Watch the Range Rover Sport SVR Shred Tianmen Mountain's 99 Turns

Watch the Range Rover Sport SVR Shred Tianmen Mountain's 99 Turns

We typically don't think of an SUV as a great performer. That's certainly not the case with the Range Rover Sport SVR. With Panasonic Jaguar racing driver Ho-Pin Tung behind the wheel, a standard spec Range Rover Sport SVR made the climb in 9 minutes and 51 seconds, setting unofficial record. As a reminder, the eight-cylinder mill produces 575 metric horsepower and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the performance SUV to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds (0-60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds) and reach a top speed of 280km/h (174mph).

A Range Rover Sport SVR piloted by a Formula E driver has beaten a record set by a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar on the terrifying - and this is no mean feat. The new performance flagship features bold design revisions and increased use of lightweight materials to enhance performance, handling and agility. Range Rover says the SVR used in the challenge was a stock example, and that Barone's Ferrari was "modified". Engineers focused on controlling pitch under heavy acceleration and braking, and changes to the damping hardware have improved turn-in, mid-corner grip, and body control.

"Maintaining concentration was the biggest challenge as the road twists and turns constantly, with huge drop-offs to the side", he said. The latest Range Rover Sport SVR is well-recognized as fastest Land Rover ever and it is truly the most capable performance SUV as well.

Donald Trump Eyes Tariffs On Up To $60 Billion Chinese Goods
If, as expected, big action against China is announced, China will nearly certainly take equally strong retaliatory action. China has already warned that it will take "strong measures" to protect its interests against the new tariffs.

Helping to set the record was the SVR's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine that produces 423kW and 700Nm. This isn't the only stunt that Land Rover did in China, since the Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid recently climbed the 999 steps leading to China's Heaven's Gate.

The record-breaking journey included mind-boggling angles of up to 45-degrees along "Dragon Road".
