First, the RR Sport and RR should not be compared. They are very different vehicles. The sport does not indicate a chassis tuning, etc., it is a completely different vehicle. So when people say that the sport cannot be much better than the stock RR, yes, it is.

Second, the RR Sport is a lot cheaper than the RR. By about $20k or so. You would not cross shop the two.

Third, the RR Sport is cheaper for a reason. The interior is pretty low rent for a vehicle that starts in the $50's and can be optioned (Supercharged) into the low $80's.

Fourth, Reliability has been improving under the Tata ownership. Not getting worse.

In the end, I'd pass. Unless you like getting about 10 MPG and living with a low rent interior.
