One of the finest Range Rover “resto-mods” we have seen, presenting superbly following a restoration that cost over £40,000. Offering a myriad of internal and mechanical upgrades, this Suffix A has the luxury and performance that the original lacked. When this icon of 20th century motoring was new in 1971 the owner could only dream of this level of luxury. The leather is the period correct shade of Palomino and the wood cappings hint at the luxury of Rolls Royce, whilst the effortlessly smooth 4.6-litre petrol engine certainly has the pull of a Bentley. Thanks to the attention to detail and the upgrades that Range Rover restoration specialists Twenty Ten Engineering carried out in 2014, this rare Suffix’A’ had the distinction of featuring in the December 2014 of Land Rover Owner magazine, who claimed in an extensive article: “The modifications are subtle, even invisible in many cases; and even the more obvious upgrades are in keeping with the feeling of the original vehicle.” Unique “resto-mods” can often be seen advertised with specialist classic Range Rover dealers for upwards of £60,000, we have therefore a car that looks the part and performs better than new, at a price that competes with the best very on offer.
