First-gen Range Rover Sport leaves the production line image

The production of the first generation Range Rover Sport has been recently stopped in order to make room for the brand new 2014 model year.

The first generation of the Range Rover Sport has been on the assembly line ever since 2005 and the model was based on the T5 platform. But production has been recently stopped on the Range Rover Sport, with the last models rolling off the assembly line at the company’s Solihull plant today (May 2, 2013). The previous generation of the Range Rover Sport is making room for the new generation of the 2014 Range Rover Sport, which should make its way into showrooms soon.

According to the British based automaker, more than 400,000 units of the original Range Rover Sport have been sold out and only last year, the company has managed to sell 11,000 units in China only. As a quick reminder, the new generation of the Range Rover Sport has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 New York Auto Show. The model is getting a 3.0L supercharged V6 engine in the base version, replacing the 5.0L naturally aspirated Jaguar, while the top of the line is getting a 5.0L V8.
