Range Rover P38 (95-02)
The mid 1990’s saw the transition from the Range Rover Classic to the second generation which was produced between 1995 to 2002. Otherwise known as the Range Rover P38, this successor maintained the distinctive outline of the marque and kept the trademark split tailgate. So how does the Range Rover 1995-2002 shape up?

The changes in styling can be seen from the front with the rectangular headlights being the most obvious alteration. Under the bonnet this Range Rover was powered by 4.0L and 4.6L Rover V8 petrol engines with the BMW 2.5L six cylinder turbo engine for diesel. Chassis strength was improved, and the manual gear box was available for the last time in this version of the Range Rover. Admittedly, these older Range Rovers are renowned for shortcomings in handling, but this where a notable difference is. This Range Rover takes sharp corners better than the Range Rover Classic on roads. This is thanks to the P38’s anti-roll bars, air springs, and strengthened chassis. The electronic air suspension adjusts height automatically depending upon speed or can be altered to accommodate different terrain settings. By this time the Range Rover had firmly established itself in the luxury car market, providing a status symbol to match its elevated driving position and unrivalled view of the road and surroundings.
