The range rover that costs close to $200,000 and has a 5Litre engine with a V8 supercharged turbo…. Yes you did read that right. This was of course Jeff’s car in the Alive film and he placed the “d*ck” individual that you must have in a movie. Obviously this car suit him very well.
This car is an absolute monster. Not just in its size which is 5.093lbs….. But in the amount of power it has. As we mentioned its a 5.0 Litre V8 engine. If this car weighed less it would have a similar acceleration as a Ferrari 458. To put that into perspective, it’s goes frecking fast! But apart from the weight and power its still a 4×4 road car. Meaning the control and handling is great. Smooth and doesn’t understear which is a big issue for most in its category.
How Much Does it Cost to Buy (And to Rent?)
Well brand new to buy this is going to cost you an arm and a leg. Then they will take close to $200,000 from you. That’s just the basic model too. If you get all the optional updates then this is closer to $300,000. In British money that’s just a shade under a quarter million….. So assuming we can’t afford that much, how much does it cost to rent for a few days. Well we contacted our go to super car hire guys and the team at Ferrari hire UK (because they were apparently involved in the Range rover discussions previously to this 5L giant coming out) and they gave us a quote of £3,500 per weekend. Or £995 per 24 hour period.
Obviously I disagreed.
But the point is made that value is everything. If someone is willing to spend this much on a 4×4 then its likely that the car is worth that much. Although to you and me I would rather spend that on a Lamborghini or a Aston Martin, for day to day use I can see this being better. That’s why nowadays these huge, powerful 4 by 4s are actually classed as supercars. It’s strange to think but it is the truth. I’ve also embedded my favourite video review of this car below, as you will see its very very quick as we have already established.
