Land Rover has already been doing factory quality restorations on its Series I SUV to give customers effectively brand new collectible classics. Now the team has set its eyes on the first gen Range Rover. They have already built one, which they plan to show off at Salon Rétromobile 2017. Road and Track reports that the first of the restorations is a 1978 Range Rover producing 135 hp out of a 3.5 liter v-8.
The team plans to restore 10 more for customers for $170,000 each. While that seems like a steep price for a 39 year old bare-basic SUV, think of the trouble saved over inventing a time machine and going back to 1978 to buy one new.
