An outstanding landmark design that almost single-handedly created the booming market in dual-purpose 4x4s, the Range Rover was greeted with universal acclaim on its arrival in 1970 and has remained the class leader, despite ever increasing foreign and domestic competition, ever since. The fact that the original lasted in production for an amazing 24 years before being replaced in 1994 only serves to illustrate the soundness of the original concept. Indeed, the 'old' Range Rover - evocatively renamed Range Rover Classic - did not disappear immediately but continued to be built for another year alongside the new version.
As the Range Rover matured, the range of available models was extended to meet changing market expectations, one of the most significant developments being the introduction of the 'Sport' version in 2005. The Sport used the semi-monocoque, independently suspended chassis first seen in the Discovery III, albeit of shorter wheelbase, while offering a choice of high-performance power units. At the top of the pile was a 4.2-litre supercharged Jaguar V8 producing 390bhp, an output that would have been considered respectable for a supercar not that many years previously. A six-speed automatic gearbox was standard regardless of the engine type, and the Sport also featured variable ride height air suspension, 'Terrain Response' automatic transmission/suspension management, and 'Dynamic Response' automatic roll control. In 2009 the Sport was face-lifted, incorporating a restyled and more aerodynamic front end. The engine range was revised at the same time, one of the more important specification changes being the enlargement of the Ford/PSA V6 turbo diesel option from 2.7 to 3.0 litres; power went up to 240bhp and torque to 440lb/ft while both fuel consumption and emissions were improved.
This desirable Sport HSE turbo diesel was first registered to its late owner on 30th September 2010 and currently displays a total of 27,916 miles on the odometer. The car is taxed to 30th September 2013 and is offered with Swansea V5C document.
