Link: https://carbuzz.com/news/watch-the-range-rover-sport-svr-outperform-a-ferrari-458-italia According to the video, the new Range Rover Sport SVR beats the Ferrari 458 in the Tianmen Road hill climb. It doesn't barely win. It crushes it. 9 minutes 51 seconds for the SVR versus 10 minutes and 31 seconds for the 458. The Ferrari is MUCH lighter. Similar HP although lacking in torque compared to SVR. The 458 can brake, corner and has aero (although aero not as relevant at these hill climb speeds). The only thing I can think of is that Tianmen Road elevation is 5000 feet. The SVR is supercharged and thus power loss at altitude is not anything like the 80hp or so the 458 loses. So in this cherry-picked head to head the SVR seems well suited with its higher torque and supercharged engine or so I am thinking. I don't have any other explanation than that. Anyone else think it is just the supercharger making up for the altitude vs the NA 458 engine or am I missing something? Either way, this is a great PR piece for Land Rover. Hand pick a course perfectly suited for the SVR and beat up a Ferrari. Might have to get one to put next to my 458!
