The STARTECH REFINEMENT program includes a dynamically styled aerodynamic-enhancement kit, 22-inch one-piece and multi-piece STARTECH Monostar wheels, a ride-height lowering, a stainless-steel sport exhaust system and even a completely redesigned interior. Owners of the turbodiesel version can opt for the STARTECH PowerXtra SD30 S performance kit, which boosts power output of the 3.0 SDV6 turbodiesel model of the Range Rover Sport by 22 kW / 31 hp while bumping peak torque by 80 Nm.
The STARTECH front element, which replaces the production bumper, lends the all-wheel-drive car a more distinctive front. But that’s not all: The sophisticated design with integrated wing profile also contributes towards further lowering negative lift on the front axle. The large air openings optimize the supply of fresh air to radiator and front brakes. A special feature are the LEDs integrated into the fascia, which seem to be floating freely and serve as daytime running lights and side markers. The advanced STARTECH lighting concept is rounded out by innovative LED fog lights which are set further back than on the production version.
As the perfect complement to the designer outfit, STARTECH offers various tire/wheel combinations in size 10Jx22 front and back for the Range Rover Sport. The one-piece STARTECH Monostar R five-spoke wheel impresses with its elaborate design with black wheel spider and polished contours. It also comes in a version with a red pinstripe on the rim flange. Tires in size 285/35 R 22 front and back were selected as the perfect option.
For the particularly popular Range Rover Sport with SDV6 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine STARTECH offers performance tuning that was perfected in extensive and elaborate test programs. The STARTECH SD30 S tuning kit consists of a processor-controlled plug-and-play auxiliary control unit, which thanks to a model-specific wire harness and detailed installation instructions can be fitted in less than 90 minutes by any specialist workshop.
The newly calibrated mapping bumps power output of the diesel engine from standard 215 kW / 292 hp to 237 kW / 323 hp at 4,000 rpm. Even more important for everyday driving is the increase in peak torque from standard 600 Nm to 680 Nm, available at a low 2,000 rpm.
These impressive engine output figures naturally also benefit vehicle performance: The sprint time from 0 – 100 km/h of the tuned Range Rover Sport SDV6 3.0 is shortened to 6.9 seconds while top speed increases to 222 km/h.
