2013 Range Rover Sport

2013-03-27 12:21

Land Rover has unveiled the new Range Rover Sport ahead of the New York auto show.

The 2014 Range Rover Sport is one of the sportiest cars Land Rover has built. Its 380kW supercharged five-litre V8 and an aluminium chassis stand a good chance of competing against a sports car.

However, it hasn’t yet reached its full potential - which is why Land Rover could be integrating one of Jaguar’s powerful engines; the 410kW XFR-S, XKR-S and XJS unit. The new RR Sport’s lighter body and the use of Jaguar engines will improve the SUV’s performance.

The current Range Rover Sport's Supercharged version gets from zero-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds. Perhaps 0.3sec could be cut from that when the new model debuts.

The 2013 Model will reach South Africa in November 2013.
