Photos: Range Rover Sport Climbs To Heaven’s Gate In China

The “Heaven’s Gate”. The sight is simply jaw dropping. The Heaven’s Gate is one of China’s most popular tourist attractions. It is built on the Tianmen Mountain. The Tianmen Mountain is 1518.6 meter high.

The Heaven’s Gate is seated atop this Mountain.

It is built on a seventeen-century-old cave. A stairway, consisting of 999 steps of it leads to it. Note that, the St Helena’s notorious Jacob’s Ladder has ‘only’ 699. Much of steps rises at 45 degrees.

Due to its height, it is always covered by mist. This makes it difficult to tell where it begins and where it ends.

 

To get to the Heaven’s Gate, the adventure begins with a ride in the world’s longest monorail Skyram. The ride spans 7.5 kilometres from the city Centre. It is followed by a scary bus ride up the 11.3km Tianmen Mountain Road (referred to as the “Dragon Road”). It also has 99 hairpin bends.

And this is where they convinced Ho-Pin Tung – a car race driver – to drive the new Range Rover Sport PHEV to.

During the ride, the Rover made a dizzying 99 turns and 999 daunting steps.

And did he succeed to reach the peak known as the “Heaven’s Gate”?

Yes, he did.

Indeed, cars are meant to drive on roads. Some are built to drive on treacherous ones. None, however, are meant to climb, yes climb, stairs, especially deadly steep stairs.

And Range as just proved to the world with the new Range Rover Sport PHEV can do both.

Designed with a “Drift Mode” that tends to make the all-wheel-drive Focus RS simpler to slide, the hot hatch has changed into a fast favorite among enthusiasts. But there’s probably a very good reason that the American automaker is giving a free driving school program with each new vehicle since, apparently, some people need it. One over-ambitious driver either overestimated his car’s abilities ...
