Sporty Landy storms into SA

2005-09-05 07:59

Although this new Landy shares its name with the range-topping Range Rover, the Sport derivative is a unique model and a fifth nameplate for the Land Rover brand.

Land Rover says that the Range Rover Sport was designed to complement the Range Rover, but that the newcomer is a completely new vehicle acting as a more compact, more agile and more performance-oriented SUV.

The top-line model uses a 287 kW Jaguar-derived supercharged V8 engine and has a top speed of 225 km/h. A normally aspirated V8, with a power output of 220kW and a torque figure of 425 Nm, is also available.

A 140 kW 2.7-litre turbodiesel derivative will also join the line-up later.

All models come with a six-speed automatic gearbox and the same full-time four-wheel-drive system.

  • Watch out for Wheels24 managing editor John Oxley's driving impressions of the Range Rover Sport as he will drive the vehicles on Tuesday.
