Mo­tor: Ital­ian 3-litre V6 turbo diesel. Re­fine­ment: good enough, not quite the best.

On road: Again, good enough, with the sporti­est set­ting al­low­ing sporty ac­tion. Han­dled the dips and twists of Arken­garth­dale.

Off road: Jacked up on its air springs and with hill de­scent speed con­trol it’ll get you around your es­tate. Or in this case, Dun­combe Park.

Size: At 197 inches long, 67 wide and 77 high you’ll ap­pre­ci­ate the rev­ers­ing cam­era. It weighs a meaty
