Overland Classifieds :: 2008 Range Rover Supercharged

The Range Rover Supercharged is not the first vehicle that comes to mind when we think about overlanding, but that makes today’s offering all the more interesting. You’re more likely to see this model parked outside a stately home, cruising through London’s Knightsbridge, or driven by a celebrity before you’ll see one being punished on 4WD trails—and that’s a shame. The reality is that Land Rover makes most of its money from customers who want the 4WD look but who care little for all-terrain performance. While there can be no denying the company’s shift towards luxury, the Range Rover remains one of the most capable 4WDs on the market. This particular Supercharged variant produces a whopping 410 pound-feet of torque, which, mated with full-time 4WD, locking differentials, high and low range, and up to 11 inches of ground clearance, upholds Land Rover’s rugged reputation. Today’s example has covered 125,000 miles, showcases tasteful modifications, has a Cascadia Vehicle Tents rooftop tent, and is priced at a bargain $20,000.

From the Seller:

This well-maintained and overland-ready Land Rover has had tons of money and time invested [and is a] great rig which has never left me stranded. [I’m] sad to see it go, because I really like the damn thing, but looking to help fund my small business expansion. Full build thread can be found here.”

The Range Rover is fitted with a V8 motor that produces 390 horsepower, 410 pound-feet of torque, and returns a combined 14 mpg. This powerful engine propels the vehicle to 60 mph in just 7.2 seconds and will push on to an electronically limited top speed of 140 mph. Impressive on-road performance is matched with class-leading, go-anywhere credentials, thanks to full-time 4WD, a 2-speed transfer case, locking center and rear differentials, and an intelligent Terrain Response system. Furthermore, the Range Rover’s four-wheel independent strut air-spring suspension can be raised to provide 11 inches of ground clearance.
