New range Rover spotted being tested.

Out for a ride today and we pulled in for a coffee next to this new Range Rover.



Got talking to the driver (he said he works for Jaguar Land Rover). This one is the 3.0 V6 Diesel 8 speed auto. he's doing mileage test on it and so far he's getting 37mpg average. The 5.0V8 Supercharged one they were also testing pulled away before I got the camera out, but the driver floored it and it sounded incredible.

The chap said they are working on a 2.0 V6 Petrol which is good for 30mpg. He said it's very nice and plenty powerful enough and should be available soon after the launch of the new model, probably Jan/Feb.

Interestingly, this one had notes written all over it in sharpie.
