Range Rover Sport SVR Balances On Two Wheels At Goodwood

Land Rover has set yet another record, this time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, by having the facelifted Range Rover Sport SVR run up the hill on two wheels.

With Terry Grant behind the wheel, the high performance SUV tackled the course in just 2 minutes and 24.5 seconds. The stunt driver thus smashed his own record set in 2015 with a Nissan Juke Nismo RS by an impressive 20+ seconds.

The new record set in the Range Rover Sport SVR appears to have been certified by the Guinness World Record as being the quickest mile ran by a vehicle on two wheels (motorcycles don’t count, obviously).

Grant had to seriously concentrate to keep the 2-ton+ weighing SUV on two wheels for the impressive run depicted on film below. But when it sits on the ground, the Range Rover Sport SVR is a force to be reckoned with, sprinting from naught to 100km/h (0-62mph) in just 4.5 seconds, and topping out at 280km/h (174mph).

The SVR is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that churns out 575PS (567hp / 422kW) and 700Nm (516lb-ft) of torque, working in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Pricing for the Range Rover Sport SVR kicks off from £101,145 ($133,814) in the United Kingdom, or just over £37,000 ($48,950) more than the entry-level HSE. In the United States, it has an MSRP of $113,600, whereas the base Range Rover Sport SE can be had from $66,750.

      Did you enjoy your time?

    Am I the only one that thinks Goodwood shouldn’t be tarnished with silly circus acts such as this?

    • That’s how to make them appeal into more diverse audience, those who are not just into classic and supercar. I mean have you seen the used car Volvo challenge they featured for FoS?

  • JGreen

    Those tires must be at 200 PSI?

    “Brilliant!” Man & Car!

  • CRAZY.
