The Appeal

 
The Range Rover ‘P38a’ is as much of a status symbol today as it was when it was it was new – opulent, well-equipped and exceptionally grand, it’s a car that has earned a huge enthusiast following in the 27 years since it was launched and is a rapidly appreciating modern classic.

With prices of Range Rover Classics going stratospheric, the P38’s moment in the sun is nigh – they’re already creeping up and are only going one way. It’s not surprising either, because as well as being iconic, they’re really quite lovely to drive and have a sense of grandeur about them that few other cars of the era can match.

This one’s a gorgeous example. A 2001 Model Year final facelift, it’s a high-spec Vogue with the flagship 4.6-litre V8, finished in rare and appealing Alveston Red, which must be one of the smartest colours offered on the model. It’s a genuine sub-100,000 miles car with a good history, making it the ideal luxurious modern classic as well as a sensible future investment.

Overall it’s a lovely example of a post-facelift P38 in a gorgeous colour scheme, with a gorgeous interior and fabulous bodywork – there’s no evidence of it ever having needed welding and the door shuts and sills are superb.
 
With P38s being really in vogue at the moment m- if you’ll excuse the pun - and the best examples getting fewer and further between, this one represents a terrific opportunity for the enthusiast and investor – a grand and stylish old truck in impressive original condition.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

Car & Classic's secure payment system protects buyers and sellers. At the end of the auction, the winning bidder transfers payment into a third-party escrow account. Once the transfer of the vehicle is complete, both parties confirm they are happy with the sale and the money is released to the seller. More about buying with us
Safe, secure payment process

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.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • 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.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

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.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
