Although the Range Rover Evoque is enjoying positive reports from the media and ever-increasing popularity worldwide, Tata-subsidiary Land Rover isn't resting on its laurels if the whispers, at least according to worldcarfans, are true.
Rumour has it the Gaydon, Warwickshire-based manufacturer is hard at work developing a sportier version of the Evoque, which could make use of a bigger engine sourced from sister company Jaguar. The would-be powerplant is believed to be the company's 3,0-litre supercharged V6 – which already is the heart of the new F-Type sportscar.
Available in two states of tune (279 kW/460 N.m and 250 kW/450 N.m), the supercharged V6 is a tasty prospect, but other reports suggest the 2,0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit already doing service in the Evoque is the likely candidate that will power a "hot"version. Those same murmurings also mention a power hike to approximately 224 kW.
No matter what the new version will be named, or what engine will power its four wheels, we're sure it'll add weight to the Evoque's successes.
