Range Rover Sport Nighthawk by CDC Performance

The new generation of Land Rover has recently been introduced to the public and it looks pretty damn good. In the last four decades since the first generation model was revealed, the area where the remarkable British vehicle is used has evolved. Today, the luxury SUV from the traditional English brand name is found in off-road environments, on city streets and in shopping areas, too. CDC Performance is a tuning company that has developed an aftermarket program for the Range Rover Sport. They call it the Nighthawk.

The Range Rover Sport Nighthawk features a wide body kit that contains wider wheel arches and a few carbon fiber elements, such as the front bumper, the side skirts, a rear diffuser and apron, a roof spoiler and the side mirror casings. CDC also equipped the SUV with LED DRLs, a new front grille, carbon door handles and trunk board. Inside the vehicle we discover a sport steering wheel, a black Alcantara roofliner, and leather upholstery. The stainless steel pedals and footrest, the carbon sill plates and the Bali Blue seatbelts are noticeable once you open the car’s door.

CDC fitted the SUV with a compressor kit that enables the engine to produce 580 hp and 695 Nm of torque. The brake system includes 420x36mm 2-piece discs on the front axle with 6-piston calipers and 420x36mm 2-piece discs on the rear one with 4-spidton calipers. The Nighthawk rides on a set of 23 inch forged alloy wheels. It also benefits of a body lowering by 70 mm, which is active until the 4x4 reaches 90km/h. The exhaust system with valve control completes the CDC project. There is no information regarding the price of the tuning program.
