Land Rover considering high-peformance Range Rover Sport R-S Edition

Land Rover’s Chief of Chassis Systems David Waide has revealed that the brand is looking into a high-performance version of the next-generation Range Rover Sport. In an interview with Car Advice, Waide said that a high-performance Rover Sport is “one of the areas which the business can expand. You’ve seen this with Jaguar and its XKR-S edition. They’ve done very well with the R-S model … so there’s the ability to do those sorts of things with Land Rover product.”

The model will be a little more extreme as the Range Rover Sport Supercharged and will carry the R-S badge.

Waide went onto say that the model wouldn’t be a competitor to the Porsche Cayenne GTS. “If you compare [the XKR-S] with the Porsche equivalents it’s not as sporty; it’s as quick, it sounds fantastic, but it’s also more comfortable.”

Power could come from the Jaguar XKR-S’ supercharged 5.0 liter V8 making 550-hp.
