Here's the problem I have with the claim that the SVR was faster than the Ferrari 458 Italia on this road: There's nothing about this whole road that would make the RRS a better suited vehicle than most sport coupes. So to me, it would have to be the difference between drivers. I know for a fact that my driving skills would be completely outmatched by any pro driver regardless of car. So yeah, I'm sure a pro driver would beat me on any road even if you gave me a McLaren 720s and the driver drove a Honda Civic Type R. But there is absolutely no conceivable scenario where the RRS would out driver a Ferrari 458 Italia on a paved road with equally skilled drivers. Not even at really high altitude. Those hair pin turns are made for a 458 while the RRS has to turn the wheels two full turns each way to get in and out of them. I should know, I've owned both cars and own an SVR now which I am sure could not out-drive any sports coupe around a road like that. I don't know why JLR would make this claim. It's pretty ridiculous.
