Spy Images of the 2015 Range Rover Sport Revealed
|   Saturday, April 05, 2014
A high end SUV from Range Rover has recently been spied testing at the Nürburgring track, fuelling rumors of a technologically advanced Range Rover Sport hitting the markets soon. Initially expected to be termed the RS, this vehicle features quite a few noticeable exterior features that help it stand out from the crowd.

A large air intake up front, coupled with a beefy looking front grille, redesigned rear bumper and quadruple exhausts are visible through thick camouflaging.
Range Rover recently launched a variant of its Evoque, based on their Autobiography Dynamic specification, sparking rumors of similar treatment meted out to their latest Range Rover too. Like its performance edition Evoque, this vehicle too draws power from a turbo charged 2.0 liter petrol engine that sits on top of its class.

Unconfirmed reports however suggest that we could be looking towards a turbo charged 5.0 liter petrol engine displacing 532 BHP. This drive train could be powering their latest XJR and XFR S Sport brake, apart from their XKR S. If you compare this variant to the base versions, differences can be spotted instantly. For example acceleration form 0 – 60 MPH is possible under 4.5 seconds, while this vehicle sports a top speed of 155 MPH, which is electronically limited.

Engineers at Land Rover are expected to have worked on the suspension on this vehicle, while high tensile anti roll bars have been added, along with damper modifications, for greater effect. Powerful braking is also its forte, while 21 inch sports rims have been added for greater functionality on the current variant. Hence, larger variants are unlikely. Heavy camouflaging is still evident on its exterior, which hints are further modifications to this vehicle.

We are expecting Jaguar Land Rover to come up with the production variant within 2015, although official confirmations are still unheard of. It is too early to comment on drive dynamics, interior and other specific traits of this vehicle as insiders are currently tightlipped about every specification. We however, plan on keeping you updated as soon as confirmations start trickling in. So bear with us for the time being.

Our first impressions of this vehicle were positive and we plan on getting back with a comprehensive drive test review, as soon as we get a chance. This vehicle is designed on the same base platform as its other RS siblings, which gives us similar stability and functionality as seen earlier. It should be on the sportier side of things, while decent amounts of off road travelling should also be possible.

A super charged vehicle is always in high demand, although Jaguar Land Rover as taken it to a whole new level. We expect serous levels of performance upgrades on this vehicle; while a lighter 8 speed automated transmission should do justice to overall performance. An all wheel drive train, along with rear wheel drive platforms should be available shortly and we are currently tracking this situation for additional details. Jaguar Land Rover have others news up their sleeve too!
