Land Rover's bold LRX concept is inching closer to production, says auto spy photographer Brenda Priddy. Her network of photographers caught this mule, wearing an LR2 body with a shortened rear end and revised front fascia, testing at the Nürburgring.
Expected to carry the Range Rover badge, the LRX will likely draw power from two engine options, a 3.2L gasoline inline-six and a 2.2L four-cylinder turbodiesel. As previewed by the concept, Land Rover may also offer a hybrid 2.0L turbodiesel. The production model should be taller than the concept, allowing for more headroom and come in three- and five-door variants.
It will be unveiled next year and begin sales in 2011.
