The seller’s address is in the next village to where I live, interestingly it must be a unique car as it is described as having semi-automatic transmission........
I would offer to go and look at it but I’m working abroad again at the moment. He is also a trader not a private seller....... 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

the roof looks like it has been painted black! (lacquer may have been peeling)

difficult to know what tax bracket it is. No electric lumber support, so could possibly be registered before 23 March'06 (or whatever the exact date is)

The semi auto probably refers to Command shift. Steve.

They`re "quick" for the size but don`t expect hot hatch performance. I must admit, I do miss that thump in the back I used to get from my Focus ST (320bhp).

Tax same as mine £535. From what I`ve read on here, these engines are bullet proof.

United Kingdom 2005 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Java Black

Don't give up on it just because of tax DrRob!!!

I have one registered June 2005 and pay £295 tax but even if I had to pay £535 it's worth it.

The SC engine is amazing, effortless and ridiculous at the same time and the ride is firm and level, surprising for a tall car.

I've had many cars, lots of sporty ones but even after 18 months of ownership of my 4.2SC, I still get a smile when I drive it and am always looking for an excuse to go out in it. I've never had that with any other car after 18 months of owning it.

As for quick, I've only been beaten by super cars away from the lights, I think it's more shock on the other driver's side than the actual speed of the RRS!!! They can't believe a 3 Tonne car in sport mode can move so fast!! The Brembo brakes too are awesome but don't brake too hard if you have passengers or your shopping in the back as I reckon you pull about 4G if you really throw out the anchors!

Mine doesn't have electric lumber support but who cares? once you've got the seat comfortable, why move it?

Go for it, you know you want to. Maybe we should start a poll as to whether you should?

Good luck, looks like a nice example. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we all point our RR's in the same direction and accelerate at the same time can we turn back time?
