Range Rover Reborn program debuts

A 1978 three-door Range Rover Classic has been successfully restored back to its original factory specifications by Land Rover Classic’s Reborn programme.

To maintain and protect authenticity, Land Rover’s experienced restoration team utilise Land Rover Classic Parts.

The Bahama Gold example is powered by a 3528cc 3.5-litre carburettor V8 petrol engine. The donk generates 132bhp (98kW) at 5000rpm and 251Nm at 2500Nm and is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. A lockable central diff helps in the rough stuff.

This first restored example marks the beginning of the Reborn programme, which will comprehensively restore an initial 10 examples.

Range Rover Reborn sideThe Range Rover Reborn programme aims to provide customers with the opportunity to purchase original and vintage Range Rovers, direct from Land Rover Classic in the UK.

“Range Rover Reborn is another showcase of our dedicated in-house engineering expertise,” Tim Hannig, director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic said. “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.”

Prices for the completely restored vehicles will start from £135,000 (AU$220,000 est.).

The restored 1978 Range Rover Classic will debut at Salon Retromobile, a car exhibition held in Paris from February 8-12.
