Range Rover Sport HST Supercharged 4.2 V8
Rare HST Model with factory body kit
Only one owner from new * HPI Clear * Only 81,800 miles *
* 2 remote keys * Mot to August 2018 * Almost £6000 Recent Expenditure
2006 is the first year of production of the HST and according to HowManyLeft, this is one of only 8 cars registered that year making this a very rare early car, possibly one of the first off the production line. The same website says there are now only around 100 left on the UK roads, so this is a modern classic likely to appreciate in value.
This car has the 4.2 litre V8 engine… and it’s supercharged to boot! This transforms it into a completely different car than the TDV6 diesel with 190bhp, this supercharged petrol monster has 390bhp as standard!
With only 81k miles, our car is in excellent condition inside and out, no scratches/scuffs/dents/corrosion. It is resplendent in a beautiful and rare colour combination of metallic silver (just like the HST show car as in the launch photo) with light cream/ivory leather interior.
The wheels have been upgraded from 20″ Stormers to Overfinch style 22″ and are shod with quality Toyo tyres, all with 7mm of tread remaining. I believe the chrome side vents are non standard. I have just fitted a brand new stainless steel, full length exhaust system which adds a claimed 20 break horsepower and gives a nicer V8 throaty burble than standard, I would say only 10% louder so not too boy racerish.
I have given the car a fresh service (oil, filters, coolant, brake fluid, wheel alignment) and MOT. It also has 5 stamps from main dealers Stratstone and Hunters and independent specialists. Almost £6000 of work has been done by us prior to sale including:
* brand new stainless steel exhaust system worth £1500
* upgraded Overfinch style 22″ wheels with excellent Toyo tyres worth £1000 secondhand
* service including oil, filters, coolant and brake fluid, and wheel alignment worth £400
* new rear discs, pads, parking brake mechs, cables worth £800
* new Land Rover/Dunlop suspension compressor worth £600
* new rear diff motor and fluids worth £1000
* new battery worth £120
* new spare wheel winch worth £80
* chassis underseal worth £100
I would be interested in doing a deal with anything interesting, fast, rare, V8, classic, American, project, etc. as long as there is a bit of money in it for me.
Intro to the HST:
Land Rover revealed the latest version of the Range Rover Sport at the Goodwood Festival Press Day. Titled ‘HST’, the car carries different bodywork and interior trim, and features 20″ wheels.
“The HST allows a Range Rover Sport customer to drive the closest thing there is to the radical Range Stormer, our first ever concept vehicle and a real milestone for the company,” says Land Rover UK managing director, John Edwards.
The new HST is based on the Supercharged specification with the additional equipment including: electric sunroof, electronic locking rear differential, and privacy glass. The interior has unique hand-polished lined oak trim. Outside, the car has flush-fitting front and rear bumpers and a larger open-mouth grille. The front lower air intake is deeper and new front fog lamps are mounted in the spoiler. The lower doors and rear boot are body-coloured and a new tail spoiler is fitted. At the rear the HST features special rectangular exhaust pipes. Special 20″ ‘Stormer’ alloy wheels, chromed aluminium side vents and body-coloured door mirror cappings are unique to the car. Performance figures are unchanged from the standard Supercharged model. Prices in the UK will start at £63,000. Text – Classic Driver Photos – Classic Driver
