The model, which can be seen testing at the Nurburgring, is believed to be one of the first models to come from JLR's new Special Operations Division.

Destined to crown the Sport range, reports suggest the performance Range Rover will get more power from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, the same unit found in Jaguar's XKR-S, tuned to at least 542bhp. Other models using that engine include the XFR-S Sportbrake and the XJR.

By comparison, the most powerful version of the standard Range Rover Sport has 510bhp, and can reach 60mph in five seconds with a top speed of 155mph. Sources suggest Land Rover is looking for a 0-62mph time of around 4.5 seconds for the new model.
