We have the first photo of the 2013 Range Rover ahead of an official reveal and debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.
UPDATE: It seems there are copyright issues with the photo we have of the 2013 Range Rover (the photo was not leaked by Land Rover as some may have suspected) so Land Rover has requested we take it down. We have therefore acquiesced. Not a common occurrence (the last time was when we had the first photos of the Ferrari 550 GTZ), but sometimes we have to be pragmatic. Unfortunately.
This appears to be the real deal – the first photo of the 2013 Range Rover.
Motor Authority appear to have had this photo of the all new Range Rover sent to them by a reader and, as far as we can see, it’s the first photo of the all new Range Rover for a decade.
Just as you’d expect from the spy photos of the new Range Rover, the 2013 version is still familiar, but it’s less boxy and more curvy.
There’s a hint of the Evoque about the new Range Rover, certainly around the headlights and grill, but the familiar clamshell bonnet is still in evidence.
The alloy wheels seem unconvincing – more yesterday than tomorrow – and this Range Rover appears to have its air suspension turned down low; we can’t belive that’s the RR’s default suspension setting.
We expect Land Rover to react soon with photos of their own, certainly well ahead of the 2013 Range Rover’s public debut in September at the Paris Motor Show.
And we’ll wait to see a proper selection of photos before we pass an opinion on the design of the all new Range Rover.
