From the foot of the mountain to the top of the clouds, the entire drive took a cumulative 21 minutes and 47 seconds.
The new performance luxury SUV became the first vehicle to climb the fabled stairway to Heaven. It was piloted by Tung Ho-Pin, the Netherlands-born Chinese racer who currently races in the FIA World Endurance Championship for Jackie Chan DC Racing.
