The new Range Rover will soon be complemented by a derivative Range Rover Sport. His prototypes are already on the way, eg also on the northern ring of the Nürburgring.
In the coming months, Land Rover will gradually change its largest luxury model in the Range Rover range. The new fifth-generation Range Rover debuted, followed by the Range Rover Sport derivative, a sporty derivative of both design and character. The attached video shows that the novelty has already been carefully tuned.
The video captured the car, among other things, on the northern ring of the Nürburgring, where the chassis of new cars is traditionally tuned. However, the fast wheels did not happen this time, also due to bad weather.
According to the video’s author, the footage shows the Range Rover Sport SVR sports derivative, which is expected under the hood of a 4.4-liter eight-cylinder fork with twin turbochargers from BMW, as part of Jaguar Land Rover’s collaboration with this German automaker. In this case, it can be set at about 600 hp (447 kW), which on the one hand will be more than Its predecessor, still sourced from Ford’s five-liter eight-cylinder air compressor, came in at 423 kW.On the other hand, it wouldn’t jeopardize the rival BMW X5 M with the same 4.4-liter capacity that was tuned to 460 kW.
However, we do not know more information about the new Range Rover Sport, for example, the design is still carefully hidden under a thick layer of camouflage. from The fifth generation of Range Rover However, it is likely that the car will be distinguished not only by its sporty appearance, but also by other details. It seems that the headlights and taillights will be designed differently. That is, if their shape does not hide the prototype well.
In any case, the technical basis for the next third generation Range Rover Sport will be the same as for the new Range Rover. This means that the MLA-Flex construction uses an intelligent blend of materials for the lowest possible weight and at the same time the highest possible structural rigidity. In addition, it is adapted to electric motors, so even in the case of Sport, a mild hybrid three-liter six-cylinder is expected as well as a pair of plug-in hybrids.
While the Range Rover 5 has already appeared, we will wait a few more months for the new Range Rover Sport. It is not expected to be discovered until the second half of 2022.
