Range Rovers have never been lacking for power or luxury, but there's always been something missing from its lineup of premium SUVs: a genuine performance model.

Mercedes-Benz has the ML 63 AMG, BMW has the X5 M and Porsche has the Cayenne Turbo S, but Range Rover has so far gone without a proper hi-po SUV.

That looks set to change. While the 'regular' Range Rover Sport range is still fresh, the British SUV specialist is already out testing a performance model that will bring more power and a track-tuned suspension.

Rumoured to be dubbed the Range Rover Sport R-S and expected to hit European showrooms sometime in the coming months, the R-S has already been spied lapping the Nurburgring in camouflaged form.

In these spy shots, the R-S clearly rides lower than other Range Rover Sport models, and a much firmer suspension helps keep body roll at bay.

Aerodynamics are aided by the low chin and deep air dams of the front bumper, and the R-S's huge alloy wheels appear to conceal a set of equally massive brake rotors.

With the new Range Rover Sport shedding up to 420kg compared to its predecessor, the R-S should deliver exceptionally sharp handling for a large SUV. Off-roading ability, though, will likely be dramatically reduced.

As for the engine, expect a moderately tuned version of the Sport's 375kW 5.0 litre supercharged V8 to sit under the R-S's bonnet.
