    It's not portrayed as "track-ready" by JLR - just the most powerful Range Rover to go on sale.

    I always like sport trucks like the Typhoon, but to say "track ready" just doesn't seem right. I don't care how sporty it is, it's still a truck and doesn't belong on a track. And yes, I get it that it will probably never be on a track, just seems wrong to even say it.

    The Range Rover Sport is the ultimate combination - no car that can beat it on track can even get close off-road - and no car that could beat it off-road could get close on track - it's not the best at either but by far the best compromise.

    Whether anyone really needs a luxury performance car with such high off-road capability is debateable - but it sells well!

    I'll raise you an Audi RS6 on beating it both on the track AND off-road.

    Like most new SUVs besides the Wrangler, the Range Rover Sport is a joke off road. The tires and wheels alone can tell you that.

    No, it doesn't. Dodge Challenger outsold the entire Land Rover brand in the US in 2013.

    The difference in ground clearance would write-off the RS6 at the first off-road obstacle - that's if it's track tyres could get it that far !!
