On 23rd July 2021, my friend Bikash called me up to get ready for the delivery of his Range Rover Sport and the whole process was kind of very rushed and quick.
Why did he Choose Range Rover Sport
Bikash wanted to go for Mercedes G350d same as my config but with red seats – but had to drop the plan – since the current schedule of waiting period 8 months for delivery. So, the best choice next to Gwagon was either a Porsche Cayenne or a Range Rover Sport. Since, Porsche doesnt have service backup in Bhubaneswar, it was decided to finalise the Range Rover Sport directly and we need it in black only.
Pricing & Addons
The total amount paid was approx 1.22 crores for this, as this is the Petrol 2.0L variant with various addons loaded to the car.
Few more addons has also been ordered, which will be coming in next 15-20 days, then will be installed.
Delivery Process Almost Failed
The delivery was actually messed up as the truck did not reach in time, and then by the time PDI was done, it was almost 9pm in the night.

Finally, the delivery!
But we had decided to close the day with delivery only and we waited patiently for the whole documentation process to end and finally the delivery happened. Full video is here.
Customisation & Upgrades
Since Black Edition of Range Rover Sport doesnt come to India, we have to make a lot of customisation to this to make it exact black edition, like we need. We are also ordering few carbon fiber parts and a SVR exhaust conversion DIY kit to make the rear stand out a bit.
Full Review ?
Full review, I will do it someday for you guys, until then let me know what all videos do you want to see about the Range Rover Sport – so I can plan and get it done.
