Land Rover has prepared a special version of its Range Rover Sport for the Goodwood Festival of Speed. LR calls the new changes collectively as the Stealth Pack. One might expect this to be an understated and docile version of the RR Sport. But, the car looks like a Sport version of the RR Sport. The Stealth Pack is available on the HSE Dynamic and the Autobiography Dynamic variants.
The Stealth Pack brings blackened head-lamps and tail-lamps
Overall though, the new version has massive street cred- whether Range Rover owners like it or not. The Stealth addition adds satin black finish on the grille, fog lamp bezel, ORVM cowl, bonnet and fender vents and tailgate finisher. It also has blackened head-lamps and tail-lamps.

The infatuation with black doesn't end here. Even the alloys have been blackened out and can be ordered either in a 21-inch 9-spoke or a 22-inch 5-spoke guise. The engines though remain unchanged- two V8s (510PS petrol and 339PS diesel) and a V6 (292PS diesel). The Stealth Edition can be ordered in 18 different colours and a variety of interior trims.
The Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack will be on display at the Land Rover stand during the Goodwood FOS
The Stealth Pack can be ordered at a premium of £1700 (Rs 1.74 lakh) and £2500 (Rs. 2.56 lakh) respectively for the variant with 21 and 22 inch wheels. The Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack will be on display at the Land Rover stand during the Goodwood FOS.

Stealth finish on non-reflective headlamp and tail lamp surfaces along with a choice of 21" 9-spoke, or 22" 5-spoke wheels, in satin black finish with wheel nuts in gloss black, further distinguishes the vehicle.

The new Range Rover Sport is the most dynamic Land Rover yet, providing owners with an agile and responsive driving experience on or off-road and has won more than 50 global awards since its launch.
Every Range Rover Sport is crafted using the highest quality materials with carefully selected colours and textures to enhance the model's blend of luxury with a sporting character. Available in a choice of 18 exterior colours, designed specifically to complement the huge range of interior leathers, wood veneers and metallic detailing, Range Rover Sport customers can create the ultimate bespoke SUV.
Range Rover Sport customers have a choice of three engines the 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol with 510PS with a 0-60 time of 5.0 seconds, the 4.4 SDV8 diesel with 339PS and 700Nm of torque and the 3.0l SDV6 diesel with 292PS delivering 199g/km and 32.5mpg (combined). It has been engineered to deliver dramatically improved on-road driving dynamics, with more connected and agile handling, complemented by enhanced ride and refinement. The lightweight aluminium suspension is fully-independent, with wide-spaced double-wishbones at the front and an advanced multi-link layout at the rear. Off road capability has not been ignored and still retains class-leading wheel travel (260mm front and 272mm rear) and provides exceptional wheel articulation of 546mm to deal with the toughest conditions.
The upgraded air suspension system automatically varies between two ride heights, while the ground-breaking Terrain Response® 2 system automatically selects the most suitable terrain programme.
