The New Range Rover Sport has made its global premiere with a dramatic world-first climb up a flooded dam spillway in Iceland. The epic ascent saw New Range Rover Sport resist the surging torrent of water flowing down the ramp of the Karahnjukar Dam – the biggest of its kind in the world – at a rate of 750 tonnes per minute. A loss of traction risked plunging down the perilous 90m drop at the base of the spillway to the valley floor below. The successful spillway ascent was screened for the first time at an exclusive launch event at Jaguar Land Rover’s Advanced Product Creation Centre at Gaydon, UK. Official James Bond stunt driver Jessica Hawkins was behind the wheel as the New Range Rover Sport demonstrated its grip, traction, performance and composure, completing the latest in a series of challenges for Land Rover’s luxury performance SUV. Previous feats include a record-setting hill-climb at Pikes Peak, a first recorded crossing of the ‘Empty Quarter’ desert in the Arabian Peninsula and a first ascent of the 999 steps to Heaven’s Gate in China, in 2018.

The brand with the Scorpion badge is introducing the new Abarth 595 range, which embodies the evolution of their most iconic model. Advanced engineering and care for details in a model capable of boldly expressing the two personalities of the brand - performance and style. The four versions of the new 595 range are compact, light, agile and importantly all unparalleled in terms of customisation. The 595 is a successful range that today presents new strengths sure to capture the trademark nuances of the Abarth character. Hatchback or convertible, the new 595 range features five versions (595, 595 Pista, 595 Turismo, 595 Competizione and 695 Rivale) with power levels from 145 to 180 HP, all Euro 6D-TEMP compliant, to satisfy all customer needs. From the technical and performance point of view, peculiarly on the 595 Competizione and the 595 Pista, the main new feature is the new Record Monza Attivo exhaust, now standard on both versions and today equipped with an active valve controlled by a Sport button. Pressing the Sport button opens the exhaust valve and the engine rumble becomes deeper and bolder. The driver can choose a gentleman driver engine sound or a tougher, sportier - and more traditionally Abarth - roar. While the 595 Competizione is somewhat more radical and designed for performance and no-compromise sports car fans, the 595 Turismo hints to the style and comfort typical of Italian GTs. There is plenty of focus on details, with premium leather interiors and Urban Pack that comes with light sensor, rain sensor and parking sensors.
