Range Rover Sport SVR beats supercar record along Tianmen Road

The latest high performance SUV from Jaguar Land Rover wasn't meant to outperform a supercar, but that’s what happened when the new Range Rover Sport SVR took on a fearsome mountain road in China. Land Rover’s performance SUV has smashed the record for negotiating the 99 corners of the famous Tianmen Road with an average speed of almost 70km/h.
The standard production Range Rover Sport SVR set a new, unofficial, record of 9 minutes 51 seconds for the 11.3km ascent, beating the previous best of 10 minutes 31 seconds – set by a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar in 2016.
