The next-generation Range Rover Sport has been spied once again, this time at the Nurburgring.

Since the last spied photos, some of the camouflage seems to have been removed, giving us a clearer look at the new front grille and air intakes.

It has the classic Range Rover grille with a Land Rover badge sitting in the lower corner, as well as upper and lower air intakes with separate side vents too.

This new-generation Range Rover Sport SVR will still receive a V8 engine, but the current supercharged mill is expected to be discarded.

Instead, the next SVR is understood to be powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 sourced from BMW.

This twin-turbo 4.4-litre BMW V8 produces up to 467kW of power in its most powerful form, outperforming Jaguar Land Rover’s supercharged V8 which puts out 423kW in the current Range Rover Sport SVR.

The engine is already used in many BMW models including the M550i xDrive and M8 Competition, although with different tunes.

It’s also reportedly going to be used in the upcoming Defender SVR as well.

Underneath, the new Range Rover Sport SVR will ride on a variation of the Jaguar Land Rover MLA architecture.

Our spy photographer still predicts the new Range Rover Sport will move to slimmer, more horizontal tail lights like those on the Velar and Evoque.

Inside, we expect to see the latest Pivi Pro infotainment system, with an array of widescreen displays, configurable options, and over-the-air updates.

The next-generation Range Rover Sport will be available with plug-in hybrid and all-electric powertrains, along with 48V mild-hybrid petrol and diesel variants.

This new-generation Range Rover Sport should be unveiled around the same time as the next-generation flagship Range Rover.

The current Range Rover Sport has been on sale in Australia since 2013.

Land Rover has said it will reveal six all-electric variants by 2026, with the first debuting in 2024.

It isn’t yet certain if these electric models will be standalone vehicles or adaptations of existing models like the Defender.
