2002 second-generation P38A Range Rover last off line
Chassis number: SALPM16412A467128
Registration number: BT51 ETY
Engine type: 4.6 V8 Petrol
Gearbox type: 4 Speed Automatic
This Range Rover is the last of the second-generation P38A models and was built in 2002. It was driven off the production line by John Hall with Spen King in the passenger seat.
The specification is for a US vehicle although it is unclear why the company chose to make the last off the line to US spec! Land Rover presented the car to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust at Gaydon but in 2002 BMIHT decided to sell off vehicles that it considered surplus to its requirements. This car eventually ended up in Marbella, Spain and Philip had the pleasure of flying there to conclude our acquisition of it in 2013. It has covered only 20,000 miles and is in excellent condition.
Once back in the UK we serviced it and changed the US spec lighting and applied to the DVLA for the restoration of its original factory registration number.
The Collection now owns the oldest P38A known to have survived as well as the last off the line.
