What you guys think about new RR Sport?

I kinda like it. it looks nice from the front but back is hilarious IMO... I'd say well done Land Rover...

The supercharged V8 Range Rovers are pretty fast. I had to look up the specs for it after running one last month & was quite surprised. I only pulled a car length on him in my C63 from 20-60mph, but I'm sure it would have been more if we kept going, still I had a huge "What the hell" look on my face

Not a fan of the exterior. Especially the back. Looks too cheap for the money they are asking.

They are around 13.0 flat. I don't have exacts but I know it runs neck and neck with my 13 s4.

The RR has an incredibly light body for what it is and low center of gravity for an suv. That paired with the 500+ hp makes for a quick car below 110.

Not bad for an SUV, but still overpriced. Runs about the same as my daily.

Ehh by that logic most beamers are overpriced. I mean the corvette is a better bang for your buck among other cars.

Not all about speed etc.. I'm not big on suvs myself but if you want a sporty suv there isn't much that will compete with the RR - at least at that price.

Yep. It even handles pretty nicely. I'm not saying its my kind of car (just not an suv person). But for somebody that wants a sporty suv, this gen is pretty impressive. It's even more impressive if you compare it to the last gen if yo udrove that extensively (which I did). We are talking leaps and bounds better than the previous gen.

There's a reason why they sold out of the first model year and decided to start the second model year early. This SUV is very very nice for what it is.

Didn't say it was all about speed. Regardless, they are not enough for the $ IMO.
