Range Rover dropped a new appearance package for the 2025 Range Rover Sport. The Stealth Pack option, available solely for the Sport Dynamic SE model, doesn’t boost the SUV’s performance but focuses on looks. According to a Jaguar Land Rover news release, buyers will choose the Stealth Pack for its visceral effect on the Range Rover Sport’s appearance. Whether you think it looks sporty, powerful, or scary may depend on what movies you watch or where you drive.

Why the Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack matters

Range Rover wants you to know its vehicles can look sinister with subtle, stealthy colorways and dramatic finishes. Range Rover is synonymous with high-priced luxury haulers popular with royalty and A-listers. Launching the Stealth Pack option exclusively for the sport-focused model in the lineup messages the automaker’s interest in appealing to a broader market.

In emphasizing the Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack’s dark side, a theme repeated multiple times in the news release, Range Rover isn’t trying to cast the SUV as evil. On the contrary, the Stealth Pack is supposed to overlay the Range Rover’s refined and luxurious aesthetic with a refined and contemporary sports aesthetic.

Hannah Custance, Range Rover Materiality Design Manager, further explains, “It was created for clients looking for a specification which conveys empowerment and strength.”

What’s included in the Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack?

The Stealth Pack consists of colors, finishes, and special treatments for the car’s exterior and interior, as well as the Range Rover Sport’s wheels and brakes. Most exterior surfaces are Carpathian Grey metallic paint covered with a protective satin-finish wrap, which can be replaced if damaged or scratched.

The roof and accent pieces, including hood vents, lettering, lower front and rear bumpers, and side sills, are painted contrasting Navick Black Gloss with the Stealth Pack.

The Range Rover Sport Stealth Pack includes 23-inch Navick Black Gloss wheels, black disc calipers, and dark privacy glass.

In addition to Natural Black Veneers on the interior, buyers can choose either Ebony Windsor Leather or Light Cloud Windsor Leather with the Stealth Pack.

The Stealth Pack is available exclusively for the Range Rover Sport Dynamic SE, which features a 395 horsepower, 48V mild-hybrid six-cylinder Ingenium gas engine, a 150 mph maximum speed, and 5.2 seconds zero-to-60 acceleration.

Would you slow down if you saw this car on the side of the highway?

The Range Rover Sport Dynamic SE with the Stealth Pack option will surely appeal to the many American buyers who have opted for blacked-out vehicles. Range Rover’s focus on the dark and dramatic theme with the Sport Stealth Pack may benefit from the SUV’s similarity to unmarked government and police cars. If I were driving in Connecticut and saw the Range Rover Sport in the above photo parked on the side of the highway, I’d instinctively slow down. Wouldn’t you?

The Stealth Pack option for the 2025 Range Rover Sport Dynamic SE lists for $10,305 in the United States.

Hennessey’s Venom F5 has set a speed record, though it isn’t quite the record the company is hoping will be the highlight of its year. The hypercar, which may be recognized as the world’s fastest at some point in the near future, now holds the production car lap record at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA). The track is globally significant, having hosted the U.S. Grand Prix for several years now, but also holds a special place in Hennessey’s heart. It’s the Texas-based company’s home circuit, so it’s fitting that it has gone out and established itself as the biggest dog in its own backyard before setting off to take on the world.

Speaking to The Manual, CEO and Founder John Hennessey explained what a significant milestone this is. He says: "I kicked off 2024 by saying that the Venom F5 will deliver on its potential this year. With 22 customer cars delivered and a newly expanded engineering team in place, we refocused our team on fine-tuning our hypercar to achieve significant speed milestones. The first we went after was a track record - and where better to set a fastest lap than our home circuit - COTA!"

In case you haven't noticed, cars and trucks have become significantly more advanced over the last few years, and most of those advancements have thankfully come in the name of safety. It wasn't that long ago that having antilock brakes and airbags was a significant breakthrough in modern tech. But now, with everything from pedestrian detection to automated emergency braking to adaptive cruise control, cars have never been safer.

New viral video shows Tesla’s Cybertruck’s shatterproof glass has come a long way
The Cybertruck's windows aren't just bulletproof

A key feature of the Tesla Cybertruck seemingly makes the vehicle immune to one common car crime. Thieves in San Francisco, commonly known as “blippers,” were witnessed trying and failing to smash the vehicle’s “bulletproof” armored glass. Some kind of pick appeared to be used during the 45-second-long assault on the truck’s perdurable panes.

The would-be thief in question was even videoed jumping on the Cybertruck’s roof, but even that wasn’t enough to force an opening. The whole incident, along with photos of the truck’s windows, was shared on X by user Arash Malek, who added, “Cybertruck is California-proof. Armored glass beats criminals trying their best to break in – even when jumping on the roof.”
