Last week we reported that the all-new 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport will be revealed in New York on the eve of the 2013 New York Auto Show by making a live drive through Manhattan, on March 26th. The ground-breaking event will also be broadcast live to audiences around the world via an internet microsite. The debut of the new Range Rover Sport will be a first-ever live drive through the streets of New York City and a launch film will be produced and part of the live reveal sequence.
An iconic British actor will be featured
Land Rover has just announced that an iconic British actor will be filmed alongside the new Sport as it makes its global debut. They did not reveal who the iconic British actor will be, but we are wondering if it could be one of the famous James Bond stars. Land Rover says the actor will be a “very special and very British Land Rover ambassador.”
Land Rover is also working with a Hollywood director and production company to create the unique reveal of the 2014 Range Rover Sport. The New York launch will be revealed both to a live audience in Manhattan and via a global online broadcast. New York city is the largest Range Rover Sport market in the world, and is a strategic place for Land Rover to make the unique reveal.
Lightweight and more fuel-efficient
John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director said, "The all-new Range Rover Sport is highly anticipated. The new Sport will not only be the most dynamic Land Rover to date but also the most technology packed and it's new, all-aluminum lightweight architecture results in reduced CO2 and improved fuel economy. I look forward to sharing full details on March 26, 2013."
The 2014 Range Rover Sport is all-new and will feature Land Rover’s high-strength aluminum unibody architecture. The new Sport will shed a few pounds and should be the fastest, most responsive and agile vehicle Land Rover has ever produced. Edwards went on to say, "The all-new Range Rover Sport takes the model to another level. It is Land Rover's most dynamic vehicle yet and showcases the best of British design, engineering and technological innovation."
