New 394bhp Range Rover Sport HST special edition announced

The new special edition Range Rover Sport HST arrives with a new powertrain and exclusive interior and exterior trim

Jaguar Land Rover had pulled the wraps off a special edition Range Rover Sport HST. The new model comes with an all-new 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six mild-hybrid engine, as well as a range of exclusive interior and exterior trim. On sale now, the HST is priced from £81,250.

The 3.0-litre straight-six turbo engine, which generates 394bhp and 550Nm of torque, is assisted by an electrically-driven compressor via a 48V mild-hybrid system. As a result, the HST will sprint from 0-62mph in just 6.2 seconds, while its top speed stands at 140mph.

Thanks to the mild hybrid system, Jaguar Land Rover claims the Sport HST can deliver economy figures of 30.5mpg and emissions ratings of 213g/km of CO2. The system can also recover energy using regenerative braking and store it in the battery for later use by the electric motor, such as when pulling away from a standing start.

The new powertrain is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system. Like the standard Range Rover Sport, the HST comes with adjustable air springs, active dampers and Land Rover’s “Terrain Response 2” system, which “reads” the terrain being driven across and adjusts the chassis and drivetrain accordingly.

Outside, the special edition Range Rover Sport gets one of two alloy wheel designs, a choice of paint colours, red brake calipers, bespoke badging and carbon fibre trim for the bonnet, front grille, side vents and tailgate.

The interior of the HST is treated to a set of 16-way adjustable front seats, satin chrome shift paddles, unique badging on the fascia and a suede-trimmed steering wheel and gear lever. In addition, buyers get a range of driver assistance technology including adaptive cruise control and high speed emergency braking.
