I think anyone who has previously bought a new Range Rover is getting an invite. Mine came through the post today. Looking at the pics someone posted, its not too much of a change to go in & be subjected to the hard sell. Will probably have a look when all the who ha has calmed down, (probably a couple of day's Rolling with laughter ) Range Rover Sport: Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe: 992 Porsche Carrera 4S

Not sure what it is but Gerry can't do back ends (..... and that's not an euphemism ! )

Don't know what it is with the man... terrible that is.

2013 Range Rover Sport 4.4 V8 Baltic Blue

Howdy.... I was at an LR launch for a few long standing customers 2 weeks ago (Apparently each dealer had 2 invitations for customers), where they showed us the cars that are starting to appear in pictures, plus plenty of other bits...so it's no surprise people took sneaky pictures. .

The 2 different versions are the standard and SVO version....which has a significantly altered bodykit, which admittedly, looks a bit odd in this reddy colour.

That said, it went down well and almost every person there put in orders. Now

Correct. Each dealer gets to invite 2 of their customers to this event. These customers can then get first dibs to order. Mines already in given the chip shortage and an anticipated new car launch it makes sense. Will probably be a rare beast for the first 6-9 months as long as it works Rolling with laughter

Oh and should hold value fairly well too.

Indeed....it was a good event actually. Bit different from the public unveiling on the 26th.

One chap ordered 5, there and then.

As you say, they should hold value pretty well at first and will be relatively few on the road for the first few months.

RRSMan - which did you go for? Now

Vile rear, right up there with the offset numberplate Disco. Do the designers not have eyes?
I need not worry, will be about 6 to 8 years before I could afford one anyway. RRS HSE Dynamic SDV6 2014

HI RRSMAN

When you say Autobiog PHEV, was there any mention of a new longer life PHEV+ version that's been muted, or is it still 30ish miles range PHEV ?

Thanks in advance !

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Santorini Black

That rear end is not nice at all!

Really hope they don't do something similar with the RRS.

With that being said RRSman is right, even if it falls apart on him he'll still be able to sell it for good money.

I'm at the end of my tether with JLR QC so I'm not taking anymore risks with their products until I'm sure they're better built, which I don't see happening anytime soon tbh. RRS SVR MY22

And will it be mated to a 6 cylinder engine (preferably diesel) rather than that thrashy little 4 cylinder petrol engine which annoys the hell out of me every time I put my foot down in my P400e?
