99 turns, 11.3 km uphill climb

99 turns, 11.3 km uphill climb”

Last month we wrote about Land Rover conquering the Heaven's Gate rock arch in China, with a steep 999-step climb to do in a Range Rover Sport PHEV. SUV is not just a typical model of other SUV.

With 567bhp and 700Nm available from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, the SVR is now is the fastest Land Rover and can accelerate from 0 to100km/h in 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 280km/h.

With a 174-mph top speed, the 575-hp Range Rover Sport SVR is one of only a handful of performance SUVs, featuring a performance-oriented chassis that's been tuned to ensure that the vehicle has excellent cornering capabilities, minimal pitch under heavy acceleration and braking, good body control, and plenty of grip through corners. This supercar was truly designed with latest updated features, which drives like no other Land Rover. The goal? To beat the time set by Fabio Barone in a Ferrari 458 Italia back in 2016 - 10 minutes 31 seconds. However, the supercar can also deliver the top speed of 174 miles per hour (280 km/h). It also possesses the ability to take performance and luxury to next level.

A big SUV taking on a focused sports auto sounds like a one-sided affair, but Tung somehow managed to set an unofficial time of 9 minutes 51 seconds with an average speed of 68.8 km/h. Now, there's another challenge the Chinese racing driver Ho-Pin Tung has beaten in a Range Rover: the 11.3 km and 99-turn Tianmen Mountain road.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing's Ho-Pin Tung said: "I am used to the high speeds of racing but this was even more demanding". One immediate challenge for the SVR was a power deficit, as the Ferrari has a 3-hp advantage, on top of its lower center of balance and lesser weight.
