Fifty years ago, the Rover car company unveiled something that no one had ever seen before; a genuinely dual-purpose vehicle that was equally at home on and off-road. Despite increasing competition, subsequent generations have kept the flag flying. The current fourth-generation model continues the trend of being at the top of its class while still being continuously improved. This fourth-generation was built to look leaner and more aerodynamic than its very blocky predecessors, but it’s still rather unmistakably a Range Rover. Our subject car is a desirable 2014 Range Rover Supercharged, housing a 500hp 5-liter V8 with the help of forced induction. With 50,000 miles, the Range Rover for sale has reportedly undergone a recent service.
The exterior is finished in black, with this Range Rover Supercharged sitting on 21-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear tires. With tinted side and rear glass and subtle “Supercharged” badging, this Range Rover is restrained, despite its supercar performance figures. Inside is a similar affair, with lashings of black leather and wood filling the cabin. On the central console, you’ll find controls for Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response system, allowing you to traverse all manner of surfaces with apparent ease—from rocks to snow to sand. Our subject car comes equipped with heated front seats and voice-activated navigation. It also features a full-length sunroof, ideal for long journeys and allowing all passengers to view above.
With a supercharged 5.0-liter V8, our subject 2014 Range Rover is no slouch. It packs 500hp under the hood, along with 461 lb-ft of torque. This is enough for a 0-60mph time in just over five seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph—figures that are quite impressive for a tank-like SUV of this size. To help handle the higher velocities achieved, this Range Rover Supercharged features Land Rover’s Dynamic Response Sport Suspension. This essentially enhances control at higher speeds by maintaining the car’s stability by monitoring the front and rear suspension systems and using the air suspension to keep the Range Rover level.
