This 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is outfitted in elegant Autobiography trim, and if this car fits your life story, you’ve clearly arrived. The cabin is well-appointed and comfortable for an average-size guy like me. The caramel-color leather and stitching are gorgeous, and the dashboard looks like someone slathered scotch all over it. I mean that in a nice way; this color looks as if it should be poured over ice and lightly stirred. Even during a rainy commute, the interior was isolated and serene. The elevated road view was useful in seeing taillights far ahead on rain-slicked roads, which was critical in minimizing panic braking on what could have been a treacherous commute.But the real star of the Range Rover Sport is this blown V8, which serves up the torque in gobs low in the band. Bury your foot from a standstill and hold on: This thing shoots to 50 mph and revs to 5,500 without breaking a sweat. The exterior has strong military bearing and looks imposing, like the proverbial rolling fortress. If I had kids and a Labrador, this would be one of my SUVs of choice.
