Next week in Paris at Salon Retromobile, one of Europe’s largest classic car trade shows, Land Rover Classic will unveil the next model in its “Reborn” series of factory-reconstructed vintage models, a 1978 Range Rover.
The three-door Range Rover has been carefully restored by Land Rover Classic, the company’s own restoration parts and service division, to its original specification. The color is ’70s-spectacular Bahama Gold and uses a carbureted 3.5-liter V8 matched to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
Land Rover will offer the in-house restoration service to owners of other vintage Range Rover and will help guide them on choosing a suitable candidate worthy of the £135,000 ($169,000+ at today’s exchange rate) undertaking.
Tim Hannig, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic states, “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.”
Salon Retromobile runs from February 8-12 in Paris.
