However, President Luis Guillermo Solís has refused the use of the luxury vehicle, preferring to be driven in his own vehicle, a modest and older SUV.

The Ministro de la Presidencia, Melvin Jiménez, confirmed that the vehicle will be moved to the Ministerio de Seguridad Publica, under the administration of Celso Gamboa, who will be responsible for its sale.

Jiménez said the Presidency made a swap with Seguridad, receiving two other vehicles in return.

The ministro said that the “Vogue” styled vehicle was obtained by the former administration in a “swap” with Modelos Britanicos – the exclusive dealer of British vehicles in Costa Rica – for a 2006 model and at no cost to the government.

In details given by Jiménez, the 2013 model Range Rover has a retail value of ¢80 million colones, but, exchanged for an older and cheaper 2006 model SUV valued at ¢20 million colones, “under special consideration” in exchange for the President’s use.
