2000 Range Rover 2.5 DT (P38)

Later model P38 with 5-speed manual 'box; cream leather interior; only 80,176 miles and driven 150 miles to the sale

Supplied new by Sean Behan Ltd of Arklow, Ireland in December 2000 this later model P38 comes to us in 2.5 DT spec, featuring the robust 2.5-litre BMW straight-six turbo diesel mated to 5-speed manual transmission.  Finished in blue with retro-fitted cream leather interior piped blue with grey velour door cards and grey carpets (original interior was grey velour) and walnut trim. The car still rides on air suspension and has the usual sagging headlining common with the P38 (although this is readily fixable for about £400 with a kit online).

Showing just 80,176 miles covered in the hands of its 3-owners, its been with its last owner since January 2004 and appears to be in good order bar a couple of minor marks as pictured comensurate with its age, miles and type. Starting promptly as we moved it around for these shots, the air suspension appeared to work as directed, the vehicle sitting well on its original alloy wheels and unencumbered by the so often seen bulky sidesteps fitted to many in the period.

Within the history file we find the V5C, handbook and service book showing 2 stamps, the last by Hartwell Land Rover at 22,112 miles in October 2003. A selection of invoices shows some regular and recent maintenance including a repair to the towbar wiring in March 2019, a new inlet manifold gasket at 70,737 miles in January 2018 along with new battery, 6 glow plugs and new rear exhaust section in June 2017, air suspension pump and block replacement/repair in September 2015 costing £495 and others dating back to 2014. Furthermore, a previous owner has documented their expendture back to 2012 in a log which includes mention of a replacement computer/ECU in May 2012 at a cost of £1,105.  We also see an impressive 14 old MOTs along with the current ticket valid until August 2021 with no advisories recorded and was driven some 150 miles to the sale.

The P38 has seen something of a rennaisance in recent times and has become a popular modern classic choice with its robust usability and classless image, at home in the suburbs or in the fields and values have risen accordingly.
