In the video below, you will see polar explorer along with former Finnish rally champion Minna Ben Saunders driving the most powerful Land Rover ever built, the Range Rover Sport SVR, on a special full-scale snow-carved replica of the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit!
The icy and quite slippery three and a half mile track was a challenging surface for the 542 horsepower V8-powered SVR, but Saunders was able to tackle the track with pure precision and expertise.
Saunders is an ambassador to Land Rover and a seasoned leader of expeditions to the North and South Poles, Saunders stated: “Obviously, I had an amazing day. It was my first time driving on ice and the most fun I’ve had on four-wheels. The performance of the Range Rover Sport SVR is simply breathtaking and its poise in the corners was astounding given the slippery conditions.”
The snowy track was made easier to navigate thanks to the off-road technology of the Terrain Response 2 system, which automatically tailors a range of vehicle settings to suit the conditions, plus permanent four-wheel drive.
Mike Cross, chief engineer for vehicle integrity, said: “We pride ourselves on the all-terrain capability and composure of our vehicles, putting them through intensive hot and cold climate testing. The Range Rover Sport SVR is the most dynamic model we’ve ever produced and combining these qualities showcases the unique talents and expertise of our dedicated engineers.”
