Range Rover Sport RS spotted - latest pictures

Development mule of the RS-badged Range Rover Sport spotted again at the Nürburgring, promises over 540bhp

The Range Rover Sport RS has again been spotted testing at the Nürburgring.

This latest test mule sports new double exhausts, which our spy photographers report as giving the car an ‘incredible’ sound. Tipped to be the ultimate performance version of the Range Rover Sport, the car will also be joined by an RS-badged Evoque.

The Evoque RS is expected to be launched first, possibly even by the end of the year, but it is the Range Rover Sport RS mule that has been caught by our spy photographer as it 
underwent performance testing in Germany.

Sources say that its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine will have at least the same 542bhp as the Jaguar XKR-S, XFR-S and XJR. That’s 39bhp more than the new Range Rover Sport’s supercharged V8. Land Rover will be looking for a 0-62mph time of 4.5sec.

The RS prototypes we’ve seen are well disguised, but it can be seen that the model will have a unique front bumper design, with the foglights replaced by large air intakes. There are also changes to the rear bumper and the lower skid plate.
