Restarting classic car production (AM DB4)

Post by MarkHawkins » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:48 pm

I saw this on the BBC

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england ... 5-year-gap

several other companies have done this, but at 1.5M each it exceeds the 150K for the Range Rover classic from Solihull!

Probably a more practical buy than an AM Vulcan?

Land Rover are now rebuilding the more recent Defender model (with some upgrades) in addition to the Series 1 and RR Classic

Will 5 litres and 400 hp be enough when other companies are offering 6.3 LS3 engines with supercharging as an option?
