An electric Range Rover Sport has officialy become the first SUV to ascend the steep hairpin turns and 999-steps of one of China’s most revered national landmarks.
The P400e plug-in hybrid 4X4 recently made the ascent to the top of the ‘Heaven’s Gate’ steps in Hunan Province. The challenge began at the bottom of the legendary serpentine seven-mile Tianmen Mountain Road with 99 hair-pin bends.

The epic climb which achieved in under 23 minutes was made by Panasonic Jaguar Formula-E electric car racing driver, Ho-Pin Tung, and he was warned before-hand that if he crashes, he will die.
