    percent more heat for fast catalyst warm up and substantially reduced emissions On the supercharged engine a sixth generation twin vortex system TVS supercharger feeds air through twin intercoolers water cooled by their own discrete cooling circuit The high helix rotor design improves the supercharger s thermodynamic efficiency and does away with traditional supercharger whine making it almost inaudible Air is delivered through twin air boxes which reduce flow loss and are highly efficient Mechanically the new supercharger and its intercoolers are neatly packaged in the V of the engine helping reduce engine height A number of other design features include the industry first torque actuated variable camshaft timing on all four cams Unlike conventional systems these are actuated by the positive and negative torques generated by the opening and closing of the valves rather than oil pressure reducing energy consumption Torque and power is also optimised by a variable inlet manifold which changes the length of its eight inlet tracts The manifold switches between a 680mm inlet tract to provide high torque at low revs and a 350mm inlet path allowing maximum power at high revs The precise position is optimised throughout the rev range at all times The engine also features a unique reverse flow cooling system where coolant passes through the cylinder heads before the block This allows the heads to remain cooler and the knock threshold is pushed further back for greater efficiency On the naturally aspirated engine only cam profile switching CPS selects either a profile suitable for low speed running or another which gives increased lift for high performance This provides the Range Rover Sport with exceptional low end torque to negotiate demanding terrain and allows it to become fleet of foot when conditions allow An oil to water heat exchanger also transfers heat from the coolant to the engine oil These features promote faster engine warm up for reduced emissions and enables the cabin to warm up faster too Frictional losses have been reduced by the use of Diamond Like Carbon Coating DLC on some components an intelligent oil pump pressure relief valve PRV to optimise oil pressure and the use of lower viscosity 5W 20 oil further reduces parasitic losses without compromising durability The 5 0 LR V8 engines have become an industry benchmark since they were introduced last year thanks to their dazzling performance and extremely high efficiency For a performance SUV they are simply without peer and make ideal power units for the Range Rover Sport said Nick Rogers Director of Range Rover Programmes 6 speed automatic transmission responsive and refined Both the petrol and diesel engines are equipped with the ultra refined ZF HP28 6 speed automatic transmission Its characteristics have been optimised by Land Rover engineers to provide the same class leading response and rapid refined shifts on all engines Their superior power and torque characteristics make it possible to actuate the transmission s lock up clutches much earlier in each gear reducing slip through the hydraulic torque converter optimising both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions Advanced chassis brakes and suspension As standard on the Range Rover Sport 5 0 LR V8 supercharged petrol and as on option on the 245PS 3 0 LR TDV6 only an Adaptive Dynamics system is available which operates in conjunction with the existing Dynamic Response system With Adaptive Dynamics DampTronic Valve Technology replaces conventional dampers and monitors damper pressure 500 times a second continuously adapting to surface conditions and driving style thanks to an active valve technology The chassis is complemented by high performance braking systems which include four piston opposed calliper front disc brakes on the diesel models and lightweight aluminium six piston Brembo callipers for the supercharged models A variable ratio steering rack improves stability in high speed cruising and increases driver involvement on twisting roads The high performance character of the Range Rover Sport chassis is further emphasised by the Roll Stability Control system which responds to steering inputs from the driver and intervenes by braking individual wheels if the possibility of a rollover is detected Off road ability even further improved for 2011 When it comes to off road ability Land Rover vehicles are acknowledged as setting the standards for other to follow For 2011 there are two additional functions Hill Start Assist and Gradient Acceleration Control Hill Start Assist retains the initial driver generated brake pressure long enough for the foot to move from brake pedal to throttle without the car rolling backwards The brake is released after a sufficient time has elapsed or when the engine is supplying enough torque to move the car up the hill Hill Start Assist is always available not selectable and neither is its operation indicated to the driver Gradient Acceleration Control is designed to provide safety cover on severe gradients when the driver does not have Hill Descent Control engaged By pressurising the brake system Gradient Acceleration Control slows the car to a limit determined by the throttle position when the car is descending the slope in the driver s intended direction of travel This includes descending the slope forwards in drive or rearwards in reverse Otherwise such as descending while facing up the gradient with Drive selected Gradient Acceleration Control restricts speed to 5km h 3 1mph for up to 20 seconds allowing the driver to regain proper control These new features enhance the outstanding ability of the Range Rover Sport off road while continuing to deliver an intoxicating driving experience on road They also deliver an added layer of safety and support to drivers who want to discover what their vehicle is really capable of said Nick Veale Vehicle Engineering Manager A new Limited Edition and three new colours A new Limited Edition joins the Range Rover Sport line up for 2011 as an alternative to the Autobiography Sport which continues unchanged for 2011 Available on the 3 0 TDV6 and 5 0 V8 HSE derivatives the Range Rover Sport LE is sumptuously equipped with three unique interior
