The Range Rover, a large luxury four-wheel drive sport utility vehicle launched in 1970 is now in its fourth generation. In 1967, the first Range Rover prototype was built with the classic Range Rover shape clearly discernible although with a different front grille and headlight configuration. The design of the Range Rover was eventually finalised and signed off in 1969. After 25 years from the introduction of the first generation Range Rover, the second generation Range Rover model, designation P38A, was introduced for the 1995 model year with an updated version of the Rover V8 engines. The new model offered more equipment and premium trims positioning the vehicle above the Land Rover Discovery to face ever increasing competition in the SUV marketplace.
This very well cared for P38, 2001 model, with the 4.0 litre, V8 engine is presented in HSE specification with Epsom Green coachwork and light stone leather trim with black piping and wood door cappings. Our vendor took ownership in 2018 from the third owner who had stored the car in her garage in Henley-on-Thames for nearly a decade covering less than 10,000 miles in that time. Our vendor then spent circa £2,000 recommissioning the car for his own use. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive service history, mainly with Lancaster Land Rover Reading, which indicate the mileage is genuine with the last recorded service at 65,921 miles in 2007, before our vendor comprehensively serviced the car again at 71,111 in 2018. The car is presented with an MoT test certificate valid until September 2020. The works have included a new air suspension compressor and sensors, recent invoices include listing parts and labour to bring the car to good order. The vendor informs us the interior is in good order as is the bodywork, the headlining is firm and the original carpets in the cabin and rear are all in good condition.
