Range Rover Sport SVR All Terrain 0-100 km/h Test: Video
We still haven’t yet found out why did Land Rover actually created such a wild production SUV in the form of the Range Rover Sport SVR. I mean SUV’s are built to take on the rough terrains which are not accessible by any other usual four wheeled vehicles and they actually don’t have to be fast only tough enough to take on roads or no roads. But the Range Rover Sport SVR proved us all wrong. This wild beast can not only handle bad terrains but actually can give nightmares to many sportscars with its incredibly fast acceleration.
Just imagine with all the 550 Hp of peak power this heavy SUV can accelerate from 0-100 km/h mark in just 4.7 seconds that is almost equal to the time that the Porsche Cayman 718 takes to reach the three digit speeds. Since its introducing back in 2015 the RR SVR has been setting records. Recently Land Rover tested their wild SUV’s acceleration capability in 6 completely different terrains.
The Range Rovers first test was to take on the Europe’s fastest racing circuit, Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby, UK. The second test was performed on a much tougher wet grass surface. The third test was performed on gravel surface. The fourth test was performed on Mud and Ruts. The last two terrain tests were performed on Pendine Sands at Carmarthen Bay in South Wales while the final test was not actually dependent on speed but something little different which tested the SUV’s Rock crawl mode.

Land Rover Range Rover is one of the iconic cars of all time in the world automotive history. The iconic luxury SUV comes with a glorious history of off roading around the corners of world. To celebrate the occasion, Land Rover recruited their 6 millionth range Rover model in Suzhou in China with a challenge of crossing a bridge. Incidentally the city of Suzhou is known as the Venice of East for its several bridges.
Well, crossing a bridge certainly not a tough challenge for Range Rover. But the real story is the bridge was made of paper only. No steel, no nuts and bolts. The five metre long bridge was made of 54390 pieces of papers, which were packed tightly in the arch technique, and there was no glue or bolts. It took the crew three days to build the bridge. Land Rover Experience chief instructor Chris Zhou was given the task to take the Range Rover over the paper bridge. The Range Rover comes with All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) technology, which allows the drivers overcome tough challenges thrown at them. Moreover, the advanced lightweight body also helped the car to overcome the challenge without any difficulty.

Commenting on the event of photo shoot with Range Rover Evoque Convertible she said, "I was so impressed by the design of this car; it’s like nothing I’ve seen on the road before and is so sleek! I love the fact that it is just as much at home driving down the Pacific Coast Highway in LA, as it is off-road in the British Countryside".

There are many stories of Land Rover vehicles around the globe. But, have you ever heard a tale, where a fleet of Land Rover Series I SUV’s still is the lifeline for an entirely remote and important zone.
Well, if you ever get a chance to visit or even visited the Sandakphu trail situated in the Northern most part of West Bengal, which is also the border area of Nepal and Sikkim, you will surely understand what we are trying to explain here.
Land Rover Taxi Association of Maney Bhanjyang is the largest operator of Land Rover Taxis in the entire South East Asia. While there are some people who claims that, this is also the biggest Land Rover Taxi operator association. Keeping aside the debate and controversy; one thing is for sure that, these fleet of ageing Land Rover Series I vehicles are the "lifeline of an entirely remote area", where there is no tar topped roads, but only some rocks laid to be called as the ‘Road’.
The association is known as the Singalila Land Rover Association, and it operates a total number of 45 Land Rover Series I vehicles. Although these SUV’s are more than half a century old, but all of them still looks and performs as good as new. From the exterior, the iconic Land Rover Green badges are gone or completely faded away; instead there are aluminium plates with the iconic Land Rover symbols and the name itself. Surely those badges took the toll of travelling on the rough roads and cloud wrapped gushy wind.
The president of the Singalila Land Rover Association Mr. Kalu Tamang discussed with us, how these Land Rovers came in the region.This is surely an interesting feature which not only proves the capability of this ageing Land Rovers but also their importance for these people living in these remote areas.
