Rising Range Rover values have no doubt spurred on Jaguar Land Rover’s decision to sell ‘as new’ examples as part of its ‘Reborn’ initiative. You’ll see the first result of this at the Salon Rétromobile 2017, where the company’s overhauled 1978 classic will be on display.
Range Rover Reborn is a new programme offering prospective customers the unique opportunity to purchase an original Range Rover, direct from Land Rover Classic in the UK. The launch of Range Rover Reborn builds on the successful introduction of Land Rover Series I Reborn last year.
Reborn in Solihull
Every Range Rover Reborn will undergo a complete restoration according to the company’s original 1970s factory specification. They will all use Land Rover Classic Parts to preserve and protect the vehicle’s authenticity.
Land Rover Classic’s expert team has drawn on decades of engineering and design expertise to complete the first Range Rover Reborn and will advise customers of the best options for base vehicles – in terms of collectability, preferred chassis numbers and unique characteristics. Prices for completed Range Rover Reborn restorations from Land Rover Classic will start from £135,000 GBP.

Another highlight for show visitors will be the European debut presentation of the ‘New Original’ Jaguar XKSS. Following its successful introduction to media at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles in November 2016, this stunning XKSS finished in Sherwood Green is the engineering blueprint for nine cars destined for delivery to customers worldwide in 2017.
