Range Rover Sport (2018) Dragon Challenge – EXTREME CLIMB

New Range Rover Sport PHEV 2018 manages record breaking feat with Formula E driver.

A dizzying 99 turns and 999 daunting steps didn’t stop the new Range Rover Sport PHEV from completing a world-first at one of China’s most famous landmarks. The petrol-electric performance SUV has become the first vehicle to climb the stairs to the natural rock arch of Heaven’s Gate.

The challenge began at the bottom of the legendary 11.3km Tianmen Mountain Road (known as the Dragon Road).  The showroom standard Range Rover Sport P400e took on the demanding course, with Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Ho-Pin Tung behind the wheel and the Terrain Response 2 system in Dynamic mode. 

At the summit of the road, the Formula E driver optimised Terrain Response for the second part of the challenge, conquering the towering 45-degree staircase of 999 steps leading to China’s legendary Heaven’s Gate using a combination of Ingenium petrol and electric battery power. 

The new PHEV powertrain gives the Range Rover Sport a zero-emission EV range of up to 50km when fully charged but Ho-Pin Tung used its advanced 300PS Ingenium petrol engine and 116PS electric motor to make short work of the road section of the challenge. The performance SUV then showed its uncompromised all-terrain credentials by climbing the steep staircase to the natural rock arch.

Wonderful pictures, very nice production…. but what about the V8 sound in a electric car!? And this place must be an human patrimony…. Bastardized for a few (or many) dollars

Chav-Mobile, we all know it.

Not for me Range Rover Sport. Range Rover Velar though, now that is not a Chav-Mobile and appears to be for the more less in your face customer, which the Range Rover Sport is.

The Range Rover Sport sure has done really well sales wise, but it is a hugely overrated and overpriced car, that has “I am in debt” written all over it. Sorry but that is how I stereotype your average Range Rover driver.

The RR Sport is actually quite uncomfortable too and HGV style windwipers and wing mirrors, please, seriously?.

If you must have an off-road vehicle, you buy Volvo XC70, XC60 and of course the mighty XC90. They are as good, if not better than a Range Rover. They are also better build quality, in many cases cheaper, they also have a better engine line up and are not regarded as Chav-Mobiles, which Range Rover Sports are.

Even an Audi All-Road A6 could compete with a Range Rover Sport in many ways, but if you want a proper off-roader that can do what a Range Rover can, but with better build quality, better looking and better priced, you buy Volvo, period.

I love it so much

sei do says:

the hard truth is in real life, no matter what u have to stop in the middle of that steep climb and nothing in this video prove they can survive that. and another thing, people who bought this car and thinking they will have the exact same capabilities is daydreaming.
