some of them look very posh but make no sense in what they talk about it is going around in circles about some BS

anyone can enhance their vehicles capability by installing the winch and protection and roof mounted light possibly a few times cheaper then this package

and who would take V8 for overlanding trip as shown in the clip with crap MPG lol

if you want a rocket why would you put an anchor on it such as heavy winch
it is confused dot com and still looks ugly as Censored

Having watched this launch, I walked away disappointed. It looks like LR have added all the rugged styling clues they can think of to make this thing look better. But it doesn’t. Even matt paint can’t disguise how silly this looks. You couldn’t get any further away from utilitarian. JMHO

Nice engine though...

This to me looks like they are very confused - surely you either want all the good offroad gear with fairly utilitarian interior and the 3ltr SDV6, or, all the go faster stuff (big alloys,etc) and the 5Ltr supercharged motor (but this would nudge into RRS territory)

I quite like it. They've filled in some of the blank areas of body panels with design details and made it look a whole lot nicer.

What tyres does it have ? I 've struggled to find high speed rated chunkies for my supercharged RR ... so wondering what the SVX ones are given the V8 in it. ( and an assumption its limited to 130mph )

Believe it's limited to 100 mph Shocked

How long until LR put the supercharged motor in the standard D5 further muddying the offerings (RRS, RR)?
