    My car

    I shouldn't like this car at all and I say that it is my wife's really, but I drive virtually all the time.

    Why shouldn't I like it? Because I am not a fan of off-roaders and have spent most of my driving life in Alfa's, but with the exception of my beloved 166, this is honestly my favourite car.

    Yes it isn't a sports car and it has a lot of weight, but the road prescence is wonderful.

    This is a Range Rover Black, which is the last of the special editions created to get rid of the older model before the new one came online and we bought it from new and it has been great in general.

    Why am I writing this now? Well, we have just come back from holiday. The original plan was to take 3 weeks and drive to Tuscany and then do a leisurely drive back to London. Well for various reasons, this ended up only being a 7 day holiday near Venice. Having split the drive to Italy in two, I decided to do the drive back in 1 day and in all honesty, got out of the car in London, not exhausted, but feeling fine.

    This car eats miles without you or your passengers being stressed or noticing and it is able to move from twisty, small Italian roads to motorway's seamlessly.

    Buy one and you will not regret it

    My car

    Picked up my SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic about a month ago and so far it's been the best all-round vehicle I've ever owned.

    Compared to the old Sport, the II Gen is far more agile on the road even in a low-spec engine, and actually possesses a sports car character similar to that already exhibited in a Cayenne or X6. Thus it lives up to its Sport badge now more than ever.

    However, my one reserve is that JLR must invest more in their fuel efficiency development - then perhaps the real choice, the 5L S/C V8, might be more viable. Even in the SDV6 I've struggled to get above about 28 MPG so far (albeit with a keen right foot).

    My colour choice was Firenze Red which I am very pleased with - although next time I will probably go for a more discrete dark grey or black. I went for an all-black interior with black headlining and piano black trim, which looks fantastic but isn't such a welcoming trim choice for such a luxurious motor. It's fantastic for me as a driver who very rarely carries passengers (hence why I didn't bother with the rear entertainment package or 7-seat option) but I feel the Sport would be even more of a rival for its big brother Vogue if it were specified with a lighter interior.

    The ride is far better than I expected, but it's no Phantom and there is definitely a marked difference between it and a Vogue; it's much firmer and inspires confidence when being thrashed around the countryside.

    I've not been off-road in it yet but I'm sure it performs br
