Even the Daunting Heaven's Gate Staircase in China is No Match for the New Range Rover Sport!


A post shared by Land Rover (@landrover) on

It turns out that even 999 intimidating steps at a 45 degree angle up one of China's most famous landmarks isn't enough to stop the ability and prowess of the new Range Rover Sport! Just recently, the new Range Rover Sport made the impressive accomplishment with Ho-Pin Tung of the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team behind the wheel, starting at the bottom of the legendary seven-mile Tianmen Mountain Road, or Dragon Road, and culminating in a conquering climb up the 999 steep steps to China's legendary Heaven's Gate! While the Range Rover Sport may look and feel like an elegant luxury, when you put a challenge in front of it, it's all primal fortitude.

Ho-Pin, who has competed in numerous Formula 1 events and even won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, described the accomplishment as one of the most demanding driving challenges he's ever faced. Before conquering Heaven's Gate, the Range Rover Sport also took on a record-setting climb at Pikes Peak, crossed the Empty Quarter desert, and descended the 7,119-foot Inferno downhill course in Switzerland. If you're looking for a vehicle that can truly do it all, look no further than the new Land Rover Sport!
