The word ‘unique’ is often overused in the marketing for collectable motor cars. However, in this instance it encompasses the offering perfectly. The Range Rover offered for sale here is no ordinary P38 Range Rover; it is a one-off concept car. In 1997, and with increased demand from their Autobiography programme, Land Rover Special Vehicles turned P880 KAC (already an Autobiography in it’s own right) into a Mobile Office Concept. With a development budget of £450,000, P880 was used as a pilot/test bed vehicle to showcase different options for future Autobiography customers. Land Rover approached Noel Edmond’s company Unique Group to help supply some of this technology, with the intention to market these additional options to new Autobiography owners across Land Rover dealerships. As a result, P880 was also used for promotion and demonstration purposes by Land Rover, as well as Sony and Cellnet. After P880 had served its PR purposes, and in order to save the car from being disassembled, Noel Edmonds bought P880. A copy of his V5 is part of the extensive history file that encompasses masses of promotional material, invoices for work completed and ownership detail. We haven't photographed a tenth of what comes with the car! It has 4 previous owners from new, so 3 in addition to Land Rover and Mr Edmonds. It comes complete with all the office equipment as fitted to the vehicle in 1997 encompassing laptop, 2 phones, printer/fax etc, as well as the VHS player and twin rear screens, satellite navigation, and all the other usual refinements as fitted to the top spec P38s. Being based on an Autobiography, the leather and wood trim in P880 is premium grade and quite different to the standard interior available on the 4.6 HSE of the time. The paint too, is a unique colour to this car. We acquired P880 from the latest owner recently, and being in such good order generally, we only needed to undertake a small amount of work to prepare the car for sale. This preparatory work included a full service in addition to the 17 stamps in the service book, fitting four brand new Pirelli Scorpion tyres and fitting a new headlining as the original was sagging. We also repaired the defective cruise control, replaced some blend motors and 'O' rings in the dashboard, and fixed the air conditioning which had a leaking condenser. All pretty routine stuff for a P38! P880 is surely worthy of any car collection, and is available now and supplied with 12 months fresh MOT for the new owner.
