Range Rover Sport R-S Makes Its Debut At The Goodwood Festival Of Speed


Land Rover had announced that it is bringing the fastest, most agile and most responsive SUV it’s ever built, The Range Rover R-S to the ongoing 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed. To build up excitement the British automaker has released some videos offering us a peek of the vehicle’s menacing exhaust note and showing it undergoing testing at Germany’s Nürburgring race track.The new SUV is a more potent version of the latest Range Rover Sport, which is already billed as Land Rover’s most capable vehicle both on and off the road. However, as the voice-over in the video confirms, greater performance has been brought to the mix.

What To Expect:

Likely to wear the R-S badge, which is reserved for Jaguar Land Rover’s most powerful models and has never previously been used on a vehicle from Land Rover, prototypes for the new Range Rover Sport variant have been spied for more than a year. Sporty SUV, will be carry an aggressive front fascia with a mesh grille and larger air intakes. The model will also feature a sporty rear diffuser that is flanked by a four-tailpipe exhaust system. We can also expect a sport-tuned suspension and massive alloy wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system.

Under the hood is expected to sit a 550-horsepower version of the Jaguar Land Rover’s supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, which combined with sharper suspension, bigger brakes, and a lower, more aerodynamic body should ensure the new Range Rover Sport R-S reaches 100 km/h in around 4.8 seconds prior to hitting a top speed of approximately 265 km/h lives up to the promise of being the fastest and most agile Land Rover ever built.

The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from June 26-29 on the grounds of Goodwood House in the U.K. Also present will be a Range Rover Sport equipped with a new Stealth Pack accessories upgrade.
