United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Stornoway Grey

Left foot on the brake, command shift first gear, 50% throttle and then off the brake. Don't hold the brake too long or the gearbox won't be happy.

Or buy a BMW and drive like a wannabe racer... Rolling with laughter 2012 SDV6

First raise suspension to off road height, this adds weight to the wheels due to the extra air in the system. Don't worry about being too high as the suspension will automatically lower to access height as the speed increases.

Then with gear selector in Drive and foot hard on brake rev engine to maximum, don't worry about the needle going into the red section as that is where all the power is.

Next, as soon as you rear vision disappears in a cloud of smoke side foot off brake.

You'll not actually have moved forward but will hear lots of expensive loud noises.

Then have the now ruined Sport trailered to nearest scrapyard and swap for something more suited to your needs.

On second thoughts ignore the above and learn to drive sensibly. Whistle Whistle
