Land Rover wants to introduce faster, higher performance orientated models to the current Range Rover lineup that includes the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and the Evoque.

According to a report from AutoExpress, a Range Rover Sport RS is currently under development. The report went on to report that the Director for Range Rover, Nick Rodgers, hinted a new addition in the ranks.

“We’ve got a pair of vehicles that have got great potential," he said. "It’s too early to say any more but put it this way, we don’t get any customers saying their cars are too fast. We have great ambition and we won’t disappoint.”

The Range Rover Sport RS will use the same Supercharged V8 from the Range Rover Sport but will have a higher power output mimicking the Jaguar XK-RS at 542 bhp and 680Nm of torque. Power will distributed amongst all four wheels.

The Evoque will also get a sporty version. However, there will be limits that Range Rover must be careful while tinkering with the Evoque otherwise this seems like a good idea. For now, expect the upcoming cabriolet and special edition versions coming soon.

The new Range Rover has made a major impact on the automotive industry and over the years has become a car the motoring world respects and anticipates for whenever a new model is announced.
