recently updated for more luxury and a more functional interior, as well as
improved aesthetics inside and out.
It has a 5.0L V8 producing 375hp and 375 lb-ft. of torque, mated to a
6-speed automatic with "CommandShift" function channeling power through all
The Range Rover buffs its off-road credentials with a two-speed transfer
case of the electronic variety, with an electronic center differential.
There's a dizzying array of off-road specific driver-controlled settings to
play with, like Gradient Release Control and Hill Descent Control, as well
as the advanced "Terrain Response System" with settings for General, Snow,
Mud, Sand, and Rock.

Black suv range rover assault before video Same group of bikers attacking another driver in 2011
Black Range Rover runs over bikers in NYC full
gang of bikers terrorized a dad driving with his wife and baby daughter on
the West Side Highway — chasing after their SUV and then dragging the man
out and beating him to a pulp in front of his horrified family, authorities
One of the thugs even posted a video of the sickening beatdown on YouTube
(images at left) after filming the pursuit using a helmet-mounted camera
Alexian Lien and wife
The attack seemed to come out of nowhere, authorities said. Alexian Lien,
33, of Manhattan, was driving the family's Range Rover north near West
125th Street in Harlem when the gang, known as Hollywood Stuntz, surrounded
the SUV at around 1:30 p.m., according to officials.
A biker pulled in front of the car and slowed down, forcing Lien to stop
— at which point, as seen on the gang's video, the bikers stop and a
"They take their helmets and they start to dent his car, and apparently his
tires are slashed with a knife," Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at a
press conference Monday.
The panicked dad gunned the engine, striking several bikers — one of whom
was seriously injured — as he sped off, with the pack of thugs in hot
pursuit, police sources said.
"He feared for his life and the lives of his wife and daughter," a police
The thugs chased him more than 50 blocks north, as seen on the
6-plus-minute video, which quickly went viral.
Lien was eventually forced to exit at West 178th Street in Washington
Heights because his tires were so badly damaged, police said.
Off the highway, "he is stopped again by a group of motorcyclists, he's
taken out of the car. He is assaulted," Kelly said.
One biker can be seen on the video ripping off his helmet and using it to
bash in Lien's driver's-side window.
The crew pummeled Lien on the pavement in front of his wife, Rosalyn Ng,
and their 2-year-old daughter, police sources said.
Lien, who also was slashed during the melee, was rushed to Columbia
University Medical Center. He needed stitches to his face and chest and had
two black eyes.
Sources said the injured biker was being prepped for surgery Monday night,
and doctors feared he might be left a paraplegic.
Kelly said the gang of riders, known for their rallies and daredevil
stunts, planned to congregate in Times Square that day. But he said the
gathering was nixed by the NYPD because of past problems.
Last year, "they drove down Broadway [with] over 1,000 motorcycles, dirt
bikes, quads," Kelly said. "So there was an intention to do that again this
year, but because of [police] checkpoints and enforcement in the outer
boroughs, they weren't able to make it."
In shutting down the Times Square gathering, cops arrested 15 people,
confiscated 55 motorcycles and issued 68 summonses to the bikers. None of
those arrests were connected to the attack on Lien.
Police are still investigating the assault, including checking video from a
nearby gas station where the bikers gathered afterward.

2012 Range Rover Sport vs Evoque Colorado snow-worthy Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Range Rover Sport and RR Evoque are some
of the most off-road worthy cars you can buy. But which one is better in

review by driving both Range Rovers to Gold Hill, Colorado up Lick Skillet
Road. Lick Skillet Road is one of the steepest country roads in America,
and when it snows three feet the road not only gets slick but also very
slippery. So which one of these two British cars is the best in the snow.
The old establish Range Rover or the up stark newbie Evoque. Check out this
