The most historically significant second-generation Range Rover in private ownership: original, pre-launch, pre-production press vehicle – ex-Charles Spencer King vehicle

The only L-reg 38a Range Rover still on its original prestige Land Rover ‘RGL’ registration - RGL standing for ‘Rover Group Limited’.

L10RGL is a 4.6 V8 HSE built in the Spring of 1994 as part of the second phase of ‘Methods Build’ preproduction development. Allocated to the LR press fleet and registered on July 4th 1994 to become one of a pre-launch VIP evaluation fleet of ten vehicles registered L2RGL – L10RGL (along with LR1). Used extensively for VIP pre-launch press work at the Athol Estate in Scotland and then featured in a range of international motoring magazine articles published to coincide with the main launch events during August and September 1994.

Most significantly, L10RGL was lent to Charles Spencer King in July 1994 who drove her for a ‘pilgrimage trip’ from Solihull to the home of his uncle, Maurice Wilks, in Anglesey. The road trip was documented and photographed by Car magazine and a wealth of high quality professional images of Spen King with L10RGL are available.

L10RGL was retired from the company in 1996 and sold through a main dealer in Droitwich, near Solihull. L10 changed ownership in 1999 to a retired businessman who owned a large manor house in Droitwich. L10 was kept in pristine condition and garaged alongside his collection of classic sports cars. The elderly owner died in 2010 and the current owner, Dr Julian Lamb, purchased her directly from the estate in 2011.

Since 2011 L10RGL has been used as a much-cherished classic car and featured in numerous magazines over the last ten years. She has been on display at major classic car shows in the UK and also returned to JLR to be driven by Roger Crathorne on the Land Rover test track. In recent years, she been driven by George Thomson, who was largely responsible for the visual design of the 38a Range Rover and several other high-profile people in the Land Rover world.

In preparation for the 2020 50th anniversary Range Rover celebrations, L10 received comprehensive mechanical and electrical refurbishment in the autumn of 2019 at a well-known Land Rover specialist (costing over £3000). She was fully prepared/detailed during February 2020 prior to her first display event of 2020 at the National Exhibition Centre. However, with all shows being cancelled due to C-19, L10 was put back into storage until now.

She is in fabulous original condition and retains a wealth of printed and photographic documentation including her original handbooks. She has been in continuous use and/or dry storage for her 26 years and repaired/ maintained to a high standard as required.

This Land Rover is unique and would complement the collection of the most discerning Land Rover enthusiast.

She will be issued with a new 12 months MOT certificate prior to sale.
