Range Rover SVR beats Ferrari 458's Tianmen record

Range Rover Sport SVR

Usually big, heavy and focused on carrying plenty of people, luggage and caravans, performance is usually well down on the priority list.

Expect the Velar SVR to follow a similar avenue to the larger Range Rover Sport SVR, combining a luxurious and comfortable cabin with brutal acceleration and more dynamic handling - the latter aided by adaptive chassis and suspension settings along with the upgraded wheel and tyre package. An eight-speed automatic transmission and configurable four-wheel drive system should feature too.

The RR Sport SVR was driven by Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver Ho-Pin Tung, who set a new unofficial record of 9 minutes 51 seconds for the 11.3km ascent at an average speed of 68.8km/h.

The anticipated (but not yet confirmed) Range Rover Velar SVR has been spied again, doing rounds at the famed Nurburgring circuit in Germany.

This allows the SUV to charge from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 174mph.

Australian women outplay India, clinch series
While Australia will look to seal the series, India women will look to bounce back and it is the last chance to save the series. Yet, Perry's unbeaten 70 and fifty from Beth Mooney helped Australia to big total of 287.

Packing a supercharged V8 under its shapely bonnet, the fastest Range Rover Velar will go after rivals like the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio.

Inside, new lightweight SVR Performance seats provide superior support and traditional Range Rover luxury with Windsor leather, an embossed SVR logo and a choice of four colour combinations.

It seems Land Rover has realized there are easier ways of summiting China's Tianmen Mountain than driving up 999 stairs. Barone's time on the Tianmen Road, 10 minutes and 31 seconds, was beaten with a Range Rover Sport SVR, which actually has five horsepower more than a stock 458 Italia, at 575 hp.

Now its time to check out the record-breaking run.
