The RR sport.... is the best SUV ever created. (period)

If the thing would get more than 8 mpg I would have 2. I have spent a good deal of time in it and it offers utility, towing, sporty driving, brakes, and it can OFF ROAD!

I drove it UP a stream in water with rocks up to the doors with the stock tires and huge optional rims and had no issues. Then beat the snot out of it on twisties. For something so heavy it handled so much better than I could have imagined, (unlike the RR). Interior is so-so but otherwise it is awesome.

The CTT drives well..... and that is it.

The X6 is destined to follow the same path...

Good to hear I chose the RR sport over an X5 and Cayenne GTS....It will be here soon!!

My father has a Range Rover Sport...

I have to say, the way it drives is VERY disappointing. It always feels heavy, it doesnt handle all that well, and just lacks alot of the driving precision of an X5 or Cayenne. Not only does it not handle well, but the ride quality is rather jarring and rough, not well composed. I will say, it is by far the hottest looking SUV out there, but the driving experience is not worthy of a "Sport" badge by any means. He had an X5 3.0 before it (previous generation) and even with the large power difference between the 3.0 and the RRS, the 3.0 felt quicker and more nimble.

Back on topic, look at that vented diff cover on this test mule... something mightly powerful must be under the hood to warrant such a thing.

What really is stupid. The X6 is heavy as hell.

X6 xDrive 50i - 5,269 pounds. That's 319 pounds more than the Porsche Cayenne S.
