The top-spec Range Rover Sport and the rest of the lineup will be unveiled in May.
In May, Land Rover will reveal the Range Rover Sport, but another prototype has been sighted in SVR form. It looks that this one was seen in Dubai, based on the registration plates displayed on the prototype. More crucially, these are spy images taken up close, revealing certain things hidden behind the thinning camouflage.
Unlike the previous sighting of a Range Rover Sport, this one is sporting the SVR skin. That’s obvious from the squared-off quad exhaust pipes. On both the front and back fascias, you can see the reworked headlights, taillights, and bumpers, but if you want a sneak peek, look at the new Range Rover.
Because of the evolutionary approach to design, the incoming RR Sport line appears fairly comparable to the outgoing model, but the foundations are radically different. The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is built on the same MLA-Flex architecture as the Range Rover Sport.
The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from the BMW X5 M will purportedly power the top-spec and most powerful Range Rover Sport SVR variant shown here. In the X5 M Competition, this engine produces 615 horsepower (452 kilowatts). However, we believe the Range Rover Sport SVR will be able to compete with rivalling European SUVs.
Land Rover has already teased the Range Rover Sport in a shadowy image of the cabin. The company said that “the global reveal will include a dramatic debut”, which will “continue the daring exploits of its predecessor by undertaking a unique challenge for its launch.”
More importantly, the Range Rover Sport, including the top-spec SVR, will be fully revealed on May 10, 2022.
