Not surprise anyone if I say that Land Rover has found the Range Rover Evoque, the goose that lays golden eggs. And is that a brand that has always been very traditional in their designs and concepts, has proved able to innovate in design and concepts, while the essence of the British firm, through the Evoke. That is why a model is highly desired by all, but Land Rover does not seem to worth. Want more, and that is why a British firm is already considering a sportier version with the new Range Rover Sport . A story that arose during an interview with Design Director, Gerry McGovern, the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.

A model that is liked by all consumers, to the point of seducing women worldwide . That is why what Gerry McGovern and has ventured to affirm that:

We can go far with the Evoke, but what is certain is that this car has redefined the size and proportions of an SUV. Although at the moment, we are looking for a cabriolet and a few special editions. In fact, we could make a sportier model, for example.

It is true that this new knowledge is not new, but it is the first time that an executive recognizes that we could see a high-performance version of Evoke. A revelation, on the other hand, suspiciously coincides with the launch in Beijing's Audi Q3 RS Concept , a model that would be the direct rival Evoke Sport. To which McGovern added:

18% of buyers of Evoke, is the first time they buy a Land Rover model.

A fact that will help the British brand to launch new versions that appeal to more consumers for the first time the British house, such as the Cabriolet Evoke we saw at the Geneva Motor Show , or the Special Edition of Victoria Beckham. While acknowledging that the Evoke Sport is that true fans have been waiting in recent months. A version for the moment, we do not know that engines could accommodate, but it seems clear that the safe bet would be the current variant of 240 hp turbo four cylinders and 2.0 liters.

Nor is discarded motor home a new Ford EcoBoost technology, capable of holding about 296 hp. While one should not rule out a diesel version, as SD4 version that uses a 2.2 liter engine, and what would happen to the 190 hp to 210 hp, reaching 100 km / h in under 11 seconds.

While in design, the designers of Land Rover hope to add even more big wheels, body kit along with an even more aggressive. In addition the suspension was modified, being lowered by about 10mm, which will have to add larger brakes. Improvements that surely will improve the management of this model as charismatic and desired. However, not until next year when we see this version of Evoke Sport, because currently, Land Rover is facing the great demand that is the Evoke.
