"The Range Rover Sport was substantially revised in 2011 with major powertrain enhancements and raised equipment levels to reinforce its outstanding breadth of capability. This year we're going one step further, offering even more choice with some great new colour combinations and detail improvements to redefine the Range Rover Sport's class-leading levels of comfort and customer appeal," says John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.

To complement the exterior design changes updated at the previous model year, a striking new five-spoke cast alloy wheel design in Sparkle Silver and five new body colours provide customers with even greater levels of choice when it comes to enhancing the look of their Range Rover Sport: Barolo Black, Barossa, Causeway Grey, Havana and Mariana Black are all introduced for 2013. Customers opting for a Supercharged model will discover stunning Red Brembo™ brake callipers fitted as standard.

The interior specifications offer two new interior trim combinations allowing customers to choose a dark upper cabin environment with lighter coloured seats or the opposite way round.
