This is manufacturer video of the 2014 Range Rover Sport setting the Pikes Peak Production Hill Climb Record. American competition and stunt driver Paul Dallenbach drove the all-new Range Rover Sport yesterday establishing the record for a production-standard Sport Utility Vehicle and breaking the long standing record for any kind of production-standard vehicle on the Pikes Pike International Hill Climb course.

According to Range Rover, “The Range Rover Sport rose to the challenge of the 12.42-mile asphalt course, powering its way from a standing start, in just 12 minutes 35.61 seconds – an average speed of 59.17 mph (95.23 kph) on a snaking road that clings to the edge of the mountain with precipitous drops on one side and unyielding rock faces on the other. The record was independently timed and sanctioned by PPIHC (Pikes Peak International Hill Climb), organisers of the annual competition at the Colorado venue.”
