Only 10 copies will be “produced”
The first Range Rover is back. Ten copies will be selected to be fully restored and then put up for sale to collectors and enthusiasts from around the world for a, let’s say “nice” price. The 10 units will be restored to the original 1970’s model specifications (including the Bahama Gold paint) using parts of the brand’s classic division to maintain and protect its authenticity. The “Reborn” project consists of restoring classic Jaguar and Land Rover cars to the original specifications. The process is done by factory mechanics. After the restoration, the vehicles are offered for sale or returned to the owners’ collections. The most striking and mediatic project so far was the Jaguar XKSS D-Type: nine units were restored and sold for no less than 1.03 million pounds each. The engine chosen for the Range Rover Classic is the atmospheric 3.5 litre petrol V8, with 132cv and 251 Nm of binary, coupled to a four-speed manual gearbox. As for the price, this will be within reach of a few: £135,000 .
“The Range Rover Reborn is an unusual opportunity that allows the purchase of a locomotion icon of great value and with numerous possibilities for the collector,” explains Tim Hannig, Director of the Jaguar Land Rover Classic.
This is a great way to preserve the envied original four-door Range Rover from the 1970’s, as the colour, interior lining and accessories match exactly those used at the time,” added the official.
