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.
Originally registered on 1st March 2002 this Range Rover has been owned by the same driver from new. Finished in the delightful colour combination of Oslo Blue with cream leather interior, the seats are piped in blue. The original book pack is present with this Range Rover and she comes with a comprehensive service history, together with a collection of invoices. These P38 Range Rovers have become well known for their durability and reliability. Earlier examples could be a little problematic, however this 2002 model was manufactured some eight years after the P38’s introduction, with most, if not all of the problems ironed out by then. Supplied with a V5C registration number, together with an MoT test Certificate valid until 24th February 2023, this is an opportunity to purchase one of the last Range Rover’s fitted with the Rover V8 engine.
