Land Rover pushes the brilliant V8 after, which has given us some joy on a first test lap. The machine does not flaunt its strength as gym-hardened as an AMG, it shows its sovereignty almost shyly. There is a lack of little. Eight-cylinder with compressor, 5 liter displacement, 525 hp and 625 Nm torque do not miss their comforting effect.
