Range Rover Classic 3.5 V8 - 1980 (LHD)

Finished in Sahara Dust with Sandstone interior, this two-door Range Rover Classic is at home competing on Le Jog as well as taking part in touring style events. In fact, as part of their preparation for competing on the 2013 running of Le Jog, Mission MotorSport took part on the Throckmorton challenge - a real test of handling! This vehicle is standard in most every sense - the V8 engine based on the small block Buick motor wafts you along with ease, coupled with the venerable four speed standard gearbox, this Range Rover Classic can tackle most conditions she comes across. Ideal for those events where the weather could be inclement.

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 95 mph (153 km/h) and acceleration from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 15 seconds, performance was stated as being better than many family saloon cars of its era.

This vehicle is available by invite only. Please contact Mark on arriveanddrive@hero-era.com for further information
