Here at Pikes Peak, Colorado preparations are well under way for the New Range Rover Sport to take on the mighty mountain to the top. The first in a series of #DrivenChallenges.

A mountain known for the speedier side of the modified car circuit standing at 14,100 ft Pikes Peak will push this production vehicle to its limits. Hairpin bends, high altitude and low temperatures. Steep terrain, ice and sometimes unforgiving weather adds to the challenge.

Speaking to the engineers you get a real sense of enthusiasm and excitement. The New Range Rover Sport’s supercharged V8 engine adds to the sense of speed ahead. The terrain response 2┬ácaptures my attention. Without need for driver intervention the car will adjust for sand, gravel, road, rocky terrain and more. And being 420 kg lighter than the previous model, the sport in the name starts to more than live up to the tag.

The mountain awaits. The car is preparing, the crew are excited and at the ready. One car. One challenging mountain. Looking forward to seeing it full on.
