    I think the front end has a bit of an agressive look, with the headlights/bonnet almost looking like frowning, but in an angry sort of way.

    How many speakers will this beast have? How many airbags?

    I think we are going to have to win the local lottery to afford this machine.

    Not good. They are following the rest of the herd, by making all side windows small & high. RR is known for it's low waisteline. They finally went to multiple headlights config & now they are reverting back to single headlight. IMHO...

    When I saw this I wondered if it is just an artist's impression from someone at Autocar rather than an official Land Rover drawing. Anyhow the actual model is so far off it ould change drastically by then.

    I totally agree it would be a shame if they went for a high window sill line which woulod reduce visibility badly -- you really need it off road.

    Interesting that tehy are thinking of going "back" to aluminium -- in a higher tech way.

    Cheers

    I could perhaps understand if it was the next gen RRS, but FFRR?

    I see a bit of the X series in there as well as a bit of

    This is still far from what the final product will look like. Everything I've heard is the LR has favored the more traditional styling models, hence I'm anticipating an evolvment of the current design while maintaining the traditional Range Rover styling cues (castelated bonnet, blacked out pillars, character line running length of vehicle, etc. etc).

    Ford, please hire someone from BMW to design the next FFRR (or at the least, the interior)! I dislike the RRS and LR3 interiors! Ugh!

    It looks like is will come off the same production line as the Ford Edge.

    Looks like a more aggressive, but squashed RR. I really hope they don't revert to interior plastics like the RRS to save a few pounds.

    Definitely doesn't seem to have that 'presence' the RR's have, hopefully the revisions will be for the better...

    This is what some artist thinks it *MIGHT* look like. It is based on absolutely nothing but his imagination.

    Where is the signature clam shell hood? I feel that Land Rover is starting to lose tradition.

    Hopefully by 2012, we all will have moved on to bigger, better things.

    For what it's worth, the vehicle shown does have a clam shell hood. I think the artist's concept car looks okay, but I agree that the final product will probably be full of Ford-esque bargain-bin plastics and other short-cuts like the Disco III and RRS.
