2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

"No Land Rover has any business sounding like that!" My dad's words hung in the air like the few stray puffs of exhaust trailing in my wake as I motored away from him following a nice dinner. His parting statement to me really summed up the experience of driving this Chile Red Range Rover Sport. This is a vehicle unlike anything else Land Rover has ever built – and it needs to be. The Sport has been the British marque's best-selling vehicle since it went on sale in 2005 – even in its predecessor's final full year of sales, 2012, it still netted a four-percent bump.

    Care for a bit more proof that the Jaguar Land Rover portfolio of vehicles is the best it's ever been? Well, the Indian-owned pair of brands saw a record year in 2013, while 2014 has seen a 14-percent increase in sales.

    Nürburgring lap times, it should come as no surprise, have become the ultimate bragging rights for performance automakers. So much so, in fact, that the records have been categorized.

    Jaguar's AJ-V8 engine is many things to many cars. It may be old, sure – having been developed with Ford money back in the late 1990s – but it's also grown to be seriously powerful, with output rising from 240 horsepower in the original 3.2-liter version to 575 hp in its latest 5.0-liter supercharged form. It's rather ubiquitous, too, powering ...

    Capable on-road and off, the Range Rover Sport may be a lot of things, but one thing it is not is stealthy. It's 16 feet long, after all. That doesn't mean that Land Rover can't try, though, and try it will with the reveal of the Stealth Pack at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed.
