The 2013 Range Rover will be the fourth generation superceding the original that was produced from 1970 to 1996, the second series platform lasted from 1994 to 2001, and the current “Stormer Concept” that has been in production post 2002.
These Spyshots even though heavily camouflaged hints at its longer wheelbase and completely revised shell.
By using the lightweight material, engineers could lose up to 40 percent from the weight of the current Range Rover’s unpainted body shell, equating to a saving of roughly 660 to 880 pounds. Advanced composites are also expected to be used for certain elements, such as the body panels and rear tailgate.

The new generation Range Rover has been spotted during hot weather testing in Southern Europe today.
These are the first Spyshots of a prototype of the 2013 Range Rover, it is really important platform for Land Rover as it shares chassis as the upcoming Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Sport.
Rumors are talking about that the new platform is a modified Jaguar XJ platform that has been strengthened on vital places to make sure the off-road capabilities will remain top of the line.
The new Range Rover has gone through a drastic weight reduction, thanks to more aluminum used on both chassis and body which will improve on consumption and its off road capability.
Power will come from both diesel and petrol engines known from the current line-up, even if slightly upgraded, and there will also be two hybrid versions.
This means that the Range Rover will be available both as diesel hybrid and as petrol hybrid when it will be official in late 2012 or early 2013
