It lives! Range Rover Reborn resurrects 1970s original
Range Rover Reborn has been created by Land Rover Classic, with 10 examples of the original 1970s three-door car to be built
An initial batch of ten examples of the original Range Rover will be comprehensively restored, offering prospective customers the chance to buy a version of the original Range Rover brand new and straight from Land Rover.
Finished in Bahama Gold with a tan cloth and leather interior, a 3.5-litre carburettor fed V8 sits under the bonnet, producing 132bhp and 251Nm of torque – the same figures as the original Rover V8 engined car. All four wheels are driven through a four-speed manual gearbox and a lockable central differential.
Every Range Rover Reborn completed by Land Rover Classic will begin in the hands of an experienced restoration team who’ll work with customers to find the best possible base vehicles for the restoration process. Customers will be advised on collectability, unique characteristics of their chosen base Range Rovers and preferable chassis numbers.
The complete restoration is undertaken to original 1970’s factory specification using Land Rover Classic parts, and prices for ‘Reborn’ Range Rovers will start from £135,000.
According to Tim Hannig, Director at Land Rover Classic, the Range Rover Reborn programme 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.”
