Land Rover’s world-leading reputation for innovation has brought to market a vehicle which offers stunning acceleration, high speed capability, safety, stability and refinement which can be used in any and all types of weather and terrain. This is the first vehicle in its class to adopt a lightweight all-aluminium platform and body which delivers a sleek and contemporary appearance without sacrificing its credentials as a high-ability SUV. The second generation Range Rover Sport is a bold evolution of the iconic original that has been designed to appeal to younger affluent consumers with dynamic lifestyles.
Sanpong Chuenroj, Managing Director – City Automobiles Co. Ltd., said “The All-New Range Rover Sport is the ultimate premium sports SUV- the fastest, most agile and responsive Land Rover ever. The original car have been sold 415,000 units worldwide from 2005-2013, and now the second generation brings ‘More Range Rover, More Sport’ – its defining concept which will drive strong sales following the Motor Expo. The new car serves its luxury sports market with a driving console that brings the driver closer to the action, plus our signature Command Driving Position which emphasises driver control and sense of occasion. This car is faster and more agile than most luxury SUVs, hitting 0-100 km/h in just five seconds (V8) – that’s quick for even a lightweight sports car. The SDV6 3.0 Diesels and LR-V8 5.0 Supercharged engines will be available in Thailand from 7,7500,000 – 10,050,000 THB.”
