Funnily enough the Land Rover will do that on a 45deg slope - bit better than 42degrees!!!

And amazing as it sounds my 1988 Land Rover also has a special device to stop it shooting down a hill backwards - my FOOT!!!

If you want to see some great vids look here.

And turn up the volume - the Rover V8 sounds so cool.

I have mentioned them a few times before but these Brits are incredible - their Land Rover is run on a shoestring budget(or WAS) and they often beat the works teams!!!

Their last vehicle was something like 20 yrs old and was beating works prepared pukka desert racers. Their drivers must be pretty good as well - the works teams use people like Carlos Sainz!!!

Nice to see the amateurs doing so well.

Yes with tyres of the same compound and size and with a good driver. Something tells me that the guy that did that wasn't a novice.

I'd like to see them try that in the wet

A couple of years ago, Phil Davies treated us to a demo of what his Range Rover is capable of. Standing start on something of about 40-odd degrees-ish, damp soil, and uneven, with loose shale under the soil. The RR walked it... on road tyres

Just makes you think, all that hill-climbing ability will really sell the land cruiser to the school run mothers....aargh!
