The Range Rover Sport (L494) is a luxury-type sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced in the United Kingdom by Land Rover, a subsidiary of Tata Motors. The first generation was in production since 2005, and was replaced by the second generation Sport in 2013.
The Range Rover Sport made its first appearance in late 2004, in concept car guise as the Range Stormer. This was a low-slung, short wheelbase 3-door coupe that depicted a significant aberration in design brief for a Land Rover. The marque’s first complete concept car sported split-folding gullwing doors, one-piece skeletal seats and 22 inch alloys. The Range Rover Sport was comparably of much more conservative design featuring five doors and a wheelbase hardly shorter than that of the Range Rover Vogue.
