Australian Market History Overview:

The Range Rover commenced production in 1970 in the UK and first sales in Australia date from around 1972.  This vehicle appealed to folk who wanted an all terrain vehicle that offered comfort and performance.  Originally vehicles were configured with a two door body and 3.5 litre V8 engine.  As manufacturing expanded a 4 door version became available and various levels of trim and mechanical specification could be had.  This first generation of Range Rover, which has retrospectively been dubbed the ‘Classic’, was replaced in 1994 a new second-generation design code named ‘P38A’.  This model was available in both 4.0 and 4.6 litre V8 Rover engines until 2002 when this model ceased production.
