Rollcage, disabled SRS, but other than that, completely stock!

Some say...he can't hear the words "luxury SUV" said together. And that the airlines always charge him for extra carry-on baggage due to his enormous balls. All we know is...he did this in a mostly-stock Range Rover Sport with a rollcage and specially-designed off-road tires.

Awesome.

Can't believe anyone can resist ordering one after seeing that video. February can't come soon enough!

What color is that? It seems brighter than Montalcino and darker than Firenze red.

I'd wager he didn't drive it in Auto, but can't see him using CommandShift! :dance:

By "Special Tires" they looked like The Goodyear Duratracs.... Good Tire!

2017 Sport - Inferno Downhill Challenge [CH]

Gents and Ladies.

Anybody noticed a latest marketing gimmick from Tata's Land Rover/Range Rover where MY17 Rangie Sport does a downhill romp at a Swiss summer ski field ?

Here's the link from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzNOXjpr_i4 as the ex. Topgear UK programmes professional driver "Stigh" does a timed slalom course !

Bit of a shame they only went down the mountain instead of also going up it - as I'm sure a new BMW X6 would've struggled to turn around and head for heaven.

Cheerio,

Did anyone every figue out for sure which tire they were using? It might be a Duratrac, but I would be a little suspicious if it was because they corner like crap. I've had them on three different vehicles and can say with certainty they do not like hard corners. So, I'm a little doubtful that it is a DT.

Just curious...
