Is this a 2018 Range Rover Sport Prototype Caught in the Wild? [Spied]

2018 Range Rover Sport prototype (by Nate S.)

Land Rover is hard at work to refresh and rejuvenate its Land Rover and Range Rover lineups. This is the latest in the series of prototypes spied in the wild. This appears to be a prototype for the 2018 Range Rover Sport. Big thanks to Nate S. for sending in these detailed images.

Nate reports that whatever engine is under the hood of this test-mule makes for a raspy and mean engine note coming from the dual exhaust system in the back. Chances are the refreshed Range Rover Sport will to use a lineup of supercharged (and/or turbocharged) gasoline engines. A turbo-diesel is also among possibilities.

The styling appears to be largely the same. Range Rover is appears to be taking a conservative approach during this refresh cycle.
