    No V8 in the new RRS

    Got a breathless email from Land Rover yesterday extolling the virtue of the new RRS. No V8 of any description listed in the offerings

    According to the advertorial in this morning's SMH (Drive), the BMW sourced twin turbo V8s are coming next year, however, " A select number of P530 First Edition petrol models - with the twin turbo v8 - will reach Australia this year as a 'collectors offering', though details and prices are yet to be confirmed"
    Edit - hmmmm had that page open on my tablet, can't seem to find it now when I search on my computer.
    Edit again - ok, found the link https://www.drive.com.au/news/2023-r...-for-australia
    Also some cool sequences in the launch video Introducing: New Range Rover Sport - YouTube

    Really glad I went with the V8 now...
    as the Hybrid stuff takes over I think the big rattler will become most desirable here in Aus--
