To mark the huge success and the 20th anniversary of the model, Land Rover launched the limited-edition Range Rover ‘CSK’ named in honour of Charles Spencer King, the man who designed the original Range Rover. The CSK was intended primarily to publicise the new anti-roll suspension and was promoted as a sportier Range Rover with only 200 numbered examples produced. This special Range Rover featured a number of modifications improving both performance and passenger comfort and was the fastest production Range Rover ever built at that time, with a chipped version of the 3.9-litre V8 engine developing 185bhp. The increase in performance is complemented by improved handling at high speeds and Land Rover had introduced front and rear anti-roll bars and sports dampers, to give a smoother, more comfortable ride on normal roads. These cars were finished exclusively in Beluga Black with chrome bumpers, silver pinstripe coach lines, and discrete silver CSK logos positioned on both front wings and one on the lower tailgate. The interior is pure Range Rover with contrasting beige soft leather trim and the American Walnut fascia rail and door inserts are exclusive to this model.
The rare and historic Range Rover variant offered here is number 181 of the 200 and benefits from an extensive ‘body off’ restoration between 2012 and 2018. The engine was serviced recently and is in great running order, while new Michelin tyres were fitted 2019. Our CSK is presented in excellent condition and is offered with restoration invoices amounting to £113,000.
