Land Rover releases first Range Rover Sport teaser footage
Land Rover is gearing up for this year's New York Auto Show with a teaser for the company's new Range Rover Sport. The brief clip doesn't reveal much beyond a fender and a quick glimpse at a headlamp (which picks up the flared look of the new Range Rover), but we do get to put an ear on the machine's exhaust note for the first time. Trust us when we tell you you'll want to get friendly with your volume knob on this one. Details are scarce as can be at the moment, but it certainly sounds as if there are eight furious cylinders burbling away in this thing.
The last time we saw the Range Rover Sport in development, it was prancing around in the snow near the Arctic Circle. That peek didn't give us much to go on beyond some suggestion towards a significantly revised lower fascia, though we have heard Land Rover is working on whipping up a seven-passenger version of the Range Rover Sport in addition to the standard five-passenger model. Since previous iterations of the RRS have derived their underpinnings from the seven-passenger LR4, that would seem to be a pretty easy thing to engineer. While you're waiting for the Big Apple reveal, you can check out the new teaser video below.
