This latest teaser follows the release of a speed-blurred image last week, tied to the promise of the "fastest, most responsive and agile" Range Rover ever.
"The all-new Range Rover Sport takes the model to another level. It is Land Rover's most dynamic vehicle yet and showcases the best of British design, engineering and technological innovation," Land Rover's global brand director John Edwards said.
Although the new Sport will headline the Range Rover stand in New York, the world will get its first look at the new model as it drives through Manhattan on March 26, three days before the big event.
Spy photos obtained by TMR in recent months reveal that, like the new 'Rangey', the upcoming Sport will adopt styling elements that debuted with the Evoque.
Along with the new headlights, the next Sport will feature a rising belt-line and a tapered roof. Slim new tail-lights will likely also feature.
The new Sport will also have more in common with the flagship Range Rover, which shares its drivelines and separate frame underpinnings with the lesser Land Rover Discovery wagon.
This means a version of the Range Rover’s aluminium monocoque construction for the Sport - destined to bring significant weight savings over the current model which currently tips the scales at 2489kg in its lightest Australian spec.
Revised versions of the current 3.0 litre V6 turbodiesel, and 5.0 litre petrol V8 engines are also expected, but the likely universal adoption of the eight speed ZF transmission already available internationally would bring significant efficiency and emissions gains.
Watch for more details to be revealed in the coming weeks.
