Legacy Overland Range Rover Classic

The goal for Legacy Overland's new Range Rover build was to stay true to the original design with some subtle yet substantial tweaks to create a rugged, high-performance sleeper. The restored 1990 Range Rover Classic is finished in a classic Land Rover green that has a more metallic hue and the tires are fitted with restored five-spoke Range Rover alloys. The interior is finished with a saddle-colored leatherette with black edge piping and it also features the original Blaupunkt radio with a Sony Bluetooth media receiver and a four-speaker audio system. 

Power comes from a GM LS3 6.2L V8 that produces 430 hp and is matched to a four-speed automatic transmission. Other features include an original gauge cluster with a Dakota Digital conversion box, a Latchwell E-Stopp push-button parking brake, a battery kill switch, a hidden key lockbox, LED headlamps, Hella Rallye 100 spotlamps, a custom installed black fiber carpet, and electric rear view mirrors.
