1995 Range Rover Classic Vogue LSE 4.2 Litre Last of the line, 'Soft Dash' model

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: M502 KAC Chassis No: SALLHBM33MA655493 MOT: April 2025 Formerly part of a 28-strong, private Range Rover collection Reputedly 1 of just 33 'soft dash' models to be finished in Niagara Dark Grey Metallic The subject of much restoration work including new inner and outer sills plus attention to the inner wings, headlamp panel and tailgate etc Air-con, PAS, automatic transmission, heated front seats and sunroof etc Factory-fitted Brooklands bodykit, Cyclone alloy wheels, working air suspension Only built from March 1994 – February 1996, the Classic represented the ultimate evolution of the original Range Rover. Launched in 1970, Land Rover’s pioneering SUV had been the first vehicle of its kind to feature permanent four-wheel drive, ABS brakes, electronic traction control or air suspension. The initial series Rangie was also the only one to be displayed in the Musee du Louvre as an exemplar of industrial design or to have twice won the Dakar Rally. Long established as a global icon and ‘shorthand’ for British luxury, it is little wonder Land Rover hedged its bets by overlapping Classic production with that of its second generation (P38A) successor. Boasting a full suite of ‘mod cons’ including power steering, air-conditioning, heated front seats, automatic transmission and leather upholstery, the Classic was characterised by its ‘Soft Dash’ (derived from that of the contemporary Discovery). The flagship LSE variant boasted a longer 108-inch wheelbase for extra rear legroom and a potent 4.2 litre V8 engine developing some 200bhp/251lbft. A measure of the model’s collectability, the softdashregister.net lists just 375 examples. Finished in the late model colour of Niagara Grey Metallic with Grey leather upholstery, ‘M502 KAC’ also sports a desirable Brooklands bodykit which is perhaps unsurprising given that it was first registered to Land Rover UK Ltd on 8th June 1995. Looked after by Challenger 4x4 of Surrey for much of the 2000s / 2010s, the Classic joined Trevor Leggett’s 28-strong Range Rover collection during 2017. France’s most successful, high-end estate agent, Mr Leggett has an in-house team to service and improve his cars. The fruits of their labour are easy to see with the condition of ‘M502 KAC’ belying the 131,700 miles shown to its odometer. As well as replacement inner / outer sills, the Rangie has had attention paid to its inner wings, headlamp panel, tailgate and even underbonnet sound deadener. Starting readily and running well during a recent test drive, this rare and desirable ‘soft dash’ is offered for sale with original book pack, V5C and fresh MOT certificate.
