I am selling my wife’s 2010 Range Rover Supercharged full size Autobiography. The timing chains & cam variations were done when I purchased the car in 2016. DO NOT BUY A SUPERCHARGED Range Rover that has not had this done. Land Rover Buckhead performed the repairs at a cost of $9,000. It is a known issue with the motors and generally impacts all of them. Video explanation here (https://youtu.be/DIs8YSpOqdQ).
The car has 107k miles and is up to date on all servicing. We purchased it with 76k miles in 2016. The tires and brakes were done recently and it has always been dealer serviced. It drives great and will get you anywhere. It was my 5th Land Rover and we have truly enjoyed it.
The Autobiography cars are truly special and carried an MSRP of over $130k. The Autobiography package included full semi-aniline leather seats, leather center and lower dashboard, leather center console sides, leather door panels, extended wood appointments, four-zone climate control, 20-inch wheels, and unique Autobiography badges. They are painted in Ipanema Sand Metallic with a brown interior. The headliner is in full leather which reduces the chance of sagging which plagues Rovers.
The car has been in daily use and currently needs reconditioning to be retail ready. We replaced it with a private-party purchased GL63 AMG so I did not trade it in. I am offering it for sale now before reconditioning to offer someone a better deal and the chance to manage the process.
The current reconditioning needs are: minor curb damage on each wheel, various small paint scratches and scuffs, slight coolant leak (2-3 drops/day), intermittent check engine light, slight noise from front right control arm bushing, intermittently the rear seat entertainment DVD changer will not work, front seats could stand to be dyed (no tears), small windshield chip (old and stable), and I believe a headlight bulb just went out. There was a slight driveshaft vibration that became consistent about a year ago and then resolved. We had the dealer look at it and they felt it was fine but lately it has been imperceptible. One of the mirrors is unpainted. My wife never noticed so I never had it painted. All of these issues could be dealt with for $3k or so. My preference is to sell the car as-is and let the next owner deal with making it as nice as they want it to be.
The VIN is SALMP1E4XAA312572 and there is documentation of the car on VINwiki. The Carfax is clean and there is a clean title in hand.
Kelly Blue Book estimates a value range between $13,713-$18,478.
Manheim MMR (Dealer Wholesale Auction Value) for a 2010 SC RR is $11,900. This does not account for the Autobiography package and these would be sold with no service records.
In the interest of a quick sale and based on an anticipated private party value of $19,000 and a dealer retail value of $23,000 I am offering the car for $16,000 as-is for the next week. You can email me to arrange a purchase.
