The Range Rover first rolled onto the scene in 1970. This classic vehicle was an early version of the premium SUVs that are so popular today. Range Rovers allowed regular folks the opportunity to explore the world. The charm of these classic vehicles cannot be denied. That is why Land Rover decided to restore some of their most iconic Series I collectable Range Rovers. Ten lucky customers will have the chance to buy one of these classic Range Rovers.
The British automaker’s Special Vehicles Operations Division sourced ten donor Range Rovers from all over the world to be restored. Drawing on decades of design and engineering expertise, Land Rover will preserve the authenticity of all of the Range Rovers that it re-creates. The automaker has said that they plan to use only original classic parts for all of their restored Range Rovers. Each Range Rover will be restored from the ground-up. The result is a vintage Range Rover in pristine condition—one that you would expect if you walked into a 1970s dealer. Customers can choose the trim and colour that they want.
The first Range Rover to receive the Reborn treatment was a Classic 1978 two-door. Under the hood is a V8 with 132 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a 4-speed transmission. This Range Rover was finished with a nice Bahamas Gold paint with Caramel interior.
The Range Rover Classic Reborn project shows Land Rover’s commitment to preserving the heritage of this iconic automobile. It also allows customers to own a highly-collectible vintage icon.
