Harry Metcalfe is not only the editor emeritus of Evo magazine, but he also helped Jaguar Land Rover set up its Special Vehicle Operations division that made the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Little wonder then that he got his driving gloves on it before the rest of us. And we're glad he brought along a video camera or two.
Jaguar's AJ-V8 engine is many things to many cars. It may be old, sure – having been developed with Ford money back in the late 1990s – but it's also grown to be seriously powerful, with output rising from 240 horsepower in the original 3.2-liter version to 575 hp in its latest 5.0-liter supercharged form. It's rather ubiquitous, too, powering an assortment of Jaguar, Aston Martin, Ford, Lincoln and Land Rover models like the one you see here. And it's one of the sweetest-sounding en
Jaguar and Land Rover have been increasing their level of cooperation over the last few years. The latter is helping the former develop its first SUV, for example, but don't think that the relationship only goes one way. The former is also lending the latter its expertise in creating performance vehicles, and that will soon come to bear on the upcoming RS version of the Range Rover Sport.
Sunday's incident between a black Land Rover Range Rover Sport and a fleet of motorcycles in New York City has been a topic of conversation across the internet, particularly here at Autoblog, where you, our readers, have racked up over 175,000 views and over 600 comments - some of which were quite cross - as of this writing. When the story first surfaced, conflicting reports from outlets as varied as the Daily Mail and Fox News made it difficult to determine what was what. Now, though, there's b
Video has emerged of an altercation between the driver of a Land Rover Range Rover Sport and a large group of motorcyclists. The incident, which occurred yesterday afternoon in New York City, looks to have been started when the Land Rover driver bumped one of the motorcyclists (it's difficult to tell from the video whose fault this was). The incident momentarily brought traffic to a standstill, but escalated anew when the SUV driver ran down a number of riders while attempting to leave the scene
Truth time: When I wrote my first drive report of the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, I left out a pretty cool, pretty important detail. You see, in addition to doing all of the nifty off-road stuff and blasting through the winding roads of the English countryside, Land Rover pulled quite the stunt by having us drive through an airplane. That is, we scaled a ramp, drove into the passenger compartment of a Boeing 747, and drove out of the plane. They even left some seats inside for effect.
Let's face it – motorheads can't seem to get enough of races that pit cars versus planes. Well, at least that's what we're led to believe by looking at the sheer volume of the things on YouTube today. The real truth is that automakers with newly minted, fast vehicles – and big marketing budgets – love to see the drama of a land-bound car racing a seemingly insurmountable aircraft.
