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.
Range Rover Sport Winner likewise boasts of fine horizontal lines -- in a contrasting dark shade – that makes the rear have some extra mass and width. Other design elements features include small spoiler fins and fine air inlets as well as boomerang-shaped grids on the sides stretching into the wings.
The black lower part of the Range Rover Sport Winner is laden with irregular polygons and features the four-pass Remus exhaust system with black-chrome-plated tail pipes. The Range Rover Sport Winner likewise features a central LED brake light, a common sight among large LARTESUVs, as well as glossy black alloy wheels.
Land Rover gifted the new Range Rover Sport with a bold yet progressive exterior design that marks it as a member of the latest Range Rover line-up. Featuring a re-interpretation of the strong design DNA of the current Range Rover Sport, the latest iteration boasts of a sleek and modern look, as well as a characteristic sporting character made possible by its sloping roofline.
In terms of length, the new Range Rover Sport – at 4,850 mm -- is only 62 mm longer than its predecessor but is still shorter than other seven-seat SUVs and most sedans in the E segment. This compact length means the new Range Rover Sport offers greater levels of maneuverability.
But since the new Range Rover Sport has a wheelbase longer by 178 mm than its predecessor, it offers a more spacious interior as well as better rear access. Compared to the new Range Rover, the new Range Rover Sport is 149 mm shorter, 55 mm lower and 45 kg lighter.
The new Range Rover Sport also comes with reinterpreted design cues like the signature clamshell bonnet, side fender vents and floating roof. It is also provided with new versions of the dynamic wheel arch graphic, characterstic rocker moldings and horizontal feature lines. Meanwhile, the front end is given a more modern, more streamlined look, as defined by its rearward sloping grille, slimmer headlights and more sculpted corners.
Gerry McGovern remarked that the new Range Rover Sport takes the 'S' in SUV to a new level. He called the Range Rover Sport as dramatic and powerful while having immense road presence. He added that the Range Rover Sport comes with low center of gravity, a dynamic stance as well as high belt line, distinctive silhouette and short overhangs that convey its sporting attributes.
