The newly redesigned Range Rover Sport has a supercharged V8 and is a capable off-roader. It also looks fantastic.
It’s lighter and therefore more fuel efficient than its predecessor as well as being more powerful. The new Range Rover Sport also looks better than the old model, something that’s not easy to accomplish considering there’s only so much designers can do with the signature Range Rover styling language. But low and behold, the 2014 Range Rover Sport is a vehicle that simply does everything well. It’s powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that spits out 510 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph happens in just five seconds flat and the SUV has a top speed of 155 mph.
The Range Rover Sport is also ridiculously luxurious and off-road capable. In other words, it won’t be any problem to pull up to a five-star hotel with it completely caked in mud; you’ll still look good. The guys at XCAR are therefore wondering whether the regular Range Rover even needs to exist.
