Diesel power came relatively late into the run of the first generation Range Rover, with the introduction of the Turbo D model in 1986, fitted with the Italian VM engine. This was superseded by Land Rover's own 200Tdi 2.5 litre diesel in 1992 and again in 1994 by the updated and more refined 300Tdi.
The Range Rover has long been a favourite of the royal household. It has also been a popular choice for the personal cars of senior members of the royal family. This particular car is one of the last of the 'Classic' Range Rovers and was owned by His Majesty King Charles III and used as his personal transport.
