RANGE ROVER SPORT LEAKED UNDISGUISED

New Range Rover Sport revealed undisguised by US window tint firm


So, you run a window tinting company, and a big-name car manufacturer apparently gives you a top-secret, pre-production prototype to tint for a top-secret, pre-production TV commercial. Whatís the first thing you do when youíve done the job? Take some pictures and post them in a public forum, of course!

Things to regret...

Thatís been the logic of this happy chappy. Going by the username of Ďthe art of tintí, he posted these shots of what would seem to be the new Range Rover Sport on window tinting forum, adding that heíd just tinted it on Land Roverís behalf for a TV commercial. Given that Land Rover has only just released its first teasers of the new car and is planning on a reasonable bit of build up to the carís official unveiling in just over a weekís time, itís reasonable to assume that this was not officially sanctioned. Oops.

Still, the new pictures do at least give us a chance to have a good gawp at the new car. Ignore the tints, of course, and as we suspected, it looks to be a reasonably attractive blend of new Range Rover and Evoque cues. Engine-wise, we can expect a line-up similar to the Range Roverís, with the possible additions of a hybrid drivetrain and a 2.0-litre diesel mooted too.

Yup... it's definitely a Sport...
