Why is it always diesels that get the eyeraping treatment... I think I've seen this particular shed before. 'No rips or tears in leather' - conveniently hides the drivers seat with a cover. At least its been cleaned before taking pics I guess.

I actually like it !!

Safe, as it can be seen for miles...... it is unlikely to be stolen.... and only observers need the shades....

Oh dear, just checked the DVLA history.... Maybe those rear tyres will (or did) produce those 'bangs' ?
MOT date is before the 'New' (eg. might-be-tricky-for-diesels) MOT rules came in too......

I'm with Dave on this one, it's pretty much G4 Challenge look. Whoever has done it (very recently by the wet look paint job) has at least done the pillars and door shuts rather than leaving them whatever the original colour was. Shame about the engine, wheels and Sport vents in the front wings though, with a V8 and big bore stainless exhaust it could be quite decent (ish),

Apart from the grill and wheels I quite like it. I wouldn't have fitted a twin exhaust to a stright six engine either, that's a bit naff but other than that. At least someone recognised the P38 as being worth their effort and money.

Maybe this was the inspiration ?

No, I'm sorry. There's not a single modification on that car that shows any taste whatsoever. The paint might be a decent job but it's the wrong colour for pretty much anything and the two tone bonnet is hideous. You might just get away with the sort of thing on a Mustang. In Vegas.

The rest of it is just stick on tat. The wheels are horrific, the vents are pure wannabe L322 and the rash of badges on the bootlid makes me thing of a pebble dashed toilet the morning after.

I'm out!

Something tells me the paint job isn't all that great. I think it's been done without removing ANY bits of trim. The rubber strips above the rear bumper that always flap out are painted orange too!

It might look better if the areas around the windows were all the same colour.

Some bits are OEM faded grey, some are OEM but still black, the leading edge of the rearmost window is carbon fibre vinyl and the rearmost pillar is heavily orange peeled gloss back.

I think it needs to all be the same shade of black (whether gloss, matte, satin whatever) and to have blacked out windows to look right. However, blacked out windows at the front would be illegal. I think it also needs the door handles to match the upper half to break up the sea of orange down the sides.

The wheels, grille and headlights need to just go though. They look awful and much better options could be found, I'm sure.

Needs to fix the bonnet and boot text too. It's a RANGE ROVER, NOT A RANGEROVER!

Makes me wonder, if they can afford a SVR at least have a smart looking one, I wonder if the seats have orange leather inserts,, yuk !

Hmm... then perhaps the 'problem' can be fixed with a roof rack and some stickers ?

I hate to say it, but I kind of like it. You wouldn't lose it in a car park...
