The first-generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996. The original car was not designed as a luxury-type 4x4; while certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards designed to be washed down with a hose. Features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors, air conditioning, cloth/leather seats and wooden interior trim were fitted later. The Range Rover was a body-on-frame design with a box section ladder type chassis similar to contemporary Land Rovers. The Range Rover utilised coil springs as opposed to leaf springs, permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel disc brakes and was originally powered by the Rover V8 engine.
Supplied originally by Mann Egerton & Co. Ltd in Hatfield on 2nd February 1992, this Range Rover presents in delightful condition. The Aspen Silver coachwork is virtually unmarked, and the grey leather has a patina commensurate with the age and mileage. The 3.9 litre V8 engine starts on the button and runs well, and we are advised she drives as good as she looks. Service history is important on these classic Range Rovers and this one has been very well cared for, with two service books. Supplied with a V5 registration document and the original handbooks, this Vogue SE comes with the cherished number plate of 1135 UN. Driving a Range Rover is effortless, particularly in automatic guise as this one is, the air conditioning and electric seats all aid towards driver comfort. These fabulous cars always attract admiring glances wherever they appear. This super example will attract more than most.
