1982 Stage 1 V8 - ￡9995
A tidy example of the increasingly sought-after Stage 1 V8 County Station Wagon. Under the bonnet, a classic 3.5-litre Rover V8 sucking through twin carbs and blowing an inevitably lovely waffle. Twelve seats, permanent four-wheel drive, and a double-skinned tropical roof make these beauties a tempting proposition. Yes please.
2013 Range Rover Sport 5.0 V8 supercharged - ￡75,500
The fastest vehicle that Land Rover had ever made… until the SVR came along. Still a mighty, sonorous and spectacular machine. After all, how many production vehicles could do this?
2003 Freelander 1 V6 Sport – ￡3994
The fruitiest version of the Freelander 1. That 2.5-litre V6 petrol is good for a respectable 0-60 in 10.1 seconds and will make a fun little noise along the way. This one’s finished with black, heated leather seats and posh alloys. Auto box, 84k on the clock.
Range Rover Classic LSE - ￡3300
The stretched version of these fast-appreciating classics came with a 4.2-litre, 200bhp version of the venerable Rover V8. It won’t rip your face off, but it’ll waft you swiftly about your daily duties with a beautiful, subdued throb. No MoT mentioned for this one, but apparently it’s in ‘excellent condition’ – if that’s true, this is a bargain price!
Defender 90 Icon 5.0 V8
We took one of these for a spin around Yorkshire recently, so you’ll have to believe us when we say that these Ford Racing V8s makes one of the best noises you’ll ever hear coming out of a Defender. Creators Nene Overland can tone down the aural mayhem if you prefer, but if you like it loud, you’ll love the scream it makes as you open up all 435bhp and send it beyond 4000rpm. As for the 605bhp version… good luck keeping your licence!
