• Just 128,580Km from new • 3.9 V8 with automatic transmission
• Alpine White paintwork • Tan leather interior
• Very original
Here we have the car that spawned the whole idea of a luxury off-roader, the Range Rover Classic. Maintaining its position as the undisputed king of luxury SUVs since the early 70s, the Range Rover has a loyal and passionate fanbase.
This example is a late model Range Rover Classic in 3.9 SE specification. So it comes with plenty of toys, the desirable 3.9 V8 drivetrain and a luxuriously appointed, leather-trimmed interior.
Presented in excellent, original condition this Range Rover Classic would be a highlight in any collection. Capable, dependable and neatly styled, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a low-mileage example of this appreciating classic luxury off-roader.
The History and Paperwork
Built in 1992
Supplied to Italian main dealer
Italian registration document included
• Tan leather interior • Wood veneer trim • Cruise control • Electric windows and mirrors • Factory-fitted electric sunroof • Pioneer radio/cassette player • Electric, heated memory seats
The cabin of the Range Rover Classic has always been a great place to be, both for the driver and any passengers. Plenty of room, great material quality and a large glasshouse really do provide a light, airy and inviting space.
Here the seats are finished in tan leather, with matching carpets and door cards. Both the front and rear seats feature retractable armrests, so everyone gets to ride in style. Everything is in very good condition, with no evidence of significant wear, damage or tears. Obviously, there is some evidence of light wear, but you can clearly see that this is a very low mileage car from the fine condition of the seats. Wood veneer trim is liberally sprinkled about the cabin and presents in very good condition, with no evidence we could see of cracking, flaking or UV damage.
The only flaw we could see in the interior was that the fuse box cover in the dash is missing, but that should be a relatively simple item to replace. Overall, the interior of this SUV is in very good condition for a 30 year old vehicle.
• Finished in Alpine White • Colour-coded classic 3-spoke alloys • Rear light cages
The lines of a Range Rover Classic are beautifully utilitarian and the shape is truly iconic. With those original three-spoke alloys colour-coded to match the bodywork, there's a delicious retro feel to the car. Alpine White really does suit the car, and is an unusual colour to see a Range Rover of this vintage in.
The paint itself appears to be in very good condition, the panels are straight and undamaged and the external trim, badges and lights are present and correct. On the passenger side the front mudflap needs to be reaffixed, but this is a minor job. As far as we could see, there is no evidence of bodywork corrosion in any of the usual places (wheelarches, rear split-hatch, quarter panels).
• 3.9-litre V8
• Automatic transmission
• Permanent 4WD • High/Low range transfer box
Built on a Land Rover 4x4 platform, this Range Rover may be a luxury car, but it's also extremely capable off-road. With the legendary Land Rover 4WD system and a selectable low range box, should you find yourself going a little off-piste in your Range Rover, you really don't need to worry. This example is also fitted with the electronically injected 3.9-litre V8, so you get a smooth and powerful ride on tarmac, and lashings of torque off-road. It is also fitted with a 4-speed ZF automatic gearbox, a transmission known for its reliability and smooth action.
Despite being a large vehicle, the fact that it is fitted with disc brakes all round, coil-spring suspension, power steering and anti-roll bars make the Range Rover Classic simple to drive.
What else offers this blend of capable, robust mechanicals, all-road performance and effortless luxury? Nothing. And that's why the Range Rover Classic is still very much a sought-after and desirable vehicle. With a thriving community and parts readily available, they make a great usable, everyday classic.
This particular example is presented in exceptionally good condition with minimal miles on the clock. Finished in a great specification and clearly having been carefully maintained over its 30 years, this Range Rover should be good for many more years of stylish motoring. So is the Range Rover the best luxury SUV in the world? Yes, it probably is. And this is one of the nicest examples you'll find.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £10,000
£10,000 to £50,000
£50,000 to £100,000
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours. You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
