Land Sport Supercharged

It combines dynamic ability with comfort and refinement. Land calls it a sports tourer . reflects its ability effortlessly to long journeys quickly and and yet also to deliver sharp and exhilarating performance.

Its on-road is complemented by class-leading off-road

The top-line version uses a 287 kW bhp SAE) Jaguar-derived supercharged V8 and has a top speed of 225 km/h (140 electronically limited. It is the fastest and vehicle that Land has ever made. A normally V8 and advanced turbodiesel V6 are also (diesel not available in North and some other markets).

The Rover Sport is an additional, nameplate for the Land Rover says managing director Taylor. It competes in the growing SUV market, but is different from all

It is a sports tourer that the excitement of a performance car but with the and go-anywhere ability of a Land Unlike rivals, its high doesn t stop when the gets rough or runs It is an outstanding four-wheel-drive off-roader, as you d from Land Rover. And on compared with its rivals, we it is less frenetic, more and more comfortable.

It all adds up to the range of capability in its class.

It perfectly complements the existing Rover the most complete SUV. It will be priced the Discovery 3/LR3 and the Range in the Land Rover product

Refined, High-Performance Engines

The top Rover Sport model a 4.2-litre supercharged 287 kW(390 bhp V8 engine. Derived from the engine used in Jaguar models, it has been specially for Land Rover needs. torque is 550 Nm (410 lb ft), and and torque are fed, full-time, to all wheels through a ZF six-speed shift automatic gearbox. The features sport programming and Rover s Command Shift, offers manual control of changes.

Low range is electronically on the move , for tough off-roading.

engines offered are the Jaguar-derived 220 kW bhp SAE) 4.4-litre normally V8 and the advanced new 2.7-litre 140 kW (190 turbodiesel V6, which produces a 440 Nm of effortless torque. They use the six-speed ZF automatic gearbox and the full-time four-wheel-drive system as the model. Other high-technology of the powertrain include an electronically centre differential, which the vehicle s handling both off-road.

Tuned For On-Road But Class-Leading Off-Road

The new Range Sport is the best driver s that Land Rover has made. The company s new and unique Body-frames structure, first on the Discovery 3/LR3, has been for the Range Rover Sport . To the vehicle s sporty character, and agility, the wheelbase is 14 cm (six shorter. The fully independent, suspension has also been for exhilarating on-road performance.

body-roll and maximum driver were priorities. Double suspension front and rear as featured on the world s leading cars is used.

A new Land technology, Dynamic Response, reduces roll and improves This computer-controlled active system senses cornering and then acts to reduce It s one of the key reasons why this powerful SUV has the and handling of a much smaller vehicle.

It is standard on the supercharged and optional on other versions.

In with its driver s pedigree , work on the chassis tuning of the Rover Sport was undertaken at the race circuit in Germany, in to the extensive and rigorous on-road and Land Rover development On the supercharged version, four-piston Brembo front brakes give superb braking

In addition to its inspiring on-road the Range Rover Sport is competent across all terrains, packed snow to boulders. Rover s highly effective new Response system, which its production debut on the new Discovery is standard on all models. It allows the to choose one of five terrain via a pop-up rotary control on the console.

Terrain Response automatically selects (or guides the to select) the most appropriate for the vehicle s many advanced controls and traction aids ride height, engine response, Hill Descent electronic traction control and settings.

High-Speed Luxury. Packed Technology

The Range Rover is one of the most aerodynamic of all SUVs. packed with recognisable Rover cues, it is stylistically in many ways. The windscreen is steeply raked, the roofline is and sloped, the glass is flush the characteristic Range Rover castellations have been away and the vehicle sits

The Range Rover Sport has doors, with a single-piece aluminium tailgate that an opening rear glass for access.

Despite its comparative it is still a roomy SUV, space and comfort for five Premium materials including wood and metallic finishes are extensively. The cockpit is designed the driver, and is more enveloping other Land Rovers.

The and sweeping centre console the driver reach across to the rather than down to The seats are sporty and supportive.

The is far more cocooning than the SUV says Matthew Taylor. Yet is still the characteristic Land Command driving position, gives a superb view of the ahead and the scenery around The Range Rover Sport appeal to those who currently luxury executive cars as well as the more sporty thanks to its overall refinement and breadth of capability.

It is also the technologically advanced Land to date. Apart from Response, Dynamic Response and a of other advanced powertrain and controls, the Range Rover features Adaptive Cruise (its first Land application), bi-xenon adaptive lighting and the latest generation navigation, both on- and off-road. systems by harman/kardon and a twin-screen DVD seat entertainment system, high-resolution screens enclosed in the seat headrests, are available.

The Range Rover Sport like it s going fast when it s standing still. was one of design director Geoff s priorities when the vehicle was

When people see the vehicle should want to get in and drive it says Upex. It had to look and exciting, and be utterly tempting. We a compact, muscular, hewn-from-the-solid that promised great

It also had to look like a of the Land Rover family. But a sporting attitude.

We used of the classic Range Rover cues, like the floating achieved by the blacked-out roof but treated them in a different says Upex. Range Sport is a less formal and has more emotion. It had to look dynamic, more active, and be aggressive. The design is less and has more flow: it is more more compact, tighter and tapered.

That s the reason why vehicle does away the Range Rover s bonnet We wanted a smoother, more look.

The windscreen is steeply and the roof is lower than on Land Rovers. The glass is shallower and the rear D-pillars are Wheels are pushed out to the corners and are big on the supercharged model to fill the arches and convey the vehicle s character.

Bigger tyres offer more grip.

are front and rear spoilers side skirts. They not increase the sporty character of the but also improve high-speed and the aerodynamics. The new Range Rover is one of the world s most aerodynamically SUVs, with a drag of 0.37 (0.36 on some models).

The aerodynamic aids also been designed off-roading in mind. The front is made from rubber, so can knocks from rocks and and the side skirts not only stability and the drag coefficient, but stop mud splattering the sills and stone chips to the paintwork.

The of the roof is extended by a tail This appears to lengthen the line and gives a sportier as well as forming a flick to extend the airflow rearward. reduces wake turbulence and the aerodynamics.

Flush-fitting glass and surfacing around the lights improve the vehicle s ability to the air.

The Range Rover has a single tailgate with a lifting glass. Unlike the Rover s split tailgate necessitates a flat rear end the Rover Sport has a rounded This gives the vehicle a compact, tighter look and helps smooth the airflow the rear of the vehicle.

The nose of the vehicle bears a resemblance to the acclaimed Range concept car, which the Range Rover Sport unveiled at the 2004 North International Auto Show in As with Range Stormer, the Rover Sport offers a supercharged V8, which demands the passage of air around the engine. The mesh grille helps airflow into the engine while one of the two side vents get air out of the bonnet area quickly.

The side vent is an intake for the induction system.

The headlight continues the latest Land family look but is slimmer those used on the Range and Discovery 3/LR3. It also adaptive headlights, which with the direction of travel to the road ahead. Bi-xenon are available for even better and lower maintenance. Rear are also distinctively styled.

The supercharged version is distinguished by the use of for the perforated grille and side air black and silver Land badges, 20-inch wheels and stainless steel exhausts.

Three light, compact are offered in the Range Rover (depending on market), the most being a supercharged 287 kW (390 bhp petrol V8.

Supercharged V8 engine

engines have a strong in British sporting vehicles, Range Rover Sport programme engineer Stuart They provide smooth, big performance right across the rev while being compact and

The mighty supercharged, 4.2-litre V8 is the engine. Derived from the aspirated V8 engine also in the Range Rover Sport, the version has 30 percent more and 29 percent more torque. Yet it has the compact package and similar economy.

Acceleration time 0-100 km/h is 7.6 seconds; 0-60 mph, 7.2 seconds subject to final confirmation).

The Rover Sport s V8 supercharged is not only more compact a V10 or a V12, it has less friction and complexity.

As the supercharger is permanently to boost intake charge, the performance is present across the rev range unlike an exhaust turbocharger.

The Eaton supercharger is on top of the engine, in place of the normally induction system. Driven by a belt, the supercharger has two meshing that ram air through twin to optimise air density into the chambers. The intercoolers have own cooling radiators and there is an additional air blast oil cooler.

The profile is revised to allow the more movement to provide for the gas flow, while the fuel have been calibrated to the high flow demand of the engine.

The engine capacity is (from the 4.4-litre normally by the use of cast iron cylinder that take down the from 88.0 mm (3.46 to 86.0 mm (3.38 inches). strengthens the block by increasing the web between the cylinders. Stroke the same at 90.3 mm (3.56

The pistons have a revised profile to suit the characteristics of the engine.

The result is a capacity of 4.2 maximum power of 287 kW (390 bhp at 5750 rpm and a massive 550 Nm (410 lb ft) of This engine helps the Range Rover Sport the vehicle Land Rover has built.

Normally aspirated V8

A normally aspirated, 4.4-litre V8 engine is also available in the Rover Sport. Sharing of the features of the supercharged engine, Jaguar-derived unit is renowned for its weight, compact dimensions and

The are chain driven, while the and sprockets are of a fine pitch design using inverted offering improved refinement conventional chain drive. The operate four valves per for optimal breathing and efficiency.

One of the world s lightest V8 engines, it has a block and heads made aluminium, while alloys are in many other components to weight. The engine uses Camshaft Phasing (VCP), automatically and continuously controls timing depending on driving and outside temperature. It is controlled by an throttle, which allows mapping to change depending on conditions and provides an interface to the s Terrain Response system.

is also a limp home in the event of a system failure for a vehicle that may be used in areas.

Like the supercharged the normally aspirated V8 is made in a engine plant in Bridgend,

Compared with the Jaguar the Land Rover engines been further developed, to increase their capability Like all Land Rovers, the Rover Sport must be to tackle mountains and wade as well as cruise boulevards and The aluminium sump has been to ensure lubricant delivery at the angles likely in off-roading and oil has been increased by 18 percent.

The oil has been redesigned and oil sealing has improved for wading. Engine have been positioned as as possible to avoid damage rocks and ruts and other hazards.

Turbodiesel V6 engine

The but economical 2.7-litre turbodiesel V6 available in the Range Rover is one of the newest and most advanced in the world (not available in America and some other This latest generation, engine operates at fuel of 1650 bar typically 25 percent than previous systems. gives greater control combustion and better flow at the with benefits to fuel emissions and refinement.

In the Range Sport, the turbodiesel engine 140 kW (190 bhp) at 4000 rpm and 440 Nm (325 lb ft) of torque. Maximum is developed at only 1900 rpm for drivability and off-road capability.

The runs with a compression of 17.3:1, relatively low for a diesel. reduces heat build-up in the bowl, further improving efficiency, reducing fuel and emissions. The low compression ratio reduces engine noise.

The is fitted with a single 51 mm inches) diameter KKK turbocharger an electronically controlled Variable Turbine (VNT).

The equivalent engine uses twin but the choice of a single turbo the Land Rover unit increased torque and improves response. The turbocharger is fully to suit Land Rover requirements. The VNT optimises charged air at all engine speeds by altering the of the turbine vanes.

This widens the turbine inlet at low to improve torque and narrows it at engine speeds for better response.

The engine block is from Compacted Graphite (CGI), the first use of this in volume engine production. It strength, stiffness, light and durability, allowing this to be physically smaller than rival V6s. The inherent of CGI also improves durability and suppression.

The strength allows the to be bored directly into the casting, which removes the for cylinder liners, saving

The crankshaft is carried in four bearings, each cross-bolted six bolts to provide a solid and control vibrations. In its Land application, the crank is further by an aluminium ladder frame to the bottom of the crankcase. A steel is attached to the ladder frame.

The oil point is designed so that the can operate safely at extreme angles, and baffle plates oil surge and foaming.

Intelligent Shift automatic

All Range Rover Sport have an advanced ZF six-speed controlled automatic transmission, distributes power full-time to all wheels. One of the most advanced in the world, this ensures gear changes and superb response. Manual Command gear changing is offered, on the supercharged derivative, the engine is blipped during downchanging to the engine speed to the lower

This delivers a faster and shift.

For the Range Rover the Command Shift feature has developed to give a more feel to the change and the response of the compact gear lever is more immediate than on Land Rovers.

There is a Sport transmission mode, in an industry first allows the to blip during auto under heavy braking. helps engine braking and that the vehicle is in the optimum when leaving the bend.

In the mode, the engine holds gears for longer. When loads are detected, upshifts are delayed to allow the driver to more  feel during Torque disturbances caused by changes are avoided.

The fully intelligent shift transmission its settings depending on the driving and conditions. Aggressive driving upshifting will be delayed, to for higher revs and more A more gentle driving means upshifts will be sooner, allowing for a more driving experience.

The intelligent facility works in both and Sport modes.

The gearbox is unique to Land Rover, especially stiff. The strong sump has also been specifically for Land Rover, and superior off-road protection. The electronic control unit, by Bosch, is housed within the for superior shielding.

It communicates, by a link, with the vehicle s systems, including Terrain

Twin-speed transfer box and electronic

The Range Rover Sport has a transfer box with both (for normal conditions) and low off-road) ranges. The shift is and can be made on the move. It is unusual for a SUV to offer this low-range which enormously improves over difficult or steep

The centre differential is fully This is biases drive the front and rear axles (in conditions it is distributed 50:50) and varies torque depending on It can also be locked, to help in extreme off-roading.

This is performed automatically. An ECU controls an motor that locks the diff using a multi-plate

An electronically controlled locking It is also controlled by the centre ECU. The differentials are mounted onto the chassis, to maximise clearance, giving improved ability.

Land Rover Range Rover Sport


The Rover Sport is the best-handling, agile and most exhilarating that Land Rover has produced. Fully independent wishbone suspension is used and rear. An innovative new anti-roll Dynamic Response ensures the vehicle s attitude stays even at speed on challenging while also preserving comfort and suppleness.

The goal as all Land Rovers was the broadest of capability in the class, says programme engineer Stuart But we had to shift the centre of capability sporty driving. That is the key of this vehicle. Yet we did not want to ride comfort and refinement. And we wanted to retain excellent ability.

The Range Rover has been tuned primarily for performance. Priorities were roadholding, handling, excellent performance and tremendous driver Development testing included laps of Germany s notorious race circuit.

Air spring

The suspension uses electronically air springs, for an optimal balance responsive handling and comfort. The become firmer at high and during cornering, and are automatically compliant at lower speeds or on roads. They provide a of both worlds ability conventional steel springs, as offered in rival sporty cannot achieve.

The air springs are excellent for off-roading, partly they allow for height of the body.

Sports car-like monotube improve wheel control at speed, and give the vehicle a stable planted-to-the-road feel.


Land Rover s Dynamic Response system, a active anti-roll control, flat cornering and excellent feedback. It is standard on the supercharged and optional on the normally aspirated V8 and models.

An engine-driven pump hydraulic motors that act on the bars to alter their in response to vehicle cornering Computers measure steering and horizontal acceleration and determine the at which the vehicle will Dynamic Response then the hydraulic motors the instant the starts to roll.

Its actions are to the driver, but boost the sporting of the vehicle.

The Dynamic Response on the Range Rover Sport for a much more supple on road, and helps give the much more feel and suppleness, especially over or slightly uneven roads. It for both excellent roadholding and the suppleness which delivers feedback. But on rough surfaces and assistance is automatically reduced and maximum wheel cross-articulation in conditions.

Speed-sensitive steering

is by ZF Servotronic rack-and-pinion with power assistance. The rack is mounted directly onto the frame for improved steering

The Range Rover Sport has linear steering, to help the feel in absolute control of the says Land Rover s engineer, vehicle integrity, Cross. The speed-sensitive power allows for impressive agility at low and for superb stability at high

The steering rack is mounted of the front axle, further to the vehicle s steering response. It is mounted low to preserve the crash of the front end and is protected by a substantial member.

Adaptive Cruise

The Range Rover Sport s high-speed demeanour is further by the availability of Adaptive Cruise Radar monitoring allows the Rover Sport to maintain a set and distance from the vehicle in This system can make driving more relaxing and

Sports tourer

In keeping its role as a sports tourer, the Rover Sport is designed to supple suspension and superb refinement.

We wanted the vehicle to the best overall behaviour with an outstanding blend of refinement, agility and precision, Mike Cross. So it is equally at on smooth winding roads, long motorway distances and on roads that have and undulations.

Many of its rivals are not to drive on poor road The Range Rover Sport is to be less frenetic and more We believe it has a superior ride, is has a more comfortable cabin, and is a sports tourer that can great distances effortlessly and

Any terrain

As well as being on-road, the Range Rover is also supremely capable as expected from a Land

We build vehicles that can on almost any terrain, says director Matthew Taylor. We believe that your should not stop just the road does. Most sports SUVs can only with soft off-roading. The Rover Sport is an impressive vehicle that can also superbly in the rough.

The vehicle s Body-frame structure, as also on the new Discovery 3/LR3, is enormously and offers superb protection for electrical and hydraulic systems, as as major mechanical components.

The includes a two-speed transfer with low range electronically on the move. The air sprung suspension is adjustable, allowing the whole to be lifted clear of ruts, and rivers, and any other impediments to off-road progress. The result is far ground clearance, off-road, any sports SUV rival.

The Dynamic active anti-roll system is deactivated once the vehicle off-road, improving wheel This allows for full and movement of the suspension, as if no anti-roll were fitted. When a is detected off-road, though, the motors used in Dynamic lock the anti-roll bars, vehicle lean to allow for a traverse.

Wheels Tyres

As all Land Rover models, the tyres have multi-purpose which mean they re for both on- and off-road.

All road wheels are cast in alloy and are designed to withstand from kerbing and from obstacles. Aluminium alloy also help to disperse the generated during braking, brake fade.

The wheels been specified to accommodate the brake discs (wheel may vary by market). The entry-level is 17 inches in diameter and seven wide, while the standard is 18 inches in diameter and eight wide. A premium wheel is on certain models, and is of 19-inch and eight-inch width.

Vehicles with the V8 supercharged engine 20-inch wheels. All wheels a type profile to maximise retention in the event of deflation.

The wheel is carried on a frame under the vehicle, between the members, and is lowered using a arrangement. The mounting and the wheel contribute to the rear end crash of the vehicle.

Large Brakes

The supercharged model gets four-piston Brembo front for optimal braking performance. All get large ventilated discs and rear.

There are two different sizes offered. The supercharged and aspirated V8 models get 337 mm x 30 mm front and 350 mm x 20 mm rear discs. The diesel gets 317 mm x 30 mm front discs and 325 mm x 20 mm discs.

Normally aspirated and models get twin-piston sliding on the front brakes and single-pot on the rear.

The latest generation Bosch ABS anti-lock brakes are on the Range Rover Sport. system also provides and power for other dynamic systems fitted to the vehicle, Hill Descent Control Electronic Traction Control and Dynamic Stability Control The system incorporates Electronic Distribution (EBD) to provide braking regardless of the load of the vehicle.

Emergency Brake (EBA) provides additional to the braking system if a sudden of full braking is sensed.

The Rover Sport is fitted an Electronic Park Brake. of the park brake is by a console-mounted It is disengaged automatically when off. This device up the valuable space in the centre area that would be taken by a conventional hand mechanism.
