You knew it was coming and that is was just a question of timing, but hot on the heels of the new Range Rover hitting showrooms around the world is an announcement that we'll see the Sport version on March 26.

Acknowledging one of its largest markets, Land Rover will release the new Range Rover Sport with a drive through Manhattan on the eve of the 2013 New York Auto Show.

New York is the Sport's largest single market. With more sold here than any other metropolitan area in the world. Remarkably, it's also the best-selling model in North America.

Land Rover is talking about the new Sport being the most agile ever, indicating it will share the Range Rover's new aluminum construction to shed weight and improve responses.

The New York drive event will be broadcast live via www.newrangeroversport.com

Anybody registering will for the site will receive an invitation to watch the reveal on March 26 and get exclusive extra content. The event is set to happen at 7.30pm Eastern Time.
