  • High specification Vogue model

  • All-wheel drive
  • Recently recommissioned

The Appeal

If you want to go anywhere – including off road and into the rough stuff – but do so in effortless comfort and then arrive in elegant style, then you buy a Range Rover. It’s as simple as that. The “Rangie” as it’s affectionately known, has long been the answer to the ‘one car that does it all’ conundrum.

And the P38, overlooked for many years, is now being recognised as something of a modern classic. Suave, understated style, superb powertrains, great all-round ability and well specified cabins make them a very usable and practical daily driver.

The example you see here has been recently recommissioned. Mechanically in fine fettle, it’s now ready for a new owner to add some finishing touches cosmetically. We think it would be a great option for anyone looking for a quick project this summer.

The History and Paperwork

  • First registered in 2001
  • Four owners from new
  • Current owner since March 2021
  • The vendor rescued the car after it had been stood in a field for five years – and apparently it started first time
  • The car was recommissioned in 2021 and the vendor tells us they have covered only about 1,000 miles since
  • 122,662 miles on the clock
  • Only being sold as the owner now has no room to keep it

    • New front and rear brake discs and pads
    • Refreshed air suspension all round

The Gallery

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.
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.


C&C 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 £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

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.

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.
