|The limited edition Range Rover CSK is named after Charles Spencer King, the man who designed the original 2-door Range Rover over 20 years ago. The CSK was intended primarily to publicise the new anti-roll suspension and was promoted as a sportier Range Rover. Most examples had the 3.9 litre V8 engine and five-speed manual gearbox. Most elements of the CSK's specification were drawn from the four-door Vogue SE or from US-market models. Each car has a individually numbered plaque on the radio panel confirming its exclusivity, discreetly bears his insignia, and in 1990 cost £28,995 (manual). For an automatic you had to pay £30,319.32.|
The CSK is also the most aesthetically pleasing Range Rover ever built. Outside, the stunning Beluga Black paintwork is contrasted with chrome bumpers and silver pinstripe coach lines whilst discrete silver CSK logos are positioned on both front wings and one on the lower tailgate. The elegant CSK lettering on the sides of the scuttle panel supposedly represents Spen King's signature, but his bank probably wouldn't honour any cheque with this scrawled across it. The great man confessed some years ago that he had to write his initials in three or four different ways before Land Rover stylists found a version they liked! The paintwork looks good because Beluga Black is a clear over base colour and the lacquer really brings out a depth of shine. All models also feature a black front spoiler incorporating integral fog lamps. Two further driving lamps are mounted on the grille for improved night-vision. The CSK also features distinctive black-edged/rimmed, five spoke silver alloy wheels, unique to this limited edition.
The original owners of the CSK received a special sales brochure and an original Range Rover CSK Owners Pack in a cardboard box, containing the original black wooden box with an etched metal plate, the sales folder and a certificate of authenticity containing the original thank-you slip written and signed by Charles Spencer King himself. The Owners Packs are a collector's item nowadays
CSK number 75 of 200 was first registered in the UK as a right hand drive car in May 1991 through Minories Garages, Middlesbrough. From then the car has good service history with main dealers in London. The car was converted to left hand drive in 2005 and shipped to Holland for the last owner. The car has covered 117,000 miles and has been converted to LPG with the tank fitted in the spare wheel area. The car also has side wheel arch rubbing strips fitted.
As the CSK was only made in right hand drive, this is rare motor car with only one other car known to have been converted to left hand drive.
The CSK over the past year has become a very collectable car and prices are going up on a monthly basis, making this automatic, left hand drive car very desirable car.
