Here are latest photos showing another prototype of the new Range Rover Sport during hot weather testing in California. The car is expected to go on sale in 2005.
It is a shorter and sportier version of the current Range Rover with more dynamic handling, and is set to rival the likes of the BMW X5 and Lexus RX 300.
At first a four-door only, the Range Rover Sport will add a two-door soon after its debut. It will be powered by a 2.7-liter diesel V-6 with 200 hp, which will also be used in the Jaguar S-Type beginning this summer. The 270-hp 4.2-liter V-8 will also be offered as it is in the LR3, and there may be other Jaguar-derived V-6 and V-8 engines.
