July 2012 – The distinctive Range Rover Sport RED Limited Edition makes its debut in South Africa this winter offering greater exclusivity in an already prestigious package.
Powerful and elegant, the Range Rover Sport RED Limited Edition goes one step further with a combination of exterior treatments and interior detailing, delivering greater levels of refinement and customer appeal.
Based on the 5.0 HSE Supercharger, the Range Rover Sport RED Limited Edition comes in Firenze Red, Orkney Grey, Fuji White and Santorini Black. The Santorini Black mesh grille is highlighted by a Noble (satin chrome) bezel and black surround. Bonnet badges and tailgate finisher are in Atlas Silver (gloss silver finish) and the rear 'SPORT' badge is striking in Salsa Red. The fender vents sport a similarly bright red logo bar set against a Santorini Black grille, finished by an Atlas Silver surround.
Red Brembo® brake calipers offer striking appeal together with the unique 20-inch alloy wheels, adding the finishing touches to a dynamic and distinctive look for this Limited Edition model.
“The Range Rover Sport RED Limited Edition adds an extra dimension to what is already one of the most dynamic vehicles in the premium SUV class. The striking exterior and subtle interior treatments, unique alloy wheels and beautiful upholstery detailing will appeal to customers for whom exclusivity is important,” says John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.
The interior features a new carbon fibre veneer and is finished in the HSE Ebony colour way with a choice of four dedicated seat trim styles. Seat inserts can be chosen in Pimento Red, Cirrus, Lunar Grey or Ebony with contrast stitching. The ‘SPORT’ logo embossed on headrests add that finishing touch which is also picked up on the carpet mats where the logo is embroidered in red to match the striking exterior design cues.
The Range Rover Sport RED Limited Edition is powered by the 375kW supercharged LR-V8 engine combined with the ultra-refined and responsive ZF HP28 6-speed automatic gearbox delivering 625Nm of torque.
Chassis, suspension and brakes remain amongst the most advanced in the world providing the Range Rover Sport with uncompromised driver refinement and breadth of capability both on and off road. A wide range of e_Terrain features also ensure peerless performance is delivered in the most efficient way possible.
