Description

This 3500 petrol V8 Range Rover has been registered for the first time in Italy in Turin in 1972. It is a very rare suffix A chassis, and one of the first RR LHD, still holding original and quite special Italian plates (TO-Yxxxxx).
In 1983 it was bought by a well-known collector of Jaguar cars named Vincenzo Fulginiti, who kept the car in Sestrière, one of the most famous vacation destinations in Monte Bianco ski resort in Italy.
Later on, in 2008, it was sold to Mr. Edoardo Casolari.

Guglielmo Miani, collector and Milanese fashion and textiles entrepreneur, bought the car in 2009. The car needed a complete restoration, which was undertaken by Mario Galbiati. Mr. Galbiati has hand built most of the Zagato cars – such as the Aston Martins of the ‘60s.
Later on, he opened his body shop and hundreds of important collectors asked him to restore their cars, including the Alfa Romeo museum that committed him the renovation of most of their cars.
This example of Range Rover has been completely cosmetically restored in its original Tuscan blue shade and mechanically brought into a perfect shape by Galbiati.
The interior has been kept original apart from the carpets that have been changed. The car has been protagonist of LARUSMIANI Spring Summer 2018 campaign and can be seen on many shots.

Can be inspected in Milan at LARUSMIANI HQ; offers are invited and car will be sold at best offer.
