A 2014 Range Rover Sport recently set a new record time for an SUV on the world-renowned Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Pikes Peak, Colorado.
The Hill Climb is a grueling 12-mile, uphill course that pushes vehicles to the limit as they attempt to scale nearly 5000 feet in high altitude. With an average speed of nearly 60 mph, the 2014 Range Rover Sport posted a time of 12 minutes and 35.61, which also the fastest time clocked on the course of ANY production vehicle, let alone an SUV known for its off road prowess.
With 510 horsepower coming courtesy of a 5.0-liter supercharged engine, there was never a question that the Rover would have enough power to make it through the run in impressive time. What is truly remarkable was how it was able to successfully negotiate over 150 corners, drawing on its superior steering and suspension. The Range Rover Sport was driven by Paul Dallenbach. This is a hugely capable vehicle and I’m proud to have been part of demonstrating that by setting a new Pikes Peak record.”
