Range Rover Sport | Racing Tianmen Mountain | Land Rover USA

I think the first time you arrive here
it’s just totally mind-blowing. That’s steep. I’m here to do the Dragon Challenge
to drive the Range Rover Sport. The 99 turns and then drive up 999 steps,
all the way to Heaven’s Gate. [Traditional song being sung] Tianmenshan is just shrouded in myth and legend. Singer: Woo-wee Voice on radio: Ready? Voice on radio: Go! This challenge is the most extreme one we’ve done yet. But we’re really pushing the limits.
There really is a chance of failure. As far as I know nothing has
ever been tried like this before. This is unheard of. It’s crazy. It’s very steep. It’s 45 degrees.
So that’s like this right? I can’t see anyone living, if the car
started rolling back down the hill. Voice on radio: Keep on track, all good. Voice on radio: Yeah we’re clear, don’t worry. Voice on radio: You be very careful up there please. Voice on radio: We’re clear, don’t worry. Voice on radio: Everything’s clear. Everyone’s out of the way. Voice on radio: All clear. [Cheering from crowd] Voice on radio: Back wheels are on the top. Yes! Yes! Still shaking. The adrenaline is something
I’ve never experienced before. I guess the mountain gave us
one shot to make it up here. All the lucky ribbons, we put on the mountain yesterday
and today they helped us to bring us up here. Land Rover. Above and Beyond.

  1. Pathetic PR stunt. Just think about the damage it might have caused to the thousands of steps and other cultural assets in the area.

  2. Don't let this distract you from the fact that in 2015 Richard Hammond drove up the near vertical walls of the mighty Claerwen Dam in Wales in a 1940's Land Rover.

  3. Lots of people here say stuff like “now do it without the cable”. I believe the cables are only for safety purposes, like the helmet he’s wearing. They are not using he cables to pull the car up the stairs.

  4. Amazing! Just Amazing! Except think about the damage to those stairs and the Utter Uselessness of this Stunt! Also since many people are asking, Getting DOWN was easier that Going UP! This is because the Range Rover has hill descent control and the probably used the steel cables as well!

  5.

  6. having been there only a couple years ago, i knew that the Rover could not have navigated the steps (left or right) of the very first section of switchbacks. this is true. they modified the ramp on the right, and added a temporary landing area.

  7. I guess no one in Hunan speak their own Xiang language anymore since the Chinese government aims to eliminate all regional languages in the name of "national unity"

  8. I think I'm mostly bothered by the disingenuous nature of this stunt. Range Rover hypes up the danger and suspense, but on close examination, it appears to be relatively safe.

    The hype: At 3:42, a Range Rover rep states "I can’t see anybody living if the car started rolling downhill". At 3:49, a Chinese official states "If he crashes, he will die."

    The reality: The car is attached to steel cables running along the steps for the car to grab onto in the event that it starts to roll backwards. Range Rover has even verified in the comments that the cables are placed for safety. If you look at 4:50 – 4:51, you can even see how the cables get pulled to the left as the car swerves to the left. And in the end, the car's back wheels stop short of the landing. If you look at 5:35, this is due to the fact that the cable runs straight up and anchors to the rock at the top right of the landing (where the tires rest against the rock).

    Again, I just feel that if you perform a stunt that has has all the safety measures in place, don't try to sell it as being so dangerous.
