Scoop: New Range Rover Sport Filmed in the Mojave Desert


Vast as it may be, the Mojave Desert is a good place to begin your search for automotive engineers trialing camouflaged prototypes of future models. The scoopsters at KGP Photography know this all too well and were on hand to record a number of 2014 Range Rover Sport test cars.

The second generation of Land Rover's sleeker sibling of the full-size Range Rover will move further away from its non-Sport namesake in terms of styling (see CarScoop's rendering here), while making use of its Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) that should shave as much as 300kg (about 660 pounds) over the current model.

Different as they may be on the outside, in the scoop video we see that the interior is shared with the larger 2013 Range Rover, sans some sportier detailing such as the three-spoke steering wheel.

The close relationship with the Range Rover means that the two models will share the same engine lineup of V6 and V8 turbo diesels and supercharged V8 petrols.

Even though Ford claimed they broke up with their premier auto group which included land rover, jaguar, aston martin and volvo. I still think they have a secret relationship going on. Look at the new fusion they stole that grill straight from aston martin and the control knob for the diffrent terrain settings in the explorer that had to come straight from land rover. And I'm not a big fan of the new range rover its like a mixture of ford flex in the front and sides and explorer in the back. I think they just dig in each others parts bin from time to time when they can't think of something. I just hope the range rover sport looks good and not just a squished version of its big brother.

I think the only one that really broke off is Volvo, they have really developed their own identity and style.

Phoned Land Rover dealership yesterday to inquire about the upcoming Sport. It won't be released until the Fall - no news on when it will be shown however I hope its Geneva.
