One of the cars owned by the Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan the Range Rover was on sale a couple of months ago. However, the luxury SUV to this date has not been purchased by anyone. The SUV is the top-spec Autobiography variant, with 35,000 kilometers on the odometer. The seller is willing to part with the Range Rover for about 24 lakh rupees, which is actually Rs. 25,000 higher than what’s quoted in the ad.
Well, 24 lakh rupees is a lot of money for what is essentially a 13-year-old luxury SUV that’s no longer built. Also, it’s a petrol powered SUV, in a market dominated by diesel. Other factors that buyers would consider is the spare parts scene. The SUV being out of warranty means the absence of another crucial safety net. Moreover, it features a ‘VIP’ number, which again commands a premium in the resale market. It runs on air suspension, which is highly regarded for excellent ride comfort. Street presence is impressive, to say the least, and expect doors to be opened when you arrive in a Range Rover. This particular example as a 4.4 liter V8 petrol engine which puts out about 306 Bhp of peak power.
The seller, claims that it has a very detailed service history, and if there’s proof to back this up, the buyer does have a good opportunity to find out what exactly she/he’s getting into while purchasing the car. It’s run only 35,000 kilometers, which is an average of fewer than 3,000 kilometers every year.
Meanwhile, the seller claims that the SUV has received an air suspension overhaul – a part that is quite costly to replace, and one that generally requires replacement after a few years of use.
