Some moment ago, Land Rover Classic announced a “Reborn” program, which consists of definitive, factory-restored Land Rovers offered for sale and backed with a works warranty. It’s the closest you get to buying a new 60-year-old Land Rover Series 1, at quotation that’s probably more than a perfectly-preserved example. Now the company is following up with the verbatim at the same time treatment for the Range Rover.

As with the Series 1 effort, the latest restoration programme is a limited run. Land Rover will only refurbish 10 examples of the authentic Range Rover. The first in this line is a three-door 1978 mock-up of the original luxury SUV, it will be show in public at the Rétromobile classic car guide. The Bahama Gold paint color especially suits the Charles “Spen” Monarch design, but it is likely other period correct-colors will be made close by. The proto-SUV is powered by the Buick-derived 3.5 liter V8 producing 132 horsepower with its Bring to bear on-Stromberg carburetors.

As with the earlier 25 Reborn Series 1 vehicles, the Reborn Orbit Rovers will also be carefully selected from restorable candidates and made to correctly coincide to their original factory specifications, down to whatever “unique characteristics” the vehicles were at ordered with. Again, the pricing is about as steep as the inclines the Range Rovers are skilled to climb; the restored vehicles will start at £135,000 GBP or 170,000 USD.

At the Parisian Salon Rétromobile lay bare, held from February 8th to 12th, Jaguar Land Rover will also adjacent a factory-restored E-Type Fixed Head Coupe and a continuation series Jaguar XKSS.
