Range Rover Sport

The new Range Rover Sport will be making its debut at the New York International Auto Show at the end of the month, and we have this one teaser pic that doesn’t divulge much – unless you’re The Flash, perhaps.

A day before the wraps are officially cast aside on the stand, however, Land Rover’s “fastest, most responsive and agile vehicle to date” will be driven through the streets of Manhattan.

The drive will be broadcast live to audiences around the world on March 26 at 19.30 EDT (March 27 at 7.30 am Malaysian time), through the www.newrangeroversport.com microsite (prior registration required).

The company says the location is fitting, because apart from being the best-selling Land Rover product in North America, more Range Rover Sports are sold in the Big Apple than in any other metropolitan area in the world.

According to Autocar UK, the new Range Rover Sport shares the Mk4 Rangie‘s all-aluminium Premium Lightweight Architecture platform, and will also be built in Solihull. It should be about 300 kg lighter and even more sporting than the outgoing Sport, which was Land Rover Discovery-based.

The British publication adds that a hybrid drivetrain and a new 2.0 litre diesel engine will be among the line-up, and that a seven-seat option will be available.
