From the Bahama gold colorway to the 3528cc V8 Petrol Carburetor Zenith-Stromberg 175CD type engine, the Range Rover debuting at this year's Salon Rétromobile is a statement piece. It's not new, however. It will be one of 10 factory-restored 1978 three-door Range Rover Classics. The third entry in Range Rover's Reborn program, the vehicles have received an overhaul at the hand's of Land Rover's restoration team. Holding true to authenticity, each automobile's refurb incorporates Land Rover Classic parts. The program's goal has been to allow customers to purchase vintage Range Rovers directly from Land Rover Classic itself. Despite the scarcity of product and £135,000 price tag, it's definitely the best way to embrace nostalgia but ride for the future.

Salon Rétromobile will take place in Paris, 8-12 February 2017.
