Description

In June 1970, the Range Rover was introduced to the public, to much critical acclaim. It appeared that Rover had succeeded in their goal of a car equally capable both on and off road - arguably, better than any four-wheel drive vehicle of its era in both environments. With a top speed of 95mph and acceleration from a standstill to 60mph in less than 15 seconds, performance was stated as being better than many family saloon cars of its era. Off-road performance was good, owing to its long suspension travel and high ground clearance.

Originally, the Range Rover was fitted with a detuned 135hp version of the Buick-derived Rover V8 engine as fitted to the model offered here today. The 3,528cc engine was increased to a displacement of 3,947cc for the 1990 model year, and 4,197cc in 1992. The car offered here today is a petrol Range Rover in remarkably sound condition. The interior appears in remarkably good condition for its age. Finished in green with sand interior, featuring automatic transmission, the car has had a total of 4 registered keepers and requires full restoration. Offered at No Reserve, these classic Range Rovers are ageing very gracefully.
