Lookin’ ace: the Range Rover P38 in Wimbledon Green

To celebrate the 30th birthday of the original Range Rover, and to flog some extra cars, in 2000 Land Rover introduced the limited edition 30th Anniversary Range Rover. With its Autobiography-colour Wimbledon Green and a bespoke interior it distinguished itself from lesser Range Rovers. Although it was very well specced, there was one option: a built-in satellite navigation system.

The 30th Anniversary Range Rover was first shown on the Geneva Motor Show in March 2000. The car on display was based on a LHD 2000MY Range Rover 4.6HSE. Images of the first RHD 30th Anniversary (see first image) emerged in May 2000. Actual customer cars were based on the 2001MY Range Rover Vogue.

The Wimbledon Green Range Rover was offered in different markets in Europe, Asia and in the US. Price for the first 50 cars made was 57.500 GBP in the UK. Cars from the second batch of 50 featured a dvd-player, picnic tables and tv screens in the front seats for passenger comfort and had a RRP of 63.500 GBP.
