Even more interesting is the original advert is still live, all sounds a bit odd..

That seems a short life span for an engine of that type.

Seems dubious as well, I mean who would spend 25k on an engine and box on a car advertised (so traded in for even less) at 37k?

Could have bought a doner X5 for far less, or a second-hand engine, or repaired the old one.
Notwithstanding that the engines are no longer available, even less so the older ones.

Doesn't add up..

New engine at 59,000 miles, less than 100,000 km, does not sound good.

The Aero V8 is bullit proof. Why did it require a new engine??

Also it's a complex process to change the engine, how well has the work been completed.

Not sure it adds value in my opinion

I’m confused...the original advert stated 36k but after spending £25,000 on it, they’ve increased it by 3K?
Not much of a business model!

It has an odd MOT history.

June 2016 - 50,632 miles
May 2017 - 11,193 miles
May 2018 - 3,543 miles

Peculiar

So it has probably done 100,000 plus 59,000 miles????
