The new RR Sport, however, will ditch the old steel chassis for the new Range Rover's aluminum construction, helping it shed precious pounds in improving its driving dynamics. That could make the new Range Rover Sport a perfect starting point for a more performance-focused model that would likely target the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG
, BMW X5 M
and Porsche Cayenne
GTS, albeit in a less aggressive form that would seek to blend performance and comfort. Given that the supercharged version of the new Range Rover accelerates from 0-62 in 5.4 seconds, a lighter, more powerful Sport R-S model could be looking at a sprint time in the fours.
