Based on the first two-door version that was launched in 1970, the car is a Bahama Gold-coloured 1978 model. It’s been restored to exact original specification using Land Rover Classic parts and period production techniques.
The car features a 3.5-litre V8 petrol engine, which uses Zenith Stromberg carburettors to produce 132bhp at 5000rpm and 186lb ft of torque at 2500rpm.
Drive is sent to all four wheels through a four-speed manual transmission with a lockable central differential. The car’s technical specifications are exactly as they were when it left the factory nearly 40 years ago.
Today’s model is the first of 10 to be restored by Land Rover’s specialist division. Each model is created for buyers who can purchase them from £135,000, which is close to £35,000 more than a new V8-engine Range Rover.
