Silverstone Auctions has announced the first ever Range Rover will be sold under auction on September 4 at the Salon Privé in London. Built in 1969, the SUV was registered on January 2, 1970. It features a 3, 5 liter V8 engine, a top speed over 100mph and has 86,950 miles on the odometer.
After a six-year restoration, № 001 is expected to fetch £100,000-£140,000 ($167,875-234,985). However, experts are predicting the final price could go much higher. The Range Rover has matching numbers on the engine, gearbox, chassis, and the aluminum hood which means they are all original.
So, Range Rover fans will be waiting with interest for the final bid and the new owner of this particular very first one.
