The Range Rover Sport filled a hole in the Land Rover lineup between the LR3/LR4 and the top-end Range Rover, even though the Sport was smaller than both. To make up for the size deficiency, the Sport could be had with a 305-horsepower V-8 or a supercharged 390-horsepower V-8. Both came with six-speed automatic transmissions with a rev-matching feature for smoother upshifts and downshifts.
