Classic Range Rovers handle quite well for a big solid axle vehicle, but obviously you don’t throw them around like a car. They understeer if pushed too hard. They are very stable at high speed and comfortable to ride in. They were a sensation when they first came out. There is a stretch of undulating, bumpy tarmac on the way to a little town in the south east where we have a folk festival, on which I can drive the the Rangie happily at 130kph, but can’t do that with the GT without losing the body kit and bottoming out the suspension.
