It all happened yesterday at the famous Pikes Pike International Hill Climb course where a 2014 Range Rover Sport established the record for a production-standard Sport Utility Vehicle and broke the long standing record for any kind of production-standard vehicle.
The SUV managed to run the 12.42-mile asphalt course in just 12:35.61 at an average speed of 59.17 mph. The record was independently timed and sanctioned by PPIHC (Pikes Peak International Hill Climb).
For those of you who think this is not an impressive result, we have to remind you the Pikes Peaks features 156 corners and goes way up to an altitude of 14,110 feet where the air contains just 58% of the oxygen it does at sea level.
