Spy photos of the Range Rover Sport wearing the least camouflage to date show the car’s wider body and more sloping roofline.

AutoGuide’s spy photographers caught the car during cold weather testing today. The performance luxury SUV is expected to come with both diesel and gasoline engines, although the U.S. market is likely to only get the gas version if history is an indicator.

The V8 is expected to be sourced from Jaguar’s shelves — likely the same supercharged engine found in the XKR with 510 hp.

Official details are still unavailable, but customers can expect this new generation to handle much better than the outgoing model. At least it seems very likely given the strikingly improved driving dynamics in the all-new 2013 Range Rover.

Land Rover will likely debut the new vehicle during the Frankfurt Auto Show late this year, although an official debut has yet to be announced.
