Range Rover Sport SVR sets Ferrari 458 beating record

Range Rover Sport SVR is the latest released series of Jaguar Land Rover. However, SUV might sound to some people to be an extraordinary choice. 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). This supercar was featured with a V8 5.0-liter supercharged engine, which possesses the ability to produce 422 kW (575 PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. The goal? To beat the time set by Fabio Barone in a Ferrari 458 Italia back in 2016 - 10 minutes 31 seconds.

"The consequences of getting it wrong would have been really serious so I focused on establishing a rhythm and the Range Rover Sport SVR made this easy - it may be an SUV but it has the performance and agility of a supercar and can take you to places a supercar can only dream of". Driven by Panasonic Jaguar Racing's Ho-Pin Tung, the SUV managed to go through the same course in 9 minutes 51 seconds.

The earlier climb challenge also included driving that road in its entirety, but at that time Land Rover didn't set out to beat the record set by Italian privateer Fabio Barone with a Ferrari 458 Italia in 2016 - the same vehicle he used in 2015 to set a 9:13 record time at the famous Transfagarasan road in Romania. As per as the statement of Tung, he is used to driving at high speeds but these 99 turns are something extraordinary also for him. 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.
