We first brought this a few years ago as we really like the look of the Series II, of which we had a couple when brand new
Great family cars, and as we had a large family they were enjoyed by all of us
Hence, when any Pre-Prodcution or Press Launch cars become available if in immaculate condition, of course, we do try to grab hold of them, and we managed to buy this very early Press Launch example about 4 years ago now
First registered in August '98 when the Press launch was in September and the Public launch in the UK wasn't until the end of November and for the rest of the World it was held back until 1999
This is one of the VOA cars used specifically for the re-run of the Hannibal trip across the Alpes 2000 years ago
The trip was undertaken to highlight the brilliant off road capabilities of these updated series 2 Discoveries
Much positive press was generated as well as the opportunity to advertise the expedition under the Best 4x4xFar banner
Our VOA came to us through a well known CVC expert (the prototype registration number for the P38 Range Rover's) who had owned the Discovery previously for over a year or so
As mentioned above, when we were offered the chance to buy her we snapped it up and were staggered at how good the car was / still is
It is the top of the range ES version (twin electric sunroofs, electric seats, leather trim, 7 seats, air conditioning, alloy wheels, Harmon Kardon stereo upgrade etc etc) and runs the lovely 4.0 litre petrol V8. A really smooth and powerful engine, which makes the car so refined - exactly the same specification as we always used to order when new
We were very surprised when one of our sons decided he wanted to change his MB BGT and upgrade to the Discovery - again bringing back memories of family journey's through France as a youngster
Whilst in his care, we have serviced her each year and re-applied under seal to keep her underside as good as the top half
The mileage of 83.000 (complete service book pack and invoices validate all her history since new) belies her condition - if she was 36.000 you've believe it
The interior is in mint condition, as is the exterior - really, really mint and not to be confused with just a good example
There is the original instruction manual, a period brochure and a laminated print out of the Hannibal Trip too
We sold a similar Press Launch vehicle again towards the end of last year and we are very happy to offer another opportunity so soon afterwards
