The official debut of the new Range Rover is getting closer and closer, as this last set of spy shots confirms: the pictured mule in fact looks more like a pre-production car going out for a spin than some prototype still well into its testing stage, and we are pretty sure that the final version of the car will not be that different from what we can see in these pics (fancy paintjob aside, of course).
The heavy cladding hiding all the lines and details that we had seen in the previous spy shots are gone, now there are only light stickers giving most of the details such as the new head lights, air intakes and so on. We can also notice that the engine hood is more rounded than before, and that the grille is more upright.
The new Range Rover will be both lighter and more fuel efficient than the current one due to the new aluminum platform (a modified version of the one used to create the Jaguar XJ) as well as the extensive use of lightweight materials. Rumor has it that the next Range Rover will be about 3-400 kg lighter than the current version of the car.
