Futuristic Range Rover Sport is the star of new US drama series
Jaguar Land Rover
Land Rover North America has unveiled a futuristic looking Range Rover Sport which has made its debut in US drama series ‘The First’.
A collaboration between Land Rover Design, Westward
Productions and streaming firm Hulu, saw them create a vehicle based on the
Range Rover Sport fitted with advanced technology.
An exterior Smart Light Bar
acting as a 360-degree sensor was the most noticeable inclusion, allowing the
vehicle to communicate with others on the road and drive autonomously. The
futuristic car also had a retractable steering wheel and wraparound privacy
glass, which can change from the windows from being transparent to opaque.
Inside there is an intelligent interior which can alter its
shape and density, allowing the passengers to adjust the Range Rover how they
want. The Sport is also all electric and has variable suspension allowing the
SUV to change its performance characteristics to its owner’s requirements.
Michael Curmi, Jaguar Land Rover Brand Experience Director,
said the team is excited to partner with Hulu for this series, adding:
“With the show set in the future, it was an exciting
challenge to create a vision of what the Range Rover Sport might look like in
the 2030s and to have it featured throughout the series.”
The First, created by House of Cards’ Beau Willimon, is a
near-future drama about a crew of astronauts attempting to become the first
humans on Mars, with the Range Rover driven by visionary aerospace magnate Laz
Ingram, played by actress Natascha McElhone.
