The first generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996. The original car was not designed as a luxury 4x4; while certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early models had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards designed to be washed down with a hose. Features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors; air conditioning, cloth/leather seats and wooden interior trim were fitted later. The Range Rover was a body-on-frame design with a box section ladder type chassis similar to contemporary Land Rovers. The Range Rover utilised coil springs as opposed to leaf springs, permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel disc brakes and was originally powered by the Rover V8 engine.
This example is a rare Brooklands model (one of 150) and is in excellent condition. The green paintwork has a great depth to it and the grey velour trim in very good order. The body was restored two years ago and she drives with no known faults. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years' MoT test certificate, together with some service history, Range Rover Classics have become highly desirable and sought after. A limited edition such as this and presented in the condition that K186 APC is, will always attract attention from Range Rover enthusiasts.
