New Range Rover has hosted flag for many of the firsts in its brand, but some doesn’t thinks so!
Well, taking the mettle in their own striding way, we now are about to name one person here who has planned to replenish the new Sport in the harsh terrain for a fastest world record of land vehicle crossing it.
Not needed to be anguish over him, he is the 47 year-old Spanish off-road racer, Moi Torrallardona with 10 successive Dakar Rally participations, and is about to put the New Range Rover Sport on test at Dawn to dusk drive in the record breaking time at treacherous ‘Empty Quarter’ terrain.
Specifically in the images, one can see vehicle going last moment preparation for the test.
Making known, the start line of treacherous ‘Empty Quarter’ terrain is slated at Wadi Adda Wasir in Saudi Arabia, while the end is stretched all the way to the border of United Arab Emirates, covering a distance of more than 1000kms.
However, the drive in this dazzling terrain maybe a dream for all off-roaders around the world, but we guess, it’s not everybody’s cup of tea, because crossing this 1000+kms patch includes undergoing temperaments like surviving 50 degrees C in the day, and the quenching sand dunes rising 850ft into the air.
We are informed that sand specialist vehicles only are driven in this patch. However, it will be interesting to see whether this sophisticated luxury British off-roader will be able to survive those harsh bruising contexts of hardworking bare basics 4×4 supplemented vehicles or not.
