Range Rover Sport

Looking simply GANGSTA :-) The Range Rover Sport.

Wikipedia ... The Range Rover Sport is a mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by Land Rover since the summer of 2005. It shares its platform with the Land Rover Discovery (LR3 in North America) rather than the larger Range Rover.
Land Rover calls the vehicle a sports tourer. It slots below the Discovery/LR3 in size and has seating for five.
The top-level Sport is powered by a supercharged 390 PS (287 kW/390 hp) 4.2 L AJ-V8, making it the second most powerful vehicle in the company's history except for the larger Range Rover Vogue SE supercharged (450 bhp (340 kW), 420 lb·ft (569 N·m)).
A normally-aspirated 4.4 L version is available with 300 PS (220 kW/295 hp). Due to lack of popularity the normally aspirated V8 was dropped from the UK market in 2007, leaving the supercharged model as the sole Petrol model on sale, which has a top speed standing at an electronically limited 130 mph (209 km/h). It has Brembo brakes at the front to improve stopping distances due to the unusually heavy weight (5,866 lb (2,661 kg)) of the vehicle.
The TDV6 turbodiesel engine of 190 hp (140 kW) is available outside the North American market as is the 272 hp (203 kW) TDV8.
