There is a new 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport R-S in the works, a more sporty and more powerful version of the popular SUV. Here are some spy shots of this model taken on several occasions during the testing of this model.
Design of 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport R-S
Even though the model is covered in camouflage, one can notice a lot of details. On the front, you will notice the large air intakes, which are required for cooling the more powerful V-8 engine. The front bumper seems to be quite lowered. It seems to me that the headlights are the same as on the current model.
If you look closely, you will see the two heat extractors on the hood, near the windshield. Noticeable are turn signals on the side mirrors. Wheels do not look like anything special, but I understand that the production model will come with better alloy wheels. These are provided just for testing.
On the back of the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport R-S, there are quad exhaust tips, a pair on each side. There is also a larger spoiler mounted on a top of the tailgate.

Engine and Performance
No precise details regarding what engine will power the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport R-S, but some reports suggest that this SUV will have a supercharged 5.0-liter eight-cylinder engine under its hood. We could expect about 550 horsepower and above 510 pound-feet of torque. Maybe even more. Combine that with an 8-speed transmission and all-wheel drive, and that will be one powerful machine. Remember, these are just rumors, so take it with a grain of salt.
2015 Range Rover Sport Release Date
The exact release date of the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport R-S is not known yet, but according to some reports we could expect that this SUV will be unveiled in the upcoming months, no later than the summer of 2014.
