RANGE ROVER CLAS­SIC RE­TURNS

Classics Monthly - - Fuel -

Land Rover Clas­sic, the arm of Land Rover which spe­cialises in the restora­tion and preser­va­tion of his­toric ve­hi­cles from the mar­que’s past, un­veiled its new­est ini­tia­tive, Range Rover Re­born, at last week­end’s Sa­lon Rétro­mo­bile in Paris, of which a full re­port will fol­low in next week’s is­sue.

The brand showed off the first ex­am­ple of the run; a ful­lyre­stored Range Rover Clas­sic on its stand at the show in the French cap­i­tal as an ex­am­ple of what pay­ing cus­tomers can ex­pect.

As you may imag­ine, the Range Rover Re­born ini­tia­tive is set to of­fer cus­tomers a chance to own a Range Rover Clas­sic that has been re­stored to brand new con­di­tion us­ing Land Rover Clas­sic parts by Land Rover’s own restora­tion team. As far as prove­nance goes, the pro­gramme is likely to be un­par­al­leled; it’s per­haps no sur­prise then that buy­ers will cer­tainly be pay­ing for the priv­i­lege, with prices start­ing at £135,000 for a pro­fes­sion­ally sourced and re­stored Clas­sic.

Land Rover Clas­sic’s first Range Rover Re­born is a 1978 model, re­splen­dent in Ba­hama Gold and pow­ered by a fully re­built 3528cc Rover V8.

Re­turned to com­pletely orig­i­nal spec­i­fi­ca­tion and packed full of brand new, gen­uine parts, the car is tes­ta­ment to the sheer at­ten­tion to de­tail and work­man­ship that the di­vi­sion's skilled en­gi­neers and ex­perts have ded­i­cated to its restora­tion.
