2013 Range Rover Sport debuts with Limited Edition models
Land Rover has unveiled their entire 2013 model lineup at the Los Angeles Auto Show and have revealed two new Limited Edition Range Rover Sport models for the U.S. market. Also making its U.S. auto show debut is the all-new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover, the world’s first all-aluminum SUV. In addition to the two new Limited Edition models, the new 2013 Range Rover Sport will feature new exterior treatments, new interior options and a new towing package on the high-performance model.
2013 Range Rover Sport highlights
The Range Rover Sport received new exterior styling for the 2012 model year, and to compliment those changes, the 2013 Sport will feature some new exterior treatments that will set it apart from the crowd. The new 2013 Sport will be featured with a new five-spoke cast alloy wheel design in Sparkle Silver that will be standard on the Range Rover Sport Supercharged.
And to show off the new stylish wheels even more, there will be red Brembo brake calipers that can be seen through the new five spokes. They will come standard on the Supercharged model, but customers who don't want to be so conspicuous can opt for black high performance brakes at no additional cost. There will also be a wider choice of interior color combinations and a new optional towing package available on the new Range Rover Sport for the first time.
The Supercharged will still feature an Eaton supercharger that bumps up the horsepower of the Jaguar sourced V8 to 510, with 461 foot-pounds of torque. It also adds a sport-tuned suspension, adaptive Xenon headlights with washers, paddle shifters, a 480-watt stereo with Sirius satellite radio, bright mesh grille and side vents, exhaust extensions, and its own Oxford leathers.
2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Limited Edition
The big news at the show was the addition of two new limited edition models that will be added for 2013. The Supercharged Limited Edition and GT Limited Edition will be available for the first time in limited numbers. The two new models will be available for U.S. customers and will come in two color choices.
Land Rover hasn’t released detailed information on the new limited edition models, but the 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Limited Edition for the U.S. market, will feature a combination of new luxurious interior appointments and exterior design changes that will differentiate it over the standard Supercharged model. There will only be 300 units being produced in Santorini Black, and 200 units in Fuji White for the 2013 Supercharged Limited Edition.
2013 Range Rover Sport GT Limited Edition
The 2013 Range Rover Sport GT Limited Edition also offers unique luxury interior and distinctive exterior design details. Land Rover says the HSE specification vehicle will also get “other popular equipment” that will set it apart from the standard model. Outside, that will include an extended rear roof spoiler, unique rear chrome exhaust treatments and 20-inch black five spoke alloy wheels.
Inside the luxury cabin, it will feature steering wheel mounted shift paddles, a premium LOGIC 7 audio system with satellite radio and HD Radio. A limited number of 450 will be built in Santorini Black, with an additional 300 units being produced in Fuji White.
Land Rover hasn’t released pricing on the sporty 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged and Range Rover Sport GT Limited Editions, but we know the limited number will be coming to U.S. showrooms early in 2013.
