RANGE ROVER CLASSIC RETURNS
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.
