Classics – 1978 Range Rover is the first Reborn model from the Land Rover Classic unit image

This is the very first Range Rover Reborn model to be featured by the land Rover Classic program, a unit that was in initially a Bahama Gold-coloured 1978 two-door version.

The model is a classic car collector’s every dream because it got treated to the exact original specifications via Land Rover Classic parts and period production techniques. Under the hood sits a 3.5-litre V8 petrol engine, treated to Zenith Stromberg carburetors for a power of 132bhp at 5000rpm and 186lb ft of torque at 2500rpm. All wheel drive is enabled via a four-speed manual transmission with a lockable central differential – and ahs all the exact same specifications as it exited the factory almost four decades ago.

This is just the first in a ten production run from the land Rover division of specialists, each created specifically for the buyers that can afford the huge price of £135,000, which is almost £35,000 more than a new V8-engine Range Rover. Sister brand Jaguar Classic has also so far created one of the nine XKSS models it plans to restore and the first restored E-Type Fixed Head Coupé.
