Land Rover has released a new video showing the Range Rover Sport SVR model undergoing stability testing at Rockingham Motor Speedway in the UK. The film demonstrates the supercharged SVR’s sports car-like performance while being driven flat-out around the track with all of the electronic traction and stability aids turned off.
