In this episode of Harry’s Garage, Harry Metcalfe takes a look at the Classic Range Rovers:
We have seen more and more customers acquire and finance classic Range Rover’s in the last two years. Land Rover’s commitment to their heritage operations and their Reborn programs have certainly lifted the profile of all Land Rover products as collectable cars – although of course they were always desirable to a vast swathe of the population already.

What Harry has done here is interesting. Taking an early Suffix A and one of the last V8 Vogues before they developed a Discovery interior and were officially designated “Classic Range Rover” makes for a fascinating comparison. Despite looking like the same car (broadly speaking), the buying audience and character of both cars are very different as Harry explains.
The development of the car may have taken place at a glacial pace but they are two quite different cars – if you are thinking of buying one or the other this video will give you plenty to think about (but we’re not sure how anyone could resist the towelling-style cloth seats of the later model).
