Rovers are not sports cars. That RR sport has a 400hp supercharged V8. Without a supercharger its 300hp. Which is considerably more than the discovery engine. The problem with supercharging is, you will need stronger valves, pistons, etc. to handle the higher compressions and stress that the supercharger puts on the engine. In the end it will cost you more than its worth in my opinion. I know what you mean, we have a supercharged jaguar and I LOVE the sound and feeling you get, as you are sucked back in your seat rocketing past the idiot in his low rider honda with a rumbling muffler. I would like to supercharge my rover, but its just not in the cards.
A Land Rover doesn't leak! It marks its territory.
What do Jaguars and possums have in common? Both play dead at home and get killed on the road.
