Educated guess time...

As the car has done very little in terms of mileage in the 8 years since it was manufactured I would say that the wheel bearings are almost certainly damaged.

I summise that the car must have been stood for many months if not years.

Whilst stationary for this amount of time, with the cars dead weight being mainly over the front end, the wheel bearings will flat spot and the lubrication will rest at the bottom of the bearing race.

Fitting new ones should do the trick but of course pop it into a garage for a considered opinion as my guess may be completely wrong.
