vehicle is laden with fine blue demarcation lines that be found all over the body and gives Winner a unique artistic air and character.

On the front, the Winner’s bumper seems like made up of muscles or bones covered by plastic, thanks to a number of polygons, air inlets and light steps. The central part features large air grids that break up the front’s monolithic appearance, giving a sense of dynamism and sportiness.

Hidden in the Winner’s upper spoiler fins are LED daytime running lights by the German supplier Nolden. The Winner also boasts of a black “sport band” that extends the roof and connects it with the rear.

The idea of a coupe version of the Range Rover Sport is not new as we already seen the Tiret Coupe or the one created by LSE Design. Still, there was no version of the new generation Range Rover Sport… until today, when AJP Design revealed their first photos with their Range Rover RS Sport Coupe.

Set to make its debut later this month, the new vehicle promises to offer a bespoke interior, new wheel design as well as an improved exhaust system that will deliver a proper sound of the engine. And speaking about the engine, the vehicle will arrive with the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 petrol engine that generates 510 hp, but also with the popular 3.0-liter SDV6 diesel that produces 258 hp.

Although there are no words about such a version, we’d love to see a Range Rover Sport SVR Coupe. This new model arrived last month and it is the most powerful version of the Range Rover Sport, built by the Special Operation Division.
