Please don't forget about the ever-important underline under the rear badge, though thinking about it the P might be slightly faster without it and the weight saving.I believe it was 10mm lower.
You may also be thinking of what's generally called the P- which is the LR with the performance boost. Although it's got a performance boost it's still slightly slower then the full performance car. The old 18" wheels did not fit over the performance calipers, but I believe they have revised them so you can now get 18" that fit the full performance model. So if it's not got red calipers and a rear carbon spoiler and it's being called a performance then it's the slightly slower LR with the performance boost.
Performance= sports pedals (silver vs black), rear spoiler, 10mm lower suspension, track mode, brembo calipers, 0-60 in about 3s
LR with performance upgrade = track mode, 0-60 in about 3.5s (if you use the same rollout)
That basically summarizes the P-. I have one and absolutely love it. Here is why I went for it.P- is not LR with performance boost , it has the same performance as the P but with 18" alloys. Rated 0-60 3.2sec with 1'rollout.
p- gets track mode. So I guess you either haven't noticed you have it or don't have a p-. or ...That basically summarizes the P-. I have one and absolutely love it. Here is why I went for it.
1. Standard brakes are sufficient for non-track and cheaper to replace
2. 18' wheels are less prone to pothole damage and cheaper to replace
3. 18' wheels are better for range, quieter ( reduced road noise ) and offer a less harsher ride
4. Replacing 20' with a 3rd party 18' wheels is usually considered a modification by some insurers but in P- it is standard spec
5. Put your foot down, it obliterates (in style) cars screaming multiple exhausts, bright calipers and spoilers the size of aircraft wings - being understated is priceless
On the minus side, it does not have track mode enabled but then I'm not interested in taking it to a track so the configuration suits me well.
If driver weight was not taken into consideration. Like if it could drive itself for example. no wait ....Please don't forget about the ever-important underline under the rear badge, though thinking about it the P might be slightly faster without it and the weight saving.
Mine is indeed P- with the red underline as well but the track mode button is greyed out.p- gets track mode. So I guess you either haven't noticed you have it or don't have a p-. or ...
As far as I know it was added for p-. If its greyed you probably have it. I don't think it shows at all on the LR AWD. For me its greyed 1st time i get in the car until I put foot on brake. Give that a try.Mine is indeed P- with the red underline as well but the track mode button is greyed out.
Quite certain P- does not have track mode because it does not have the "Performance pack" as it was known then. It needs the endurance of larger brakes to implement traction management under track conditions.
See below @proddick and I discussing it 18 months ago
Still keeping our LR-AWD order at present. Anyone else? I read article below and at less than 1 second difference, it doesn't convince me it is worth the extra cost for P-Lite. I also suspect that with standard wheels the difference will be even smaller. To me, you either do full performance...www.speakev.com
