P38 V8 Range Rover
Should you forget all the scare stories about the P38’s legendary unreliability and sky-high running costs? No; that would be silly. Should you buy one? Yes, but take care when choosing one. Find one like this example and you’ll have a great machine that will transport you in luxury, anywhere you choose to go – on- and off-road.
Many of the gremlins that often beset these Lode Lane limos stem from the circumstances in which they were conceived and built: cuttingedge technology on a shoestring budget is not an ideal combination. Follow this with years of indifferent servicing and maintenance, and you have a recipe for trouble.
Fortunately, many issues can be traced to poor earth connections or faulty sensors. Get these sorted out, and – like this fine example – everything works perfectly.
P38s were once the flagship of Land Rover’s range, and HSE models like this came with all the trimmings. Luxury still oozes from every pore in this fine leather interior.
