The Appeal

 
If the ‘P38a’ generation of Range Rover was proof that the model was more of a luxury car than an off-roader, then the L322 generation that came next took that to an even higher level.
 
From the design stage it was Land Rover’s vision that the L322 would be a luxury car first and an off-roader second, albeit with the same legendary off-road ability expected of a Land Rover product.
 
It was a car with an awkward gestation. Conceived by BMW at the time it took over the Rover Group in 1994, the vehicle was developed to use BMW powertrains (namely the 4.4-litre V8 petrol and 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engines), but by the time the model was launched, Land Rover had passed into Ford’s ownership as part of BMW’s high-profile divorce from Rover Group.

As such, the most sophisticated luxury off-roader ever made was born through three separate companies, with BMW mechanical components, an all-new monocoque body and chassis developed by Rover Group and eventually brought to market by the newly formed Ford Premier Automotive Group, which consisted of Land Rover, Jaguar, Volvo and Aston Martin.
 
Confusing as its parentage was, the L322 was an immediate success, the Range Rover brand proving that the general car-buying public cared little about what was going on in the boardroom.
 
The car’s reception was tremendous when it debuted at the end of 2001. As both a luxury car and an off-roader, it was peerless - the only real negatives being directed at the rather substantial list price, but demand was such that Land Rover could get away with it. Today, 23 years since launch, the L322 is coming of age, with collectors taking a genuine interest in the first of the breed.

This example is from the first 12 months of production, so is a guaranteed future classic. Finished in gorgeous Giverny Green with Aspen leather (a fetching greenish grey), it’s in fine order throughout having been treated to a lifetime of care.

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.
