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.
