Range Rover Sport GT Limited Edition – Wait, what?

I’m not sure how I missed this new trim level for the Range Rover Sport in 2011.  First I remember reading this press release but for some reason overlooked the GT part.  Then I actually saw one at my local dealer a month or two ago, but thought it was just some unique exhaust package.  Maybe if it actually had a GT badge I would have investigated further.  And finally, it’s on the actual Land Rover USA Range Rover USA website, which is usually the last site to get any of the latest updates.  Although as the norm for the site, even though the other Sport models get the proper picture to go with their descriptions, the page for the GT Sport does not show an actual GT Sport but what looks like a regular HSE.  You would think a company this large with really just 5 versions of this model in the US could maybe put up a picture of it on their official website?

And the big question for me is – is the Exterior Design Pack still coming or is this how people in the US can will be able to get it at all?

Anyway, the press release below is the latest on the 2011 Range Rover Sport and the new GT Limited Edition.  From what I can see, the GT is nicely optioned HSE with unique styling cues – it seems with a name like GT, the supercharged engine would have been a nice addition too, but I guess they didn’t want it competing with the Autobiography option package, which apparently is no longer limited.  I know I’m late on stuff sometimes, but this delay was ridiculous.

Enjoy.

Land Rover launches the new 2011 Defender X-Tech Limited Edition

A new Defender limited edition is always fun but bittersweet because I know we’ll never see it in the US, at least not in it’s current iteration.  After doing a complete restore on 1971 Series IIA(www.roverhaul.com), it’s the little things on the Defender that really catch my eye.  Even with 40 years separating my 1971 and this 2011, the 2011 still has visible pop-rivets – very cool!  Even that “upgraded interior” – it’s just so classic Land Rover – window controls in the center!
