This beautifully original example was delivered new to Italy in 1980. Finished in sandstone with a matching interior, she has received a full bodywork restoration and some minor mechanical fettling to bring her up to the HERO standard. A firm favourite on Le Jog where the four wheel drive offers a huge advantage in wintery conditions, thanks to the torquey V8 and spacious interior; this is a very stylish and comfortable car to tour in.

History of Model
Launched in 1970 to instant international acclaim, the Range Rover had been in development for over five years. Conceived to appeal to those who needed the off-road capabilities of a Land Rover, but for whom greater comfort and performance on-road were desirable, the Range Rover launched the “modern” SUV as we all now know it. The final design, launched in 1970 with bodywork styled largely by the engineering team rather than David Bache's styling division, was marketed as 'A Car For All Reasons'.
In its original guise, the Range Rover was more capable off-road than the Land Rover but was much more comfortable, offering a top speed in excess of 100 mph (160 km/h), a towing capacity of 3.5 tons, spacious accommodation for five people and groundbreaking features such as a four-speed, dual-range, permanent four-wheel-drive gearbox and hydraulic disc brakes on all wheels. With styling by the legendary David Bache, the Range Rover has since become a world renowned design classic – and is one of the few cars in the world to have been exhibited at the Louvre Museum.
