rare 1995 Discovery 3.9i V8 ES manual 7 seat with LPG For Sale


motodrome are pleased to offer this 1995/ M reg Discovery 3. 9i V8 ES Manual, 7 seater, finished in Blue with full grey leather trim.

Fitted with an underfloor LPG system which works as it should and keeps the fuel bills manageable.

For the 1995 model year, Land Rover facelifted the Discovery with various trim changes, and new engines and gearboxes for both petrol and diesel models. They also bought out a new ‘flagship’ model, the ES.

ES models were fitted with ABS brakes, Air Conditioning (working and cold on this one), full leather trim, pewter alloys (shod on this one with a matching set of 4 Pirelli Scorpion tyres), electric twin sunroofs, electric seats, windows etc, plus a few other extras like roof rails.

When we were offered this one by a long-standing client and serious Land Rover enthusiast, what really piqued my interest, apart from the condition, was the ‘VC’ number plate, as this usually signifies a factory car. A glance at the original service book confirms the original registered keeper as Land Rover, Lode Lane, Solihull.

My interest increased when I found it’s specification was a little different to other ES models, in that it isn’t fitted with electric seats or electric sunroofs. Neither are any great loss as the electrics usually play up or fail on the seats and roof. It’s possible it was an early production evaluation example, or possibly one originally intended for a RHD market outside of the UK, that the factory decided to retain.

It's also fitted with full-length side steps, adjustable towpack, and inside it has the original stereo system, and a dog guard in place of the luggage blind.

Also fitted with Terrafirma springs and shock absorbers all round.

Odometer reading 109000 miles supported by the original service book with details of 17 services, and a selection of bills.

It switches seamlessly from petrol to LPG once it’s warmed up, drives really well, and sounds superb. You can’t beat a V8 in my opinion.

Comes with MOT to the very end of February 2023 and 6 months warranty on sale

It’s obviously been very well looked after by previous owners, and it’s a pretty rare beast these days, needing a new owner that will keep it in the manner to which it’s accustomed!

On our own website, you’ll find our usual 2 videos, which form part of the description.
