3.5L V8 · manual TRANSMISSION · A/C

1982 saw the introduction of the factory built 4 door Range Rover. This example is the 438th to come off the line for the 1982 model year, making it one fo the earliest factory 4 doors ever built. 1982 falls into our favorite year range for Range Rover Classics. It has the classic, simple design of early Suffix models but with more luxury and comforts, yet avoids the mechanical headaches of later fuel injected models. The 3.5L carbureted engine is more robust than the later EFI Range Rover engines, and is much simpler to maintain. It’s extremely quick off the line and feels much more powerful than American spec Range Rovers. It has the same drivetrain as the Range Rover Jeremy Clarkson used in the Top Gear Bolivia special. We chase car-ed twenty Porsche 911s through 150 miles of Hill Country back roads in this Range Rover, and we managed to keep up the entire time. Contract @gruppechat if you don’t believe us.
