Range Rover Sport R Spy Shots

Our spy photographers believe Land Rover may be hard at work on a new, higher performance version of the company's Range Rover Sport. The creation you see here was spotted hopping around the Nürburgring, complete with a reworked front fascia that boasts larger air inlets. Those intakes could be feeding a more potent driveline with more than the 510 horsepower found in lesser Sport models. This machine could be a more venomous Range Rover Sport R.

Of course, the standard 2014 Range Rover Sport is nothing to sneeze at. Engineers pulled a baffling 800 pounds from the SUV compared to the previous generation thanks to a complete aluminum substructure. Packing 510 horsepower from a supercharged 5.0-liter V8, the performance SUV should have no trouble getting up and hustling. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
