Work continues on the 2013 Range Rover as our spies have caught a prototype undergoing testing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Spain.

Heavily camouflaged, the luxury flagship strives to strike a balance between the Range Rover's classic lines and the sporty styling of the Evoque. As such, the model features a clamshell hood, a sloping roofline and LED-infused headlights.

Despite being significantly larger, the next-generation Range Rover is expected to weigh approximately 400 kg (881 lbs) less than the current version. To get this dramatic reduction, the model will reportedly ride on an aluminum chassis that was developed with the assistance of Jaguar.

Engine options could carryover from the current model, but there have also been rumors of a hybrid / plug-in hybrid variant that might feature technology from the Range_e concept.
