LAND ROVER RESTORE 25 SERIES IS
LAND ROVER has announced plans to bring 25 original Series Is back to their former glory.
The project, titled Reborn, will see the marque fully restore 25 of the iconic cars at its new Classic Workshop at Solihull in the West Midlands.
The Reborn programme was announced at the 2016 Techno Classica show in Essen, with JLR confirming that it has used its international network to secure 25 genuinely authentic 1948 Series I vehicles from around the world, ready for restoration.
Each of the cars will undergo a full rebuild, using genuine Land Rover Classic parts to ensure the vehicles adhere to 1948 specifications exactly. The lucky owners of the new cars will be able to choose from five period finishes, including Light Green, Bronze Green, RAF Blue, Dove Grey and Poppy Red.
Tim Hannig, Director, Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said: “The launch of the Reborn initiative represents a fantastic opportunity for customers to own a valuable and collectable automotive icon. Reborn showcases Land Rover Classic’s expertise in restoring and maintaining our loyal customers’ prized Land Rovers.
“It also demonstrates the business’ commitment to supporting customers with original and genuine parts for Land Rover models that have been out for production for longer than 10 years.”
Although prices have not been confirmed by Land Rover, it’s thought that each vehicle will command a whopping £60,000 asking price.
