The Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV Performs the Ultimate Stunt

June 20th, 2016 by

Are you ready for the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV to stop you in your tracks? If so, check out this video from our favorite British car manufacturer.

The stunt was performed to “highlight the new Discovery Sport’s towing capabilities – and just how much more capable it is than the LR2/Freelander it replaces – Land Rover had the specialists at Aquarius Railroad Technologies fit the three-row sport-ute with a set of rail wheels and hooked it up to a train of three luxury carriages totaling 119 tons,” reports the staff at Auto Blog. “That’s considerably more than the 2.75 tons it’s rated for, some 60 times the vehicle’s own weight, or roughly the mass of a Boeing 757 passenger jet.”

Along with its powerful towing capabilities, the 2016 Discovery Sport SUV is well-appointed with lavish features including an eight-inch tablet-style infotainment system, flexible seating, semi-autonomous technology and Land Rover InControl Apps.
