LAND ROVER AT GOODWOOD
At Goodwood Festival of Speed’s 25th Anniversary, 70 iconic Land Rovers from across the decades stole the show; Range Rover Sport SVR clinched the Guinness World Record title for ‘The Fastest Mile on Two Wheels’.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FESTIVAL
70TH ANNIVERSARY PARADE
A recreation of the very first Land Rover, complete with Centre Steer, led a procession of iconic Land Rovers up the Goodwood hillclimb at this year’s Festival of Speed, in celebration of seven decades of Land Rover. The largest ever convoy to take on the hill also featured Series I models, Defenders, Freelanders, right through to the cutting-edge Range Rover PHEV.
THE SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE
Showgoers had the opportunity to hear a number of Land Rover ambassadors share tales of their own Land Rover adventures. Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the world’s greatest living explorer, reflected on his countless experiences with Land Rovers, behind the wheel of which he has broken world records, endured the most extreme climates and travelled some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes.
LAND ROVER EXPERIENCE
Our Land Rover off-road experience is not for the faint hearted and the course at 2018’s Festival of Speed proved no different. Spectators got the opportunity to buckle up as instructors put Land Rover’s unrivalled capability to the test on a series of 45-degree off-road ramps, turntables and complex obstacles.
CHARGING INTO THE FUTURE
Crowds had the chance to get up close and personal with our Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV vehicles, featuring our most innovative powertrains to date. The Plug-In Hybrid Electric technology features our cutting-edge Ingenium engines, an electric motor and battery to combine the full benefits of electrification and the legendary capabilities of Range Rover.
RECORD-BREAKING RANGE ROVER
Our 575hp Range Rover Sport SVR can reach a top speed of 174mph, but stunt man Terry Grant took the SUV’s capability to new heights by flipping it on two wheels to tackle the one mile hillclimb. Riding speeds of up to 60mph, Grant broke his own record, set back in 2011, for the ‘Fastest Mile On Two Wheels’ when he completed the run in 2 minutes 24.5 seconds.
