Twenty-five years after the introduction of the original Range Rover, the second-generation (model-designation P38A) was introduced for the 1995 model year, it was based on the 8” longer chassis of the old long wheelbase model, and with an updated version of the Rover V8 4.6 litre engine. There was also the option of a 2.5 litre BMW six-cylinder turbodiesel with a Bosch injection pump. This was the first diesel injection with electronic controls in a Land Rover, before common rails were introduced. This was a result of BMW's subsequent ownership of the Rover Group and hence the Land Rover brand. The new model offered more equipment and premium trims, positioning the vehicle more strongly above the Land Rover Discovery than the old original, to meet the increased competition in the SUV marketplace. This model was the last to feature the Rover V8 engine and interior leather supplied by Connolly, who went out of business in 2002. It was the first model to feature Satellite Navigation as an option.
This excellent Range Rover 4.6 Vogue was supplied by St. Helier Garages in Jersey to Mr. Cummings of Grouville, he owned this car until November 2019 and only covered 13,400 miles during his ownership. The car was re-registered just before being imported to the UK in order to retain the very valuable registration number J757. Finished in Blenheim Silver with Charcoal Grey leather interior, this Range Rover Vogue has only had one owner and is supplied with a MoT test certificate which expires in February 2021, it will have an V5C registration document by the time of the auction.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a very low mileage example of one of the last Range Rover’s fitted with the Rover V8 engine.
