1997 RANGE ROVER ‘MOBILE OFFICE’ CONCEPT
The Range Rover (LP) was the second-generation Range Rover model from Land Rover. It was launched on 28th September 1994, 24 years after the introduction of the first-generation Range Rover. It included an updated version of the Rover V8 engine, with the option of a 2.5-litre BMW six-cylinder turbo-diesel. The new model offered more equipment and premium trims, positioning the vehicle above the Land Rover Discovery to face the increased competition in the SUV marketplace.
The Range Rover offered here today is no ordinary LP or P38A; with increased demand from the Autobiography programme, LR-SVO turned P880-KAC into a Mobile Office Concept. P880 was used as a Pilot/Test vehicle to showcase different options for future Autobiography customers. LR-SVO approached Noel Edmond’s Unique Group to help supply some of this technology with the intention to market these additional options to new Autobiography owners across LR/RR dealerships. As a result P880 was also used for promotion and demonstration purposes by Sony, Cellnet and Land Rover themselves. After P880 had served its PR purposes and in order to save the car from being disassembled, Noel Edmonds bought P880 and a copy of his V5 is part of the extensive history file. P880 had a £450,000 development budget, which was a staggering amount at the time and makes this Range Rover one of the most unique and interesting we have ever come across.
