This imposing car combines the feel of a 4 wheel drive SUV with the driving feel of something much lower and sportier. With the chassis of the Land Rover Discovery and an engine, suspension and brakes taken from Jaguar, it really does feel like a much more nimble vehicle than it ought to. Added to that is the look and heritage that comes with the Range Rover marque. It is great to drive and has all the refinement that can be expected from a Range Rover.
This particular car also benefits from factory fitted upgraded 20" alloys, Harmon/Kardon audio system, running boards and the wood interior pack. The private plate, which is valued at around £400, is included with the car.
I have always wanted to own one of these and am pleased that I picked this one. Unfortunately, a change in job and a 110-mile daily commute means it is no longer the right car for me so now it needs a new home.
The car has the below specification.
- Full tan leather interior with electrically adjusted front seats, memory drivers seats and heated front and rear seats.
- AM/FM with satellite navigation (no nav disc), in-dash 6 CD changer and aux input.

In terms of condition, it is almost 12 years old. As such it isn't pristine but it really does look good for its age. The exterior has some marks but these are relatively minor. The worst point is that the nearside rear light has a small crack in the cluster.
