Power, poise and polish are said to be true measures of success. If that’s the case, the Range Rover Supercharged surely is the benchmark by which all others are judged.
With 510 HP and 461 ft-lbs of torque the Range Rover certainly doesn’t pull any punches. Put your foot to the floor and brace yourself: your back will be pressed into the seat, the steering will demand attention, and you’ll be left wondering how on earth you got all this heft going so quickly. But this isn’t just straight-line acceleration. This iteration of the Range Rover, now in its 4th generation, actually corners. Well. Really well, in fact. Then there are the massive brakes, because, let’s face it, sooner or later you will need to slow down, in the very least, to refuel. But even that has been improved over previous generations — this is no longer a slow, sloppy off-roader that looks great but fails to impress the driver. On the contrary, this is now a driver’s SUV, that responds to the slightest twitch of the accelerator pedal, and commands the road, whether paved or not.
Clad in rich leather, this Range Rover is attractively appointed with a black interior nicely complimented by a light dove grey centre leather trim panel that carries throughout the dashboard and onto the door panels to break up what could have been a very cavernous and monotonous interior. Perhaps one of the nicest interiors we have ever had the pleasure of seeing in a modern Range Rover. A Meridian Sound System, a heated steering wheel, navigation system, self-parking (yes, it will steer itself into that tight parking spot, making you look like a pro, whether you are or aren’t) and all the power options you would expect further round out the luxurious interior. The exterior has also met with careful attention to detail: the usual aluminum coloured front side fins have been replaced with factory special ordered body colour (in this case, white) blades, and 20” aluminum wheels.
This truly is a special Rover. The original owner designed it to their exacting personalized specifications. We theorize that it must have been a designer or architect who ordered this vehicle new; it is now ready to be enjoyed by another individual who values subtle design nuance. Perhaps you?
