LIKE NEW ERA ICONS?
This Range Rover Sport has almost everything going for it. Owned by one man from new with a service book showing 20 main dealer service stamps, the most recent inked earlier this year, it looks almost like it's stepped straight out of 2005.
It's a 4.4-litre naturally aspirated HSE with 300hp and the pre-facelift dashboard that looked like some kind of unbreakable military laptop.
It's also the cheapest Range Rover Sport currently on the UK's Autotrader website, and is advertised for £5490 through Kingsmead Car Sales.
The 'But' is the 237,000 miles registered on the odometer, which is a heap of miles even by the standards of modern cars - and, some might say, a terrifying amount given the reliability of some LR stuff.
I ran one of these from new in 2010 and loved it - but i hated the endless electrical niggles. And mine was a zero-miles car with full manufacturer warranty.
Of course you can pretty much guarantee that the one owner of this car has attended to everything that has ever needed doing so far.
Let's face it, he could afford to if he could afford to stick 240k miles on a juicy V8. A fag-packet calculation suggests he must have spent in the region of £60,000 on fuel since taking delivery...
So would you take a gamble on a leggy, but beautifully maintained one-owner car, or pay more for a less-travelled example but with a less solid history?
