1990s / 2012 Paris Motor Show / British / Land Rover

Live from the Paris Motor Show: Range Rover CSK

The Paris Motor Show opened its doors to the press this morning. The focus is evidently placed on new and upcoming cars but manufacturers sometimes roll out old models to show how their lineup has evolved over the years.

Land Rover was one of the few who did just that: next to the all-new fourth-gen 2013 Range Rover was a 1991 first-generation Range Rover CSK, a limited edition of 200 examples built in honor of Charles Spencer King, the creator of the original model. Only offered in Beluga Black, the CSK models were better equipped than standard Range Rovers and came with a 185-horsepower 3.9-liter V8, ABS brakes, alloy wheels and bumper-mounted driving lights.

The example shown here is owned by a private party and has been displayed at other auto shows around the world over the past couple of years.

  1. Yea, this is actually CSK 001, Land Rover have been borrowing it from me since the launch of the Range Rover Sport in 2005. They have used it several times for PR work.

    Love the car myself, although I am considering selling at the moment.
