Land Rover teases the Range Rover Sport RS

Article by Christian A., on June 17, 2014

Land Rover released today the first video of what is calls the fastest model to date. Developed by the recently announced Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the new vehicle is based on the 2014 Range Rover Sport.

Although the video doesn’t show too much, there is a voiceover that confirms testing the new Range Rover Sport on the well-known Nurbrugring racetrack, the place where top performance cars go in order to set the fastest time.

There is also a vehicle revealing a V8 engine noise, most likely from the 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 with 550 hp that powers most of the high-performance R-S models from Jaguar.

The new vehicle might be called Range Rover Sport RS and according to AutoExpress it might be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds, while top speed will be 165 mph or 265 km/h.

Regarding the design, we expect to see a new body kit consisting of a new front bumper with larger air intakes, some stylish side sills as well as a new rear bumper with integrated quad-exhaust tailpipes.

Newly designed alloy wheels will be offered too, wrapped in high-performance tires. According to rumors, we might see this new Range Rover Sport at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, standing next to the 2015 Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack.

If you can’t wait the new model, you cant get the current Range Rover sport powered by the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that delivers 510 hp.
