How do you go about proving that your car is a high performance monster? The Range Rover Sport Dragon Challenge does just that. The Tianmen Mountain Road in the Hunan Province of China is one of the world\u2019s most intimidating drives. Filled with hairpin turns\u201499 to be exact\u2014and sheer rock walls, there\u2019s little doubt as to how this road came to be compared to a white dragon lying on the mountainside. The road is only seven miles long, but it still poses an incredibly difficult journey, one that inspires the same thrills you might feel riding a rollercoaster.\r\n\r\nPlenty of other cars and racers have taken on the Tianmen Road, but none have added in a climb up the 999 steps that lead to Heaven\u2019s Gate. Part of the challenge is the 45 degree angle climb. It\u2019s a grueling test that so far only the Range Rover Sport has been able to conquer.\r\n\r\nDriven by Ho-Pin Tung, Le Mans 24 Hour Winner and Jaguar Formula E Racing driver, the New Range Rover Sport SUV pitted itself against the challenge. The plug-in hybrid offers an impressive 398hp. Not only is that engine capable of going 0\u201360 in 6.3 seconds with a range of 31 miles in full electric, but it\u2019s also capable of easily climbing its way to heaven\u2019s gate. And it did it in impressive time, finishing the course\u2014all the turns and the stair climb\u2014in only 22 minutes and 41 seconds.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
