SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED
An early immaculate P38A Range Rover 4.0SE with 63,003 miles from new.
Permanent 4-wheel drive, switchable automatic transmission, electronic air suspension with variable ride height, electric heated exterior mirrors, rear light guards, alarm, dual zone air conditioned climate control, AM/FM Stereo, cassette player, power locks, cruise control, speed warning, heated leather seats, power sunroof, tilt steering wheel, analogue clock, electric windows, ultrasonic alarm system, full-size driver and passenger airbags, upper and lower tailgate release, asymmetrically-split rear seats, folding rear parcel shelf, puddle lamps.
Finished in stunning Biaritz Blue, (Code 965), this early phase one Range Rover has an almost faultless exterior with a rich, deep, glossy paint and helps demonstrate the pampered ownership this example has enjoyed from new. All the trim, glass, rubbers and lenses defy the 22 years of age and miniscule markings and one small ding will assure the sceptical believing this to be a fully restored car rather than an unmolested cherished classic. The original Dealer supplied number plates are still fitted as is the rear window sticker. The chassis and floors are structurally perfect still coated in the factory protection. One for the appreciative collector.
To experience such a clean, well preserved and fully functioning interior such as this is a rare delight that will give all the occupants immediate assurance that this vehicle is the exception. The soft subtle light grey leather seats complement the unmarked burr walnut trim beautifully. All carpeting including the boot area has been protected by genuine Range Rover rubber mats from new and all door material is pristine. The original tools, jack and wheel brace are spotlessly clean in the boot area. All electrical equipment is operational with no warning lights. A sublime cockpit.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Rover 4.0-Litre V8 engine is beautifully refined giving a linear power delivery thanks to alloy heads, aluminium alloy block and multipoint fuel injection. With 190bhp and an impressive 236Nm of torque at just 3000rpm progress is spirited yet relaxed. The automatic transmission is incredibly smooth and controlled through the single lever ‘H’ gate case incorporating both the transmission and transfer case for ‘off-road’ control.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Optional genuine Land Rover five spoke alloy wheels are unmarked and shod in Good Year 255/55 R18 tyres with ample grip. Four-channel all-terrain ABS power braking with disc brakes offer immense safe stopping power.
Registered on the 23rd January 1995 this P38A Range Rover is an early phase one example and rolled off the production line just three months after the launch, making it highly sought after. Supplied by Roy Stratton Land Rover to the first of four former keepers a wonderful log of letters between them exists verifying the provenance of this iconic classic. Enjoyed solely by enthusiasts dedicated to the marque for long periods and each seeking the very best preserved example now proving difficult to find. Expenditure totalling thousands of pounds reveals the care this car has enjoyed. Supplied by KGF Classic Cars in February 2014 we were delighted to have this car back and look forward to meeting the next owner who will experience a factory correct and very rare early Range Rover P38.
Two sets of keys with working remotes on Roy Stratton leather key fobs.
