A landmark design that almost single-handedly created the booming market in dual-purpose 4x4s, the Range Rover was greeted with universal acclaim on its arrival in 1970 and has remained the class leader ever since. The fact that the original lasted in production for 24 years before being replaced in 1994, only serves to illustrate the soundness of the concept. In fact, the 'old' Range Rover - renamed Range Rover Classic - did not disappear immediately but continued to be built for another year alongside the new version. The latter - code named Pegasus during development - was the same length (108") in the wheelbase as the old Vogue SE and featured air suspension offering variable ground clearance. The proven Rover V8 engine was further developed for the new model and offered in either 4.0- or 4.6-litre capacities, the latter producing 225bhp. Rover Group's new owners BMW provided the diesel version's six-cylinder turbo. Later developments on the top-of-the-range 4.6 HSE model included Bosch electronic engine management and revised inlet manifolding - introduced for 1999 - that greatly improved acceleration. Outwardly this luxurious new model was distinguishable by its 18"-diameter five-spoke alloy wheels shod with low-profile tyres.
This lefthand-drive Range Rover 4.6 to North American specification has that market's emission control system and automatic transmission. It was acquired directly from the factory by the Museum and has covered a minimal mileage only. The vehicle is offered with current road fund licence and Swansea V5.
