Land Rover Unveil 2010 Range Rover Sport with all-new 510hp V8 Engine
Happily, I see the most changes given to the RRS. The interior is far beyond what it used to be in both design and apparent quality and the subtle changes to the exterior are quite classy. The changes to the RR are not as numerous, but still quite nice (like the leather wrapped roof). I can't say I'm so impressed by the new 5.0sc engine, however. It seems competitive in its numbers but as their previous 400hp engine illustrated, numbers aren't everything. It won't compete with a Cayenne Turbo, ML63 or X5M, BUT, it should be a welcomed improvement for the RR crowd! . love the interior on the range rover sport, marked improvement over the current interior, i had an RRS for about three weeks and interior was a huge disappointment it felt cheap compared to the range rover, but the new one is sexy and sporty and fits the look of the car alot more. not a fan of the range rover though like i said on the piece on the new lr4 disco they look to much alike for my tastes .There's no question technology has increased in these. However, I'm concerned quality may have slipped some in the process. The new switchgear looks questionable. Those big, shiny, hard buttons appear to be a haptic nightmare. I can only guess from the pics. I can't wait to get in one and start touching everything...
the newly launched 2010 model year Land Rover Range Rover Sport will be using the new 3.0-litre twin turbo diesel and the 5.0-litre supercharged petrol.

The 3.0-litre V6 twin turbo diesel produces 245PS and maximum torque of 600Nm. This is a detuned version of the 275PS Jaguar unit but torque remains the same. Land Rover says it will deliver 500Nm of torque from idle in 500 milliseconds. It returns a fuel consumption figure of 30.7 mpg* (9.2 l/100 km) on the EU combined cycle.
The 5.0-litre supercharged on the other hand makes a hectic 510PS and 625Nm of torque. That puts it squarely in the midst of performance SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG. Performance figures are not yet provided but you can rest assured that it will be quite rapid. It has a stiffened suspension system and Brembo brakes. Both powerplants use a 6-speed ZF automatic gearbox.
A few changes have been made to the exterior. A new front bumper with redesigned wings is fitted. Also included are LED headlights, two-stripe LED indicators, colour-coded door mirrors, a new two-bar grille and new rear light clusters.
nice goodbye before the new one comes in. Some one will buy it instead of waiting 3 minutes for the new version. My Boss bought the ol' RRA with the promise from the dealers that the limited edition will hold it's price, blah, blah... if only!
