Land Rover has revealed the first of 10 Range Rover Reborn models has been revealed. The first Range Rover Reborn, a 1978 two-door Range Rover, will be shown off at the Salon Rétromobile 2017 in Paris next week.
The immaculately restored Bahama Gold 1978 Range Rover has been restored by Land Rover Classic and will be available for customers to purchase for £135,000 (Rs 1.15 crore).
The two-door Range Rover is the first of 10 models that Land Rover Classic will restore as part of the Range Rover Reborn program, but the total number of restored Range Rovers could go up depending on the demand.
The two-door Range Rover has been completely restored to original 1970's factory specification using Land Rover Classic parts and period production techniques.
The Range Rover Reborn is powered by a 3.5-litre carburettor fed V8 engine produces 132bhp and 251Nm of torque, the exact same figures that the Rover V8 produced in 1978 when the car was new. The V8 sends its power to all four wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox with a lockable central differential.
The Range Rover Reborn will be showcased alongside two cars restored by Jaguar Classic including the first restored E-Type Fixed Head Coupé and the first one of nine restored XKSS models.
