Land Rover readies a new hard core Range Rover Sport

20 Jun 2014 / 0

Remember the JLR Special Operations division? It seems that it is already in action. Land Rover has released a teaser video of the RR Sport’s ‘Nurburgring honed’ edition. The good thing is that you wont have to wait for long, as the SUV is coming to the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014.

The car passes so quickly in the teaser that it would have been hard to see it even without the camouflage. However, it’s not the looks that are most important with this version; it has to be the engine. The Nurburgring roots mean that the SUV will be a great handler for sure. Can it compete with the Porsche Cayenne? That’s a tough beat.

 

Land Rover had recently launced the Stealth Pack for the RR Sport. Currently the Range Rover Sport comes with two diesels and one petrol engine. The petrol already makes 510PS in the regular Sport. Is it the 550PS version of the same engine from the XKR-S? Only time shall tell.
