* Plug-in hybrid (PHEV) performance SUV climbs towering 45-degree, 999-step staircase in world-first Dragon Road challenge
* Range Rover Sport PHEV shows it’s dynamic breadth of capability on one of the world’s most challenging driving roads before tackling the epic climb to Heaven’s Gate rock arch in China
* 404PS Range Rover Sport combines Ingenium petrol power with battery technology for supreme efficiency and performance – plus zero-emissions capability
* P400e model was piloted by Le Mans class-winner and Panasonic Jaguar Racing reserve and test driver Ho-Pin Tung

The challenge began at the bottom of the legendary 11.3km Tianmen Mountain Road (known as the Dragon Road).  The showroom standard Range Rover Sport P400e took on the demanding course, with Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Ho-Pin Tung behind the wheel and the Terrain Response 2 system in Dynamic mode.

At the summit of the road, the Formula E driver optimised Terrain Response for the second part of the challenge, conquering the towering 45-degree staircase of 999 steps leading to China’s legendary Heaven’s Gate using a combination of Ingenium petrol and electric battery power.

The new PHEV powertrain gives the Range Rover Sport a zero-emission EV range of up to 50km when fully charged but Ho-Pin Tung used its advanced 300PS Ingenium petrol engine and 116PS electric motor to make short work of the road section of the challenge. The performance SUV then showed its uncompromised all-terrain credentials by climbing the steep staircase to the natural rock arch.

The Dragon Challenge is the latest in a series of adventures completed by the Range Rover Sport after the PHEV model made its debut in a race against two-time open-water swimming world champion Keri-anne Payne and endurance athlete Ross Edgley in Devon, UK.

Previous exploits include a record-setting hill-climb at Pikes Peak, USA, a record crossing of the ‘Empty Quarter’ desert in the Arabian Peninsula and a 2,170m descent of the legendary Inferno downhill course in Mürren, Switzerland.

2018 Porsche Cayenne Vs 2018 Range Rover Sport

Cayenne Inside, the Cayenne uses a dashboard that's similar to the one found in the Panamera. There's a large centre console as before, although it's far tidier thanks to the 12.3-inch touchscreen system now used. Like the Q7 and Bentayga, the Cayenne gets access to 48-volt electrics, and this means Porsche is able to offer an active anti-roll bar set-up on the options list to boost the Cayenne's handling. There will only be two versions of Cayenne at launch, the Cayenne and Cayenne S. The first uses a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol that makes 335bhp and 450Nm of torque. This is enough...
