Just few hours before the beginning of the Spielwarenmesse (we respect embargoes so we don’t post exhibitor’s products photos before the opening of the fair) the Hong Kong based Carisma dropped the bomb: a wonderful replica of the 1981 4-Door Range Rover produced in collaboration with with JLR and their Classic Works.
This new replica features all the Gen 2 Hop Ups and includes the new ARC-1 ESC, CMS Mount and Shock Towers. The Carisma 1981 4-Door Range Rover Classic SCA1E is build on the standard wheelbase SCA-1E Chassis and a range of specific hop ups designed for this vehicle is planned.
This iconic British vehicle was first revealed to the world in 1970 and took the public by storm thanks to its rare combination of functional capability and design.
The Range Rover was the first vehicle globally to deliver permanent 4WD while also featuring a split tailgate, clamshell bonnet and continuous waistline. It’s sophisticated looks, driver comforts and all-round performance made it a very sought after vehicle.
It was soon adopted as the vehicle of choice for both Town and Country use. Elegant enough to be parked outside any London boutique, restaurant or nightclub, yet capable enough to hold its own off road on mountain passes, through deep fords, in fields or anywhere in-between. After 11 years on the market, the Range Rover was then made available as a 4-door vehicle, and this is the model we have worked closely with the Land Rover Classic Works to faithfully reproduce.
