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.

        I don't know if that is true, I saw one Range Rover review where the car had water coming in through the roof and Matt Farah did a review last week where I believe the RR window switch quit working. Brand new test vehicles.

      Considering the 2014 Ranger Rover Sport has already debuted, and I only see subtle difference in the bumper cover, I feel this would've actually gotten LESS attention from spy photographers without the camo wrap.

      They should develop a path for getting out of the bottom of every reliability list.

      Are you sure it's not an Explorer?

      I'll answer your question with another question: Does anyone really care? Besides a rich 16 year old girl. . .

      Damn! How much faster do they want to make it? It already beat up on a SRT-8 Jeep as it is so it doesn't get much better then that
