Having steadily increased in popularity since its beginnings in the late 1980s, the SUV really came of age in the 2000s. With around 20 years of development behind it, it had become something not only large and capacious but also fast and luxurious, and the Range Rover had come to represent the very best in the field, so much so that ‘Range Rover’ and ‘SUV’ are now almost synonymous. The third-generation Range Rover had been in production since 2001, and although it was a luxury model in its own right equipped with a powerful BMW V8, Land Rover decided it could be better yet. Enter the Sport. Hitting the roads in 2005, the more aggressive-looking Range Rover Sport was actually adapted from the Discovery 3’s semi-monocoque chassis, but in terms of performance and refinement it was a true Range Rover. Various V8 engines to meet different needs were installed in the Sport, with an automatic gearbox as standard. Available from 2007, the TDV8 designation denoted the 3.6 litre twin turbodiesel V8, which produced 268bhp and would push the car to 130mph, with a 0-62mph time of 8.6s. It was available in HSE trim level only.

This very tidy example of this practical and powerful SUV is presented in black with black leather interior. It comes with satellite navigation, heated electric memory seats, electric folding mirrors, adaptive cruise control and a Harman Kardon sound system. Although able to be used as a tow vehicle, this actual 4x4 has never had a tow bar fitted which means that no stress has been placed on its V8 engine. It has had 12 stamps in the service book with its last service being carried out at 78,000. These are great ‘work horses’ or tourers but either way, this cars’ powerful TDV8 engine provides terrific performance and it is being sold without reserve, what an opportunity!
