Did LR UK ever sell n/a petrol V8 sports?

Just wondering did LR UK sell a naturally aspirate, ie non supercharged petrol model?

How could I tell I'd so - does the supercharged sport have the telltale 'whine' or does the V8 rumble drown it out?! MY10 HSE 3.0 TDV6 : Santorini Black : Ebony Interior w/Anigre wood : Privacy Glass (total) : Sunroof : Sidesteps : Hybrid TV : Detachable Tow Kit : Spare Wheel Cover : 22" Dished Supersports

United Kingdom 

Only the 2005 G4 vehicles that they released to the 2nd hand market. I'm pretty sure no non S/C sports were released otherwise but ISTBC. 2005 Zambezi TDV6 - Gone but not forgotten
2009 Alaska TDV8 - Gone and much missed.

There were quite a few non-G4 retailed and we often take them back in part-exchange even now. Only a handful mind you, as the MPG was lower than SC as was the performance and trim levels.

We sold a nice Black/Black with 20" in the summer. They can be good value for money as they are not as valuable as 2.7 of the same age.

Thanks guys

Only reason I ask is because there's a mate of mine - Ewok who was briefly on here until people told him how dangerous his home made 7 seated mod was maintains his 4.2 s/c will do between 450 - 500 miles per fill aka 28 - 30 mpg

I have argued with him that it's not possible - even LR themselves say the s/c on extra urban run will only do approx 22

Can anyone confirm he's likely talking crap

I just think he doesn't like to admit he's bought a thirsty guzzler and is trying to convince everyone (himself included) that it's really economical! MY10 HSE 3.0 TDV6 : Santorini Black : Ebony Interior w/Anigre wood : Privacy Glass (total) : Sunroof : Sidesteps : Hybrid TV : Detachable Tow Kit : Spare Wheel Cover : 22" Dished Supersports

he's honestly fell out with me over it!

he claims his E46 M3 (which has a 60litre petrol tank) will do 500 miles when his wife is driving it too - this equated to 41mpg!

I dont know why he tries to kid me about it - i dont mind whether it does 10mpg or 30mpg - it's still a 4.2 s/c RRS he's driving - i'd be happy to be driving it instead of bitching about it's a really fuel efficient motor. if i wasn't doing the miles i do i'd love a s/c but cannot justify the mpg compared to my TDV6. MY10 HSE 3.0 TDV6 : Santorini Black : Ebony Interior w/Anigre wood : Privacy Glass (total) : Sunroof : Sidesteps : Hybrid TV : Detachable Tow Kit : Spare Wheel Cover : 22" Dished Supersports
