1997 Range Rover 4.0 SE (P38)

On offer from a deceased estate and in storage since 2014; 4.0 V8 in SE spec with automatic transmission showing 97,840 miles

Dating from September 1997 this P38 series Range Rover comes to us from a deceased estate and has been in storage since 2014.

The vehicle is in 4.0 SE spec powered by the GEMS Lucas 4.0 Rover V8 developing 190bhp and 320Nm of torque driving all four wheels via ZF’s 4HP22 4-speed automatic transmission with low ratio option for off road use.

Finished in desirable black with factory optional light guards and alloy wheels off the later L320 series Range Rover Sport the car looks and sits well bar some fade evident to the bonnet.

Inside, we find contrasting cream leather interior piped black and retro-fit black headlining. In addition, we see walnut trim, electric windows, mirrors, trip computer, cruise control and EAS Air suspension. At the time of photographing for the sale, the idle was rather high and we were unable to open the boot.

The history file includes the owner’s pack with manuals and service book revealing 10 stamps, the last in August 2006 at 62,015 miles by Autotec of Yardley although all previous 9 stamps were by Land Rover main agents. In addition, we find the V5C showing 6 former keepers to the current (now deceased) of 8 years and current MOT valid until March 2022 with 6 advisories recorded worth considering but not out of the way for a 24 year old Range Rover. The MOT history shows the vehicle to have been off the road between 2013/4 and March of this year, the mileage in 2013 being 94,568 miles to the current indicated of 97,840.

A nice truck with potential to be very nice with some work, and given the upwards trend in values of the P38 it could be worth a look.
