Governor Wike’s BEAST – Range Rover Vogue





In our earlier post, we reviewed President Buhari’s official car – Mercedes Benz S550; And based on its features, the president’s BEAST truly justifies its Nickname as The BEAST. Well enough said, let’s take a look at the official car of the Governor of Rivers state.

Vehicle Overview

Gov. Wike uses a Range Rover Vogue as his official car.

The Land Rover’s flagship Range Rover SUV isn’t the kind of car you want to drag through muddy tracks and rocky off-road courses; even if it is still capable of doing that.

The cabin is spacious and luxurious. The high seating position and tall body give you excellent visibility down the road. The V8 diesel engine provides effortless performance despite its considerable size and it has an on-road presence that few SUVs can match.

No wonder its competitors include the likes of Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Porsche Cayenne and Lexus LX 570.
