2001 Range Rover 4.0 HSE (P38)

One of the very last, registered in October 2001, showing just 87,300 miles; attractive spec and colour scheme

Supplied new by Farnell Land Rover of Leeds on 12th October 2001 and finished in desirable Alvaston Red metallic, it sits on twin spoke 18inch Hurricane alloy wheels. This very late model P38 Range Rover comes to us in high spec HSE guise featuring the later 'Thor' version of the Rover 4.0 V8 mated to four-speed automatic transmission with H-gate for off-road gear options.

Dating from October 2001, on a '51-plate' it must surely be one of the last P38's registered before replacement by the L322 version and looks to be attractive both inside and out having covered just 87,300 miles. Starting promptly and running as it should whilst we moved it around for these shots, you're reminded what a big comfortable vehicle they are, ensconced in cream leather arm chairs with individual arm rests, walnut trim, heated electric seats, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel, OBC, rear ventillation, electric mirrors, glass sunroof and powerful original spec Harman Kardon sound system with built in subwoofer.

Riding on adjustable air-suspension which works as it should, going up and down in but a few moments, it looks as it should with a discreet V8 burble and useful tow hitch at the rear with double plugs, ideal for towing with so much V8 grunt available.

Its history file includes a V5C, 2 keys, owner's pack and service book showing 8 entries inc. PDI, current MOT running until October 2022 with no advisories recorded, 14 old MOTs dating back to 2005 and a stack of invoices. More recently, new rear pads, new exhaust centre box, new o/s and n/s rear brake pipes were added in October 2018 at a cost of £598 along with new HT leads and spark plugs in April 2020, a new Bosch air mass sensor in August 2020 at £219, pre-mot checks, new front drop links and a door lock repair in September 2020 costing £245. It was poly-bush kit fitted to the front suspension arms and new steering column shaft in August 2017 costing £396 plus new air conditioning condenser and pipes in May 2017. In addition to these invoices there are further service and parts bills dating back to 2012 plus a certificate showing the Range Rover was treated to an extended warranty from new lasting until 2004.

One of the usual foibles of this model is a sagging headlining, fortunately this has recently been done with a brand new cream headlining fitted with some of the recent work undertaken documented both in print in classic car media and on YouTube.

Late model P38's have really begun to rise in value quite significantly. After a few years of looking a little 'old hat',they have really found their feet again and good sub-100k examples are being snapped up and hidden away for investment or used and enjoyed daily as they should be without all the complication and depreciation of a more modern Range Rover.
