Range Rover Sport spotted
Land Rover released a teaser image of the new car earlier in the week, but the leaked photo appears not to be an official shot.
Range Rover has previously told What Car? that the new car will come with five- and seven-seat versions for the first time and will share the bigger Range Rover's aluminium architecture and new engines, including the forthcoming diesel hybrid version.
Engineers have also said that it will be more luxurious than the current model and feel more agile and 'car-like' to drive.
The official unveiling will be on the eve of the New York motor show at the end of the month. The launch will feature a drive through the city's Manhattan district and will be streamed live on the internet.
