Land Rover is excited to announce the next vehicle in the Classic Land Rover ‘Reborn’ series that will be fully restored to its original condition, the Range Rover.
The Range Rover Reborn program is offering Land Rover and car enthusiasts an opportunity to buy an original vintage Range Rover. The Range Rover Reborn program was created due to the largely successful start of the Land Rover Series 1 Reborn program last year.
The team at Land Rover Classic has put together research from years of engineering and design to make sure they are properly restoring the first Range Rover Reborn.
The first Range Rover that will be restored will be a 1978 Classic Range Rover in the color Bahama Gold. It will feature a 3528cc V8 Petrol Carburetor Zenith-Stromberg 175CD type engine with a max power of 132bhp at 5000rpm, a max torque of 186lb-ft at 2500rpm, and 4-speed manual transmission (lockable central differential).
“Range Rover Reborn is another showcase of our dedicated in-house engineering expertise,” Tim Hannig, Director, Jaguar Land Rover Classic, says. “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 color ways to interior trim and accessories.”
The Range Rover Reborn vehicle will be completely restored according to the original 1970s factory specifications and will use Land Rover Classic parts to keep the vehicle authentic.
Car enthusiasts with a sweet spot for Land Rover Classic vehicles will have a change to purchase a Range Rover Reborn. The price will start at around $170,000.
