As part of the Land Rover Reborn series, the Range Rover Reborn had its first public appearance at the Salon Rétromobile 2017 in Paris.
Built with authentic parts and to the specification of the original Range Rover, the first run of ten restored examples look, perform and feel exactly the same as the original model from 1978. The three-door model is decked out in Bahama Gold paint, and with the 3.6-litre V8 petrol under the bonnet producing 132bhp and 186 lb/ft of torque paired with the four-speed manual transmission – just like the original.
Every model built will undergo a full restoration up to 1970’s specification to preserve the model’s authenticity. The Range Rover Reborn will cost £135,000 from base price, with customer preference altering the price. Tim Hannig, director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, said:
“Range Rover Reborn is another showcase of our dedicated in-house engineering expertise. It underscores our commitment to nurturing the rich heritage of Land Rover, and is a rare opportunity for customers to own a valuable and genuinely collectible automotive icon. It is a wonderful way to preserve the much sought after three-door original Range Rover from the 1970s, from period-correct colour ways to interior trim and accessories.”
The Range Rover was originally designed as a two-door model before the four-door version was introduced in 1981.
Following the variation’s discontinuance following the first generation, the two-door model has been a nostalgic look that many Range Rover fans adore. So for many admirers of the original Range Rover, this is an ideal opportunity to get their hands on one.
