The ultimate boy’s toy: Bowler EXR-S for sale

Are you gigantically wealthy? Have you already covered literally every automotive base with a huge collection of cars? But do you still feel there’s space in your life for a full-on Dakar Rally machine that you can drive to the golf club? Do you need to fill that space right now?

If you’ve answered yes to those questions, worry not. McGurk Cars in Warwickshire has the only car in the entire world that’s capable of meeting you’re requirements for sale, this 2014 Bowler EXR-S.

For those that don’t know, Bowler Motorsport builds Land Rover-based off-road racers that are nuclear bunker tough, and ferociously fast.

The Range Rover-alike EXR is the top-of-the-range model. The EXR-S is the road-going version. Not that much has been done. The interior is slightly more accommodating, the wheels and tyres have been changed and that’s about it.

Oh, and because it doesn’t have to meet racing rules, they’ve fitted it with Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8. Which has 510bhp. So this enormous, near two ton beast will do 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds. And it’s limited to 155mph.

It’s not just about straight line speed, either. Despite it’s sheer size and bulk, it’ll run rings around most sports cars. It’s like a Porsche GT3, but it works just as well off-road as on.

It is the ultimate boy’s toy. But as we suggested at the start, you would have to be insanely rich to be to justify it. So rich that asking price is small change.

There’s no easy way of saying it: it’s £185,000. Even so, if we had the money, we’d already be in the car to go and buy it.

What do you think?
