The Range Rover Sport HST, priced from £81,250, uses a 395bhp in-line six that replaces the old V6 petrol. It’s said to offer more performance and greater refinement, while at the same time improving fuel economy and emissions.
The unit features an electric supercharger, able to spool up to 120,000rpm in half a second to, the firm claims, “virtually eliminate” lag from the twin-scroll turbocharger. The motor itself produces 406lb ft of peak torque.
It’s also the first Jaguar Land Rover production model to on sale with a mild-hybrid system, as part of the firm’s plan to offer an electrified variant on every model launched from 2020. The recently revealed Evoque also features the tech, but it's not yet on sale.
