Some say the original Range Rover Sport was a phoney baloney thing that was neither a Range Rover nor particularly sporty. It was based on the Discovery and was so heavy that calling it ‘Sport’ was really rather funny. That is certainly not the case about the new generation though, especially the high-performance Range Rover Sport SVR.

To prove this car has right and true sporting credentials, Range Rover sent their Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross, to the race track where he demonstrates the balance of the Sport SVR. Driving this car with traction control off is probably the most fun you can have in a car!
